After the soak it was time to pop the sideplate. It was gunky but not as bad as I expected.

Then the rear sight. To everyone who said to just buy the whole assembly: YOU WERE RIGHT. Of course I didnít listen, and was forced to perform micro-surgery on it. Never again. But its done.

Last was a rubdown with a purple pad then a gray one. All the scratches and almost all of the pits disappeared.

I think it looks ok. My nephew prefers Pachmayrs so thatís what I went with.

That turned out great! Hopefully, your nephew will take better care of it than its previous owner.
