    It's stainless steel...it doesn't require much beyond a coat of Renaissance Wax or a light gun lube.

    Depends on how it will be used. If a collector, just an occasional wipe down. If a shooter it needs cleaning just like any other revolver.

    Most likely a safe item. But occasionally I think the right thing to do is shoot it. It’s close to new but not so that kinda settles that lol

    When using the renaissance wax do you leave a coating or is it on and off? I know it works for wood but never tried it on metals.

    Apply a coat of wax, then buff it off with a microfiber cloth.

    A cloth diaper or old tee shirt also works, but whatever you use, launder it often as cloths tend to accumulate dirt and grit that can scratch.

    Make sure you take the rubber grips off and wax frame under them. Wax twice there. Moisture tends to be trapped there.

    You beat me to it. Good advice, especially to those who still think that stainless steel guns are impervious to corrosion.
