Does anyone know where you can buy ultra fine Scote Brite used to remove small scatches from a SS barrel??

Tried Home Depot/Lowes and asked at Gun Shop...no success as of yet??

Many thanks!

Surprised Lowes or Home Depot didn't have any. Did you look in the paint department?

Maybe try a real hardware store or a paint supply store.

I must tell you that I did not look in the paint department.......I went to the cleaning area where they had other Scotch Brite products. Thanks for the thought...that I should have thought of myself.. :oops:

If you mean the inside of the barrel, Brownells sells this:

I'm asking about outside of the barrel...actually I had asked Ruger what they used and they recommended the Scotch Brite and to make sure that you also rub in the same direction as the finishing. A gun shop also said to use a little oil with the scotch brite.

Grocery stores usually have scotch brite pads if you haven't found any yet. A while back I was looking for a copper scouring pad. Looked at Home Depot, Lowes, Hardware store etc. I found them at the local grocery store.

Is this stainless a satin finish, or is it polished bright?

If it's satin (brushed look), try the maroon, or grey pads and go lightly with the "grain".

Most automotive, or industrial supply stores should have them, or hardware stores by the sandpaper products as mentioned above.
