Polishing
 
1 Attachment(s)
I want to polish the cylinder release, trigger, hammer, and cylinder on my judge. Who thinks I should and who thinks I shouldn't?

I have done various parts on many guns, but normally just do the barrels on my auto loaders. I just dip the parts to be polished in vinegar for a few hours to take the bluing off, jeweler's rouge and a buffing wheel.

I've done a few myself. I just need votes on whether or not to do it on my judge.

Is there a reason you want to polish those parts?

Something specific, like trigger is not crisp or something?

Just remember, its very easy to remove the surface on metal - not so easy to put it back.

I want to see a polished judge.

Just for looks and because all my other handguns have been polished.

Go for it.

If you polish the bluing off you will have bare, unprotected steel which can rust very quickly. It will also ruin the value of your gun.
Not a good idea at all!

Got a no. And a good point.
