My Micro38

For several days in the afternoons while watching old westerns I would polish on this 10-7 Smith with Flitz. It helped it a lot, didn't remove all the spots on the cylinder but they are much less noticeable. We (BIL) and I have no idea what made the spots.

It is also wearing the Thailand Ebay grips, they feel good in hand, look better I think to.

I've used Flitz on my knives for a long time but never tried it on a gun before. I have one that I might try it on.

I have no idea what was on the little snub and I guess Flitz is not a magic potion but the little 38 looks 110% better than before I used it.
Not counting any extra grips I only have 200 bucks in it. I didn't need another 38 but for the price I was not going to pass on it.
The longer your fingers hold out the more it cleans off, I worked on it several different times over several days.
