The board is going to be upgraded very soon. I suspect that this time, it is going to be painful. The board may be down for several hours. I don't know exactly when it is going to happen, but expect it fairly soon and most likely while you're all sleeping (or should be anyway). If you see that the board is down, please do not reload the page every second. It is not helping the process. Wait an hour or two and try again. Thank you for your understanding.

Polishing Nickel

Post by Droknows »

Has anyone had any luck? I’m looking at my buddies 586 4” Smith and Wesson thats got a hazy nickel finish. It’s not scratches, but like cloudy in spots. Anyone have a trick for polishing it up or is it just a woods gun now?

I used Mothers Mag and Aluminum Polish from Walmart to clean up couple of Nickel revolvers.
I just use soft cotton cloth and do it by hand. It cleaned up my revolvers nicely.

Ditto. Do it by hand! Short cutting with Power tool will never make you happy.

I've used Flitz Paste Polish and a micro cloth with pretty good results.

Toothpaste works good for the "hazy finish."

Get the kind with the first ingredient Hydrated silica.

Neverdull, comes in a tin can with cotton soaked in magic juice. Shined up my nickel 357 pretty good.

I'm with TC, I like to start with the softest least aggressive avenue first, ten proceed. Neverdull. is a great product, but sometimes does not work.
