As above, polishing with metal polishes will bring the gun to a good shine, but it can't being it to the mirror finish of a factory polish.
This is because the satin models still have tiny machine marks left from manufacture, and metal polishes can't remove the significant amounts of metal needed to polish out the marks.

When Colt converts a satin Python to bright polish, they use the same polishing wheels and abrasives they use to polish a factory bright polish.
In other words, they just finish the job they would have done if it was originally to be a bright polish model.

So, you can make it nice and shiny and looking similar to a factory bright polish, but close examination will show the fine machine marks and the finish will not be as mirror-like.
