Mother's Mag on New Gun

    I used some mother's mag polish on a used Ruger Single Six Stainless I have after reading some reviews here. I was very impressed.

    My question is is their any reason not to use it on a new gun? Will it benifit a new gun? I have a NIB Ruger SP100 that has about 50 rounds fired trough it. It looks great, but I was wondering if I were to use some mother's mag on it what will happen. I thought it might shine it up even more, almost a "nickle" finish. Will this hurt or help the new gun?

    What will happen if you use Mother's Mag Polish? It will clean up your revolver. When you fire the rev., the black soot remaining on the face of the cylinder is burned powder residue, the MMP will clean this off, just like new again. Yes, your cleaning the rest of the gun with the mag cleaner will shine it, not quite like nickel, but it will look nice. Being SS, it won't hurt it any, SS being the high strength steel it is, it won't really help it either, other than look nice{er} than the guy who's had his for say, 5 years. Enjoy!:what:

    Keep in mind that MMP is an abrasive. It makes the metal nice and shiney by removing some of the surface metal with finer abrasive than was used at the factory. So now and then will be fine but a frequent use of this stuff will tend to wear away and round over corners that should be sharp. By all means use it to polish the gun to a nice shine if that is your desire. But after that stick with solvents or non abrasive cleaners. Only use the MMP to touch up scuffs and the like as needed.

    As said above, putting a good shine on your revolver will help in keeping it clean. Not much sticks to a very shinny surface.

    This is my S&W Model 649 after 7 or 8 applications of Mother's Mag Polish. Once you get it to a relatively shiny nickel-like appearence, you really don't have to do it that often to maintain the look. This one was done about 2 years ago, and it still looks great.
