Default Cleaning electroless nickel Colt Tropper MK III

Help!

I can't figure out the best way to clean this type of finish and don't want to damage it. Any advice?

If you just want to polish it, use a good grade of toilet paper with no chemicals. Cleaning after shooting is a problem with some solvents.

Clean it as you would any other gun. Solvents won't hurt the plating- just wipe them off when you finish. Don't use abrasives unless you know what you are doing. ALL metal polishes are abrasive, regardless of what it says on the container. Oil the gun after cleaning.
