    Nickel Finished Revolver: Wear? Cleaning?

    In a different thread I mentioned my attraction to that S&W Model 36 Nickel revolver, pictured below.

    Having no experience or knowledge about nickel finishes, could anyone tell me how it wears in terms of abrasion and stains?

    Also, how do you clean off the powder fouling and preserve that handsome finish?

    Depends on how good the finish was in first place and how it was does

    Electro

    none electro .. etc etc

    The finish holds up well if done right but if it cracks and has a base of copper under neither it i think electric has that the copper remover will destroy rest of finish

    same as what bud white said, it depends on how well the finish was done. i would clean it as any gun.
