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.

Idiot scratch gone. (Thank you PlayboyPenguin)

I got a hell of a deal on a stainless “100 years of service” series 70 Colt 1911 (O1070A1CS) because it had the dreaded idiot scratch.

I can't shoot it (without gloves). Between my big hands and no beaver tail grip safety, it gives me hammer bite. That's a different story I've already told on this forum, but the wife loves it and proclaimed it “hers”.
The idiot scratch bothered me much more than it did her. After watching PlayboyPenguin's video, I set out to correct this.


Before:

After patience and some elbow grease this is what it now looks like:

Thanks again PlayboyPenguin.
