    I bought a used GP100 this week, while there are no major dings or scratches, there is some holster wear and scuffing. I have used Metal Glo and Flitz metal polish in the past on swords and knives, anyone ever use it on their revolver? If I wanted to have my GP100 refinished is it possible to get it to look like the Lipseys dealer exclusive http://www.gunblast.com/images/SHOT2008/Day1/DSC02178.jpg? Would a simple bead blasting be the way to acheive this? Does anyone have a favorite refinisher for thier revolvers? My local shop has a gunsmith, but in all honesty I have little faith in him and I would rather send it to a competent refinisher, preferable one that can do a few things to my 1911 and blue that as well.

    Bead works and looks good...for a time.
    It does show scratches more IMHO.
    But you can have it re-done in a few years.

    Would that give the same finish as the Lipseys exclusive? If so I will probably have that done.

    I think I am gonna have that bead blasting done, but in the meantime I am gonna get some metal polish and polish it up. I put 50rds through it today, I expected allot of kick, but to my suprise it wasn't bad at all. I couldn't get my buddy that went with me to shoot it though, he was very intimdated by it, maybe next time.
