Talking

Polishing it with mother's metal polish shouldn't hurt it as long as you don't use a high speed wheel like on a Dermal tool.

It's unlikely that you'll hurt it even with a Dremel.

It's what happens when you can't get to the range, but want to play with your gun.

Default yea

I go to the range every week at least once and typically put 200 rounds at a time thru the gun every week.. This is my 1st pistol... im so very happy with making the decision to buy S&W M&P but I wanted to make my pistol more appealing then just all black.. so I did a aluminum FSS apex trigger that helped my Groupings GREATLY tan backstraps to offset the black and I polished the barrel and painted the engraving just for looks... Now I have the gun I love to shoot. that looks amazing aswell..

Rastoff I posted pictures of the finish in a new thread check it out
