This message probably belongs in the gunsmithing section but it looks like most folks tend to visit the revolver topic. I own an "Ultimate Bright Stainless" Python which has a couple of little marks and nicks. I know Flitz is great for cleaning up stainless steel but will Flitz allow me to hand buff out these dings? If not, any suggestions? Thanks!

What worked out great for me on a high polished stainless Vaquero was a little Flitz and a felt buffing wheel on the Dremel. Just be a little careful and try to be consistant (uniform) all over on the gloss. A light gentle touch will do it.

Like diamonback says, buff lightly (at a low speed). If you get to violent you will create heat and the finish will develop a blue hue to it.

Brownells also sells a product called "Gunbrite" or something like that. You may want to give that a try.

I have done this with great success on stainless Vaqueros. When I finished you could not tell anything had been done. But I would add the additional step. Dip a small piece of 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper in a bowl of water and sand in a circular fashion until the deeper scratches are removed. Keep rubbing, using water, until it has a slightly dull look to it. If you don't do this first you will have beautifully polished scratches. Then use your Dremel with a felt wheel, and Dremel's roughe, on slow speed and polish in a circular motion. Be very care full not to let the Dremel slip and have the steel shaft marr your Colt.
