    To complete my Pedersoli Harper's Ferry kit, what materials I should buy for best results (what grit sandpaper, etc)?

    I'm sure I can figure out what I need, but if anyone has suggestions or tips/tricks, I sure would appreciate it. I am most curious how to sand and/polish the brass and barrel. Is Flitz something that would be helpful here?

    I have a drill and dremel, but I'm presuming those aren't advisable on these kits, but I could very well be mistaken.

    Any advice?

    Thanks in advance!

    I prefer scrapers over sandpaper. I also stay away from dremels or drills. I do use emery paper on the barrel and it is wrapped over a file (or a piece of wood).

    I hadn't thought of scrapers, but that makes quite a bit of sense. Thanks!
