    Well, it is basically polishing and smoothing any rough edges and other areas of the pistol. The end result is a pistol that can be (depending on original condition of said pistol) dramatically smoother in overall operation.

    For instance, I have a AMT .45 'Backup' stainless steel pistol which was completely unreliable. I shot a couple hundred rounds through it but still no good. Would FTF or FTE almost every mag. Then I found a nice 'fluff and buff' article and I performed the procedure on my AMT pistol. I found a high number of small trouble spots on the pistol, where there was binding and even some gouging of the metal. I corrected those spots. The results were absolutely spectacular. I could tell an INCREDIBLE difference the first time I racked the slide by hand. It was smooth as butter, whereas before it was always herky-jerky. I have fired a pretty good number of rounds (FMJ only) through the pistol and not one malfunction since the 'fluff and buff'.

    Here's a 'fluff and buff' for a Kel-Tec pistol, but if you Google, you can certainly find more: KTOG.Org - TecWerks - GL's Illustrated Fluff & Buff (fluff and buff) - Page 1 - Kel-Tec Owners Group

    f&b can mean many different thing and can be many different levels of work. some guns must have heavy f&b to get them to run right. some don't need much, just a cleanup and other don't need any. f&b can be a trigger job, work on the barrel, rails, etc... it can be a mix and match of work that you do to make your gun run better. when i buy a gun (new or use) i clean up the feed ramp and sometimes do a trigger job and spring change out, so you can say i did some f&b by doing this.
