You could polish it. You can also have it painted. I advise strongly against doing it yourself. This picture is a Stainless Steel finish.

Just polish it by hand. Rag and polish. I do mirror polishes for my customers every day with rag and polish. It is labor intensive and it takes time but a polish done with power tools and sand paper is just not the same.

If you decide to polish it I can do the slide for $40 + $10 for return shipping. If you want the barrel done also the total would be $60 + $10 return shipping. Turn around time is 3-5 days.
