Default polishing 1911 good idea?

it's my very first hand gun, the 1911 springfield. it came in black and i was wondering if i polish it there would be any problems with rust down the road. Under that paint would anyone know what kinda of metal it is? hopefully they just painted black over SS metal. i love the SS polish metal look to it.

well if it is not SS under and i do polish it. put a nice film of oil over it would there be any problems down the road? it would be great hearing your input. thanks ahead of time.

this is the model i have.
