Removing slight abrasion of hard chromed sides?

Recommended Posts

   The Limited I just picked up has a slight abrasion on one of the brushed sides. Any suggestions for buffing/blending it in without hurting the good chrome? I thought maybe a non-abrasive type Scotch-Brite chased with a polish might do the trick?

I’ve had bad luck fixing things on chromed finishes that I’ve given up. I’d leave it; it adds character. Kydex isn’t suppose to mar the “Wonderfinish” but I got faint lines already.

Very little success touching up chrome.

 

 

You got a picture of the abrasion?

Chrome finish is very thin to start with... don't do it, you will only gonna make it worse.

  I would not do it. But if I did, a buffing wheel with light polishing compound is where I would start.

Add me to list of 'don't do it.'   Let's see how bad it looks. 

 

I have touched up brushed stainless guns with a grey 3M blending pad, but don't know that I'd do that for hard chrome.

Still interested in seeing the severity of the blemish.

 I I know at some point in the past I touched one up with similar mark with no problem. It's 6 more days until I get it out of gun jail.
