  • Gun Barrel Polish

    I recently scratched the blued barrel of one of my new guns, so I tried to polish this out by hand using wet and dry and wire wool. But whenever I apply some cold bluing it feels very rough. Why?

    probably because you used a wire wheel on it and didnt sand it enough.

          I've sanded decorative copper up to 2000 grit before and it comes out *almost* looking polished.

          Wonder if the >$20 for a wheel (or two) some compound and an arbor might be worth it....
