I would call a gunsmith. You may be able to clean up the outside of the barrel and reciever but the internal parts are questionable. If you get the rust removed, you will more than likely have a pitted barrel. A good gun shop might be able to do a fair job but it will not be cheap at all.

I have seen this happen to guns sitting exposed to the elements around my grandfathers farm buildings. What a shame.

Tom is right, take it there and have them take care of it for you. That way you will learn how it all works from them and not have to worry about missing a step.
