    Home Barrel Polishing?

    I was watching this video on the P3AT and the guy doing the vid recommended this "wizards brand polishing cloth." Is anyone familiar with this? When I sent my PM9 back to Kahr, one thing I noticed when I got it back was that the barrel had been polished so much it looks like a mirror. I would love to do this to my other weapons if I could do it myself with a simple cloth-like piece and I wouldn't risk harm to the gun. Does anyone know about this Wizards Cloth? Is it something you can pick up at a hardware store? It is as simple as just rubbing it all over the barrel, or must an abrasive or liquid be added? I would love a smooth polished barrel on my Kahr P380 and CW9, right now it feels a little gritty.

    the act of polishing something involves friction and some sort of abrasive. I was a skeptic for flitz products but one day I broke down and bought a flitz kit... ohmehgosh its unbelievable... I don't know whats in it but somehow it brought shine in just about anything I polished with it... paint, blue, metal, alloys, plastic, rubber... its incredible stuff... I was waiting for it to oxidize or something but it doesn't.

    I would try that first.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Kahr barrels are nickel plated. Polishing then can wear through the plating quickly.
