Have any of you folks used a polishing product called FLITZ? Is it safe to use on firearms? My 1911 is nickel plated and I want to try FLITZ to put a little more shine on the old boy. Thanks in advance.

OK, thanks for the heads up, guys. I cleaned the old gun with FLITZ. I bought this RIA 1911 last summer. Found it at the LGS which is a pawn shop. It didn't appear to have had many rounds through it and the fit was tight. It was grungy, though. Finally got a shine on it! Here is how it looks now: Image

Turned out nice Biff. Do you have a "before" pic?

The first pic is how it looked when I first bought it. I'd just wiped it down a bit with some Ed's Red and it wasn't very clean or shiny. The second pic is after some further cleaning using Ed's Red and 0000 steel wool. Better, but still not much shine on that nickel finish. (I'd added some cocobolo grips, too).

I use it in my brass tumbling media. Along with interspersed doses of Turtle Wax metal and chrome polish it does a great job!
