We had several SS rifles which were damaged or stained and a light bead blasting fixed them right up.

I dont think the smaller circles will help. Once you wipe away the black with a clean rag, and wipe wipe again, there shouldn't be any circular scratches or any mares showing up, just a polished mirrored result.

Well it's not getting that mirrored finish. It's cleaning as far as that goes but the finished isn't chrome like. It's shiny, not dull, but its definitely not a nice polished finish like I want. I want the gun to look new again, not just old and clean. It was near perfect before, now it just looks used.
