Ever notice how the chrome exhaust pipes on your bike change color coming off the engine?

As long as you don't have carbon buildup which can bind the cylinder - I wouldn't worry about it. The only way to keep a gun looking brand new is to not shoot it and that's not in my vocabulary...

At the shop on stainless firearms we use Flitz Metal Polish and a dental pick for those hard to reach places. The Flitz really works well on the end of the cylinder.
God, Family, Guns, in that order.

I use the lead cloth on most of my guns but only sparingly, lightly, and only on the front of the cylinder. I agree with NGIB, use them. No closet queens for me.

Default Forget it

Forget about it,It only gets worse in time. Mine is five years old and it's black across the front wheel.

I use green scrubbie.
