Hey everyone, Ive got a new 686 stainless. Ive seen pictures of these guns on forums after they have been polished, and they look great. Now heres the thing, my gun is new - never fired, i do like the looks of the polished guns BUT, Ive heard some that have tried it say they have messed there guns finish up, and only want to get the factory finish back on them. Now dont get me wrong, i do like the finish on my gun but the pictures ive seen on some forums after they have been polished, could make a blind man see. So heres the thing. Ive heard some say use scotch brite, others mag wheel cleaner, and some chrome polish. Now seeing how i already like the finish on my gun, but i would like to polish it to a luster beauty shine, should i attempt this or not ? The last thing i would want, is to make a perfectly beautifull gun into a mess, if its easy to do i would attempt it, but if its risky theres no way. I appreciate your thoughts, and i thank all of you for your insight.
