I have read a good deal of posts concerning the cleaning of a Colt Combat Commander with a Satin Nickel (electroless) finish. Alas, I have not heard anything definitive that will work to brighten the finish without harming the nickel finish. I plan to use FP10 to clean, lube and protect. But can I use Flitz as I do on stainless, and to a certain extent on blued finishes. Pro-shot Lead Clean Cloth says it is ok for nickel as well as stainless, but that is the label, not first hand experience, and does not refer to satin electroless finish.
Does anyone know for sure what is awesome and what is awful for this finish??

Thanks in advance, BOB

Hope this is right place for this thread.

I polish my Kahr electroless nickel with Flitz. It does a wonderful job.

I'm not sure about the others you mentioned, but I hightly recommend Flitz, and little goes a long way as you probably know.

Thanks Stinger. Is your Kahr a brushed, satin or bright finish?

Jim Keenan said that he ran a bare frame and slide through a dishwasher cycle and it came out as clean as a whistle. He didn't specify the brand of detergent, though... :cool:

Luck!
