    What care should be used on stainless steel.I just put claim on a used Smith & Wesson 686,(in layaway).Could a gunsmith take care of a few minor scratches.
    My first stainless firearm. :)

    Depending on how deep the scratches are, Flitz and a little rubbing may help.

    Toothpaste and a dremel will do it to.
