    Polishing a stainless steel pistol

    I am planning to purchase a Smith and Wesson Model 66 which is a stainless steel revolver. This is going to be basically a plinking gun and a bragging rights gun (I'm mainly a semi-auto guy and rely on a Sig Sauer as my self defense firearm). The seller says that for about $25 I can have a jeweler polish it so that it is pimp shiny bright. Does anyone know of a jeweler or gunsmith in the Puget Sound area who can do this skillfully?

    I sincerely doubt you'll find anyone to shine it for $25. Let us know if you do.

    I think he forgot a zero. By themselves, zeros are pretty worthless. But put 'em where they belong, and bingo! You got something.
    I have polished a lot of stuff, including some stainless. $25 is a generous underestimate. Check with a gunsmith to see what it would really cost.

    You can buy a Dremel and do it yourself. The Dremel is more then $25 but lasts forever.
