I made a cardboard wheel, wetted it to soften it, slapped it to a dremel, and went to town.

Do it...it'll bring old, dull stainless back to life and even though the rag LOOKS dirty, it's still very effective.

I keep a dirty one for the initial cleaning and a less used one for final polishing...

It WILL mess up blueing though...

its normal. knock the chunks off be careful of over cleaning as it can remove metal opening the cylinder gap prematurely. on my 6 shooters i look at it as a sign of a gun being used for what it was made for.
