    What type of finish is on the gun? matte? Bead blasted? Brushed? polished?

    Kimbers usually have a bead blasted-matte finish. Those are harder to fix since you need an air compressor and sandblaster.

    Smith uses a very fine steel brush on revolvers. Very fine. Like steel fur. I've read that some have used 3M Scotchbrite to feather-in to make blemishes disappear, but it takes practice and an artist's eye.
