    I refinished my new-to-me S&W m649-2

    I refinished my new-to-me S&W m649-2 last night. I ended up putting a pretty good shine on it. Not quite a mirror finish, but more reflective than the standard Smith finish. It took a little longer than I thought it would because I noticed some pitting under the original grips that needed to be removed. It took awhile, but I finally managed to get all the nicks off the body of the gun too.

    I finally have a place to put the Hogue lamo-camo grips I had on my departed m642.

    Here are a couple pics that show the side plate before and after the nick removal. Ignore the purple cast to the gun finish. it is shiny now and the room I took the pics in has purple walls.
