Indiscriminate polishing by neophytes can do damage. It's very difficult to keep polishing pastes out of the inner workings of a gun-especially revolvers. Once inside, the abrasives can imbed in the metal-causing excessive wear. If you can't completely disassemble/reassemble your gun, you shouldn't be polishing it. The excess abrasive must be thoroughly removed from the inside of the gun. And no- you can't be so careful that none will get inside.
