    I have a Charter Arms Bull Dog 44 spl that I just didn't care for the flat mat grey finish. I always thought what a waste to treat stainless steel that way. So I first polished the cylinder and the barrel for a two tone look. I liked the new look. I was asked why I didn't polish all of the gun and well that got me to getting the sanding paper out to polish it all. I am actually glad I got a nudging to continue charter44spl 009.JPG bulldogbuff 003.JPG BDpol1 best2.JPG buffing the dog. I wish the camera could capture the overall shine to it. I guess it isn't the camera but he who presses the button, me.
    Here are pics of stock then two tone then total buff.

    The two tone looks good, but the total polish is much nicer. I did the same on my SS GP100.

    I did that with my GP-100.
    I now have finger prints all over it. I think I prefer the satin look.

    What's nice about a polished firearm, is that finger prints wipe right off. Also any fine holster marks can also be polished out. Just a little bit more maintenance, but to me, well worth the effort. YMMV.
