I like my polished Ruger single actions ( currently have 2 pairs )
as far as not polishing... I'd suggest not polishing the top of the barrel / sight rail, so you don't get glare there... otherwise my Rugers come from the factory with polished triggers & hammers...
another suggestion...warning about machine polishing too heavily, & be prepared to disassemble & flush all the parts, polishing compound is a mild abrasive, & while it could actually help the smoothness of the action ( in some cases ) leaving it around on the inside of the gun, could damage some of the firing mechanism over the long term
In life you either make dust or eat dust...
