Try the Lucas Oil Metal Polish. Works great!

The pads that I keep on hand that do a wonderful job of softly removing small imperfections on a brushed stainless firearm, are the #7448 Ultra Fine and are gray in color.

(There are a couple finer ones like the #7445 white, and the #7447 burgundy.)

You should be able to find them at any auto parts store that also sells automotive painting supplies.

They're not going to do any good for you on a bead blasted looking finish, but brushed they'll do very well.

Metal polish might be a better bet if you're talking actual discoloring or staining of the metal.

Lol, there's either a signature line quote... or a country music line there.

You might take a look at Flitz Polish.
