    for stainless i have found a lead out cloth works the best. i have/use two different types, one is a cloth and the other is cut into round patches that can also be used to run down the barrel. or just good hard work with a cleaning brush.

    Flitz metal polish also works GREAT on stainless.

    A pencil eraser works well on stainless, especially odd spots.

    +1 on the pencil eraser. I keep a pink pearl in my cleaning box and it gets a lot of use. Works really well!!
