I was looking around and trying to find the best method to do maintenance on a Smith & Wesson 500 it’s still obviously and have to keep polish for me I use Magnum polish but I was wondering other than doing the hand and cloth My Fit do anyone here use a buffer will to bring out the shine also let anyone know who does a restoration prices to remove the cylinder line that comes with wear and tear. The last thing I can think of right now is who does Machining work to make the cylinder be acceptable for Moon clips ?
The stuff I use is call flitz I think.
Have you thought about having Smith & Wesson doing the work you want done? They may charge more, but would (probably, at least), do it right.
How many rounds do you think you have shot thru your S&W 500?
Flitz works very well
And I’d send it back to smith to have the work done unless you know a compentent pistol smith
That has worked in them before
Smith has great customer service
I think i have about 300+ rounds through it.
I’ve thought about sending it back to them. haven’t seen any work they offer to do a new coat and milling.
Might be worth a phone call to them to see if they would be willing to do what you need done.
Good luck, either way.
thank you I’ll check them out
MikeBlack47, give TK customs a look see, they may be able to help you out with the machine for your moon clips.
I looked into them and they do not make moon clips for the 500 magnum but I found another company that does tho.
This is a very late reply but I tried calling them a few times. but they won’t even answers the custom workshop phone.
Hmm, that’s odd. What about having your local gun store call them, especially the gunsmiths there at your local gun store? They may have a different number to call and get better service
Either way, good luck!
Nice hog leg.
Well I finally got through to CS. Can’t do anything for it. just have to keep it clean and keep a eye out for my local gunsmith thats not retiring to do work on my 500. Fun fact S&W does not do any custom work for the 500.
