Gold trigger cure!



Log in to see fewer ads
I learned this evening that Eagle One aluminum polish (wadding) takes the gold color right off and buffs the trigger to a brilliant silver shine! It looks MUCH better.

Also wait till your shooting with sweaty hands and the trigger turns your finger black. The anodizing keeps your hands clean.

A black trigger finger is a small price to pay to have a nice looking gun. The gold trigger just looks so.... "cracker jacks".

Hmmm, I wish I read this before I spend an hour with a buffing pad and dremel two days ago. Although, on the trigger I got, there were some imperfections under the gold that took some time to get out too. Still it would have been a lot quicker your way ...

I've been practicing with the trigger I removed (in anticipation of the adjustable trigger that is on its way). I originally sanded the sides of the trigger with 600 and 1500 and followed it with the Eagle One polish wad, That is when I realized that it was just wiping the gold off the trigger. Even better is the fact that it is MUCH shinier (is that a word?) than the side of the trigger which I sanded.

I'm glad I practiced... might have the real thing today!

I've had it for years, but I think I picked it up at Autozone. Mine is in a shiny tin can. It is a chemical soaked cotton wadding.

:just checking Autozone.com:

I see that they have updated their product. It is now call Eagle One "Nano-Polish". I assume it is the same thing: http://www.autozone.com/selectedZip,.../selectZip.htm

I took mine a step further and bought some Birchwood-Casey "aluminum black", which is a chemical process (cold) for "blueing" aluminum. It works great on the trigger. I took all the gold off of the visible trigger guard area, smoothed the surface out (no more stock grooves in it), and "blacked it out".


Yeah - I'm not all BLING! about it!

Besides that, it doesn't reflect light like the stock triggers or the silver trigger would.
