Replacement to re-blueing..finishing help
I recently acquired an older S&W revolver with a pretty significant amount of pitting and rust. I'm not in the market to have the gun re-blued but I've heard horror stories about people applying chemicals to their weapons and damaging the gun permanently. Is there a cleaning material / method I can use to remove the rust and lighten the pitting without ruining the gun's blueing and finishing? Thanks!
