S&W 500 care

#1

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 ?

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.

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 :frowning: but I found another company that does tho.

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!

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.
