    Hi there fellow gunners --

    I need to hear some opinions on the best solution/compound used to maintain the exterior of a S&W model 29 that is all chrome.

    I think I did something stupid when I wiped it out with some Remington wipes. Now it has some spots on it and I want to polish/shine it back.

    Your ideas are greatly appreciated ...

    Mother's Mag Polish. Available in your local auto store. You can't do much better than that. GunBrite and Flitz are second choices. Be sure to use a clean cloth and keep moving to a clean(er) area. It will turn black pretty quickly.

    Works great on stainless, too.

    With any compound, check a small, unobtrusive area to make sure the coating is what you think it is. I don't think you have much to fear here, though.

    Like rodell said, Flitz would be good choice, I don't think Mag polish offer any protections.

    Flitz or craftsmen blue compound jewelry polish, and a Dremel with a felt wheel, will totally get the shine back and if you wear gloves while shooting, no need for fingerprints.
