Fixing scratches on polished stainless
« on: February 13, 2018, 11:18:05 PM »
I've got a pre-owned shiny stainless 75 joining my collection soon, it's a pretty clean gun, but has a few light scratches here and there.

Need some recommendations on which polish gets the best results.   I've used Flitz on a few stainless guns, seems to be pretty good.  My thought is polished stainless is somewhat easier to clean up.   Let me know what you do to keep your shiny 75s shining!

I had the same issues with one I picked up recently.....I have a bench grinder that I have polishing wheels on, I use a stainless steel compound/rouge....takes the scratches out nicely and then I go over the entire surface of the gun to ensure an even/consistent highly polished look  ;)

leave it alone.

The only thing you will do is to want to fix the next scratch and the next scratch and the next scratch.....ect

If its a regular use gun, not a bad option......if though you just like looking at or displaying it, while occasionally taking it to the range, I'd say take care of the scratches.......kind of depends on the OP's intentions  ???  Using buffing wheels it takes literally just a few minutes to do the entire gun.

Use some flitz metal-polish-wax. If that doesn't take it out, leave it alone.
