I think you did a great job on the cleaning. You never know what you might find under that dirt and surface patina.

I own a long musket barrel that I bought very cheap. There was no real surface rust. Just a complete coating of dust/dirt from sitting around for many decades. After a simple oil cleaning, what a surprise. The top of the barrel from breech to muzzle was covered in silver, and the bottom of the barrel was signed by the Italian maker dating to the late 17th Century.

Again, I think the stirrups look great.
