    Question 3rd Gen S&W

    I just recently picked up my first SS S&W 3rd Gen. I have given it a good cleaning but I want it to look new. Besides bead blasting are there any other ways to make it look new?

    Not really. I don't think that will make it look like it should.
    Just enjoy it, shoot it and look for a minty one if you must have it.

    I just sold/traded a mint 6906 for a previously owned 39-2.
    I still have its blued counterpart, a 6904 but its nowhere near the condition the 6906 was.
    I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

    Some careful work with Scotchbrite pads can do wonders. Make dang sure your working with all-stainless & no anodized aluminum. BTW, I prefer my Porsche & my wife to "look new". I prefer my handguns to show some experience.

    My 6906 has been my go to carry weapon in all seasons for over 20 years. It still looks good as new in spite of several thousand rounds of 9mm during training. But as long as it continues to function flawlessly (never a failure since I bought it in 1990), I don't care if it remains "pretty".
