I want to smooth some of the sharp edges on my stainless steel revolvers. What is the best way? Thanks

I just used some 800 grit followed by 1500 grit to polish the action on a Model 92 leveraction. Worked great. It's slow, but it is easier to control what is going on. The 1500 grit really brings out a mirror polish on the stainless. LIV

AJ, what kind of finish do they have now? If it's the brushed finish, a lot of people recommend the various ScotchBrite pads.

Mike, ya beat me to it! The plain Scotchbright pad (no soap) does a good job of touching up my GP-100, easily matching the factory finish. I might use 600 or 800 grit to round the corners, then blend the finish with the Scotchbright.

SOFT EDGES

You can soften your edges with 400 wet/dry paper, on a flat stick, like the Doc uses in your mouth, or from an ice cream bar, glued on with spray glue. then go over with 600, then blend in with pad. In all this, go the SAME DIRECTION. Good Luck! :)
