I've just started on polishing my gp100 and wow, this is going to require more than I had originally thought. I'm committed to the project and took some pics, but you really can't see the improvement on the camera, even tho I can see a really nice improvement on it.
If I can figure out how to get a pic on here I'll post them on the progress.

I believe you. Polishing is arduous. My SP took some time... the GP must REALLY take some time! ;) I wish you luck and look forward to the finished product.

Yup. It a process. Mother's Mag and an old T-shirt and lots of time. May as well set up in front of the TV and while away the hours.

I've only just started on the barrel. This was the first going over. I'm thinking it will take quite a few more.

I bought mine expressly for hunting so I'm going to leave mine as is, but yours sure will look nice when you're done.

Nah, not really. I have enough polishing compound to keep me going for a very long time. If it gets one it'll be easy (at least I hope) to buff out.
One thing I've noticed is the turtle wax high mirror polish I bought puts a true mirror shine on it. I am very glad I bought it along with the mothers.
What I've been doing is using the mothers to get a really nice shine then using the turtle wax polish to get that truly mirror shine on it, and WOW does this combination work very well.
