Re: Slight pit removal.
The only way to remove shallow pitting is with a file and you have to know what you are doing or the gun will look worse than with the pits. If you want to get rid of them it should be filed and reblued. If the gun isn't very valuable I would not do it because it will be expensive.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
