I just finished watching Sahara and there was alot of AK play with polished bolt carriers. If I put some polishing wheels on my bench grinder would it still be a total PITA to polish it up to a mirror finish?

TS had one polished up by his jeweler, you can find the pics if you're curious enough to search.

Yea I found his thread asking if anyone had done it, but didn't see any pics. His last update was "looking better". I'll check his other posts.

So...if I don't want to take it to a jeweler what do I need to polish it on my bench grinder?

A buffing wheel and some rouge.
