White vinegar and water is used to remove lead from barrels. The whole barrel is never soaked only wiped to remove lead. I have never heard of a vinegar polish? The vinegar will cause the barrel to dull in most cases?

Have heard of using vinegar to remove BP residue and corrosive salts from mil-surp ammo but never to clean a barrel. Please post results...vinegar is one hell of a lot cheaper than lead remover Will vinegar remove the bluing from a non SS barrel?

Vinegar is often used to "age" blued handguns. Vinegar will totally remove bluing from gun steel. White vinegar and a few drops of water is a very effective lead remover.

I didnt mean vinegar polish.. But if you soak the barrel for a few hrs in white vinegar use a scrubbing pad then metal polish like mothers chrome polish you remove the black or blueing and your left with a stainless barrel ...
