I have recently purchased a very nice LCP, used and with the stainless steel slide. Nice pistol and it shoots well except that it hurts my pore old trigger finger after not too many shots.
The SSTL slide has a few fine scratches that run contrary to the factory “graining”. I am convinced that these scratches can be worked out using a sanding block and the appropriate grade of wet or dry paper. Question is, can anyone hazard a guess as to what grade of wet or dry would most closely match the factory graining?

scratch fix on stainless slide....

yessir quick fix on a buffing wheel BUT stay away from power tools...simply wrap a bit of fine emery or aluminum oxide paper around a flat file ( or a block of hardwood) and go to town, back and forth, the entire length,NO "short strokes" the finer the paper, the lighter the touch, the shinier the finish.................

as for the top or any matted surface, we use glass beads' ( used) and at low pressure, tape off the sides first !!!!!
