Any tips from the gallery on the "What to do" ,or "What not to do" to shine and protect the finish of stainless steel and nickel plated firearms? I'm really refering to polished stainless and hi-gloss nickel... any trade secrets out there/

This is Brownells Metal Cote Epoxy. It's made for any bare metal finish that you want to preserve. It works better than a clear coat for painted finishes too.

These work pretty well to protect the finish of most handguns:

Folks over at the Colt forum swear by Flitz. I use it for a quick wipe down once in a few months.

SPARINGLY -----> VERY LIGHT COAT.
