    After multiple people asking over the past few years, I finally made a quick video showing s little of the process I use to restore a gun. This video details removing minor surface scratches and dings. It also details reshaping some small parts such as the cylinder release.

    It is a short video that shows some very basic techniques that can be used by anyone without needing special tools are materials.

    One thing I will add to this. A small adjustable hobby vise will hold the gun or part steady. a great tool to have. I got mine from harbor freight for about 20.00
