I have a Charter Arms Bull Dog 44 spl. and I just don't care for the mat finish. So I decided to try and polish the cylinder. Quite a few hours and black fingers later I had the cylinder looking SS shiny. I then thought well making the gun two tone could look nice so then I started to sand the barrel. Oh boy at first I used sanding paper that was way to course. I had it looking really rough making Bubba proud. I wondered was I going to be able to smooth it out or not. LOL I thought well maybe I can paint it black to cover it up. I tried experimenting with some cold blue but it doesn't work on stainless steel. Oh boy I was really making Bubba proud by now. So I found some 600 grit paper made for using on metal. I got to rubbing it and the rough area started to smooth up. I thought well this is promising and I might tell Bubba to go sit on the porch swing and watch the squirrels play. Using the 600 I got the barrel looking looking pretty good. I then used my dremel with 1500 grit body buffing compound. That took a lot of black out of the metal and shined it up even more. Then I took some metal cleaner/polish again using the dremel. That brought even more black out of the metal. I used the buffing compound and polish on the barrel and cylinder. Bubba muttered something as he walked off after looking at the results. I like the two tone look it has now.
