Never had that problem but I would try some paste style chrome wheel polish.

I suggest you consult with a jeweler first. Having said that, what I would do is sand with 400 to 1000 grit-reversing direction with each increase. Hope this helps-good luck

Since this is more of a gunsmithing issue, I'll move this to the Smithy forum...

Exactly how are you holstering that pistol? ;)

Guns cause crime like spoons cause Rosie O'Donnell to be fat!

I hunt, therefore I am.

Clarence, you might be able to polish them out depending on how deep they are. If they have penetrated to the steel the only way to get rid of them is to have the slide chromed again. George
