I purchased a pair of USFA Rodeo's from Longhunter about 3 years ago in 44WCF.
As soon as I received them I used 0000 steel wool and Krano oil all over the guns. You don't push down hard but just use a normal pressure with the 0000.
I have had people think that I was shooting a old pair of Colts with the look I received. Go slow and wipe the gun clean as you go so that you end up with the look you want and not all the way back to the white. Take Care David
