I've got a stainless gun with some slight dark spots that I'm trying to remove.

Any suggestions on products or techniques to remove dark spots on stainless? I'm not wanting to use still wool or a synthetic pad that might alter the sheen of the gun where I rub it.

Thanks.

Shelia shine available at restaurant supply stores if that won't remove it then the next step will be mild abrasives like never dull, flitz or mothers.

If you can't find Flitz locally then a product called Simichrome (usually found at
motorcycle shops used for making tail pipes look good) works as well in my
experience. It comes in a tube about the same size as the Flitz, I have used
both products; they are both good for removing cylinder face scorch marks
on stainless revolvers.

Someone got me started on Flitz on the old forum that a lot of us came from.The Flitz is good for blued or stainless guns and leaves a protective coating on the surface.I use the Flitz polish to remove rust and the Flitz wax for protection. It is one of my best secrets for restoring guns that are rusted.

Cajun, it sure is good with brass, back in my largely misspent youth I found
it to be a quite quick substitute for Brasso when your hands are worn out from
all that rubbing, plus Brasso liquid just plain STINKS, they didn't have the paste
kind in those days..........way back in the dark ages.:lol5:

Simichrome is great when polishing brass embedded in leather (don't judge me) because it doesn't discolor the leather.

I'll have to keep that trick in mind for the future, Cajun, thanks. (and NOT
judging you at all)
