    Can you polish an idiot mark out of a SS 1911 slide?

    There is a nice gun in the classifieds with a couple doozies. Was wondering if it was fixable.

    I have polished a few out but it is dependent on how "Doozie" they are.
    Is it the springer Trophy Match...?...

    That is the one.

    Dremel with appropriate attachment and blue magic?

    That will work to get after the deep stuff but a proper finish will require a motor mounted wheel. Harbor freight has everything you need for this with the proper compounds.
    I saw that one. It is a beat up piece. Makes me leery of it on the whole. I have owned a couple of them. They are shooters.

    Thanks. Interesting.

    Agreed about the leery part, just do not know.

    It is in the older blue box. Not sure how old it is.

    Yes, you can. Just did this recently. Be very careful if you use power tools. I used 2000 grit emery cloth and the Semicrome polish. Blended it in with the entire side of the frame.

    What about it is beat up? I see the idiot marks but nothing else stands out.

    Gotta agree on the leary, I would want to do a real good inspection on the internal parts, frame and, slide. Anyone that could bugger up a slide just by trying to put the slide stop in makes me wonder what else could be chewed up. Lot of coin for that unknown. Don't mean to bash the gun.
    1911s are like Glocks except they are for grown-ups.

    Those are well past idiot marks IMHO anyway.
