    I read, gunbuffer, aka the pot called the kettle black.

    As I put my snazzy flame suit on for what’s coming next.

    @n2soonerz can you post a pic of these scratches?

    600 wet and dry sand paper will get most all scratches out depending on how "polished" a finish it is. Many times Stainless is polished with 400 w/d.

    I'm also interested in having a stainless handgun polished. How much do you charge for something like that? My gun is a 6.5" double action revolver. Can I get some information on what services you offer?

    What Kurt said up there^. Maybe start with a few passes on 400 grit

    Springfield slides are not usually very flat, if you want to just make it look nice then masking off the rounds and hitting it w a wire wheel is the quickest easier way to clean up the flats as opposed to sanding. Unless you have a surface grinder or a granite plate and time.
