I polished mine as well, used a felt tip on the dremmel and JB bore paste gives it a nice look; kinda reminds me of my old 51 navy now. I've heard the 0000 steel wool works well also for "antiquing". Been wanting to try to lightly "polish" the whole thing to give it a used satin "blue" look rather than the flat black.

Here she is in current $250 I ever spent....Still a little PO'ed mine didn't have the edge of the cylinder beveled though


I age my brass with a paste of 3F BP and Dawn liquid dish soap. Paint it on, let it sit a spell and then rinse it off with water.
I'd like to see that
