For whatever its worth - the ONLY vintage guns I've owned that were pitted under the grips - came with the original wood grips in place. Had the grips been Painted on the underside - this could have been mostly prevented.
Some of the worst over-all pitting I've encountered was caused by storing a handgun in an original old holster - which has ruined many antiques.
Tanic acids found in wood & leather + a humid environment - can really do an Ugly. I have found that putting a pistol in a Plastic Food Bag first - will prevent a corrosive reaction when it is stored in a leather holster.
