Oxidation On Nickel Finish

Every time I go out and shoot my nickel plated revolvers they tend to have a layer of oxidation that I cant seem to get off with Hoppes. At first I thought it may have been the finish wearing off of it. Kinda looks like silver when it starts to oxidize. Any ideas on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Oxidation On Nickel Finish

Try a lead removal cloth. Use it lightly and not in the barrel.

Re: Oxidation On Nickel Finish

Will the Filtz eat away at the finish over time if used often

Re: Oxidation On Nickel Finish

Flitz is a very fine abrasive. I would not recommend it for a finish. The lead removal cloth or compensator cleaner would be safer.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
