    Which flitz product do you guys prefer. Is there different types. I want to buy some online and want to make sure I buy the right stuff. I just plan on lightly polishing some trigger things.

    Thanks for your input.

    any metal/chrome polish, or auto rubbing compound, wheel polish, will work. They are the same.

    Just browse the local Autozone, Walmart, Or Pepboys.

    I use the blue Flitz paste from the tube first, and then Flitz metal polish that is more liquid (tan colored).

    I have used http://simichrome-polish.com/ for more years than I can remember and never felt the need for others. It can be found in many auto/motorcycle shops. SJ 40

    Mothers is the 'softest.' Next is Flitz, the 'roughest/grittiest' is Semi Chrome. I have used all 3.
