Hello Gatorbait
I use nothing But RENAISSANCE Products on my Guns. They sell a product called Pre-Lim that brings out the Bluing or nickel on any handgun when Polished with it. It does Not Harm the bluing Like Flitz or other Metal Polish's can, it only enhances it. When I get Done with that, I use Their Synthetic Wax product. This wax works like no other I have tried and even protects the cylinder face when enough applications are applied by Providing a Barrier between the Metal and the Burned Powder, Which can make cleaning them back up with Pre-Lim a breeze. It also lays a Protective covering to keep away those unsightly Finger Prints. I have not Oiled the exterior of any of my Handguns since using this product and Rust is a thing of The Past. Here is a Link to the Products that are shipped in from England and this is the main supplier that sells to Brownells and Midway..His name is Dennis and he is a Nice guy to deal with. he will ship it to your door and after using it once and see what a difference it can make you will be Hooked for life and only use it there after making the Other Products Inferior to this..Check out how many Historical places use this product all the time to protect Their Valuables, it is simply amazing...

Hi Hammer,

I suspected that was what you were using. I have been using their wax all summer and fingerprints wipe off
in a second with a micro fiber towel. I will try their Pre-Lim. Glad to hear of the protection it is giving your
guns, it really seems to seal them against the environment and that is critical anywhere.
Certainly there is nothing that makes my guns look better.

Thanks,

Gator

Hello Win 71 and GatorBait
I must tell you I have Tried all The Products Offered out there to make my Guns stand Tall, and Rennisnace is The Top Product to use. The Pre-Lim will actually Lift Rust particles off Bluing Not Detectible with The Naked Eye ! It is That Good Guys, and to Buy any other Products available would Only Be Flushing your Hard Earned Money Straight down the Toilet. When you first apply Pre-Lim and rub it into a Blued finish don't be Bothered if the cleaning Rag appears to be orange or Brown, that is just Rust leaving your Keep sake. Finish it off with a Couple coats of Wax made by the same company and You Too will have Gorgeous Looking Handguns. Thanks for you Compliments they are appreciated, But it starts with a Good Bluing Job and ends with High Quality Products Like Rennisance sells to make them Glisten... Hammerdown

Hello
Here is a model 17-2 K-22 Masterpiece I had Nickel plated. This shows you what Rennisance can do for Nickel finish's as well.. The First Photo is in Daylight and the Next Three are at Night to show the Mirror shine left by Rennisance. Hammerdown

Hammerdown.... a question concerning routine cleaning after shooting and the Pre-Lim and the Renaissance Wax.

What do you suggest using for the clean up and bore/chamber that would not have a negative effect on the wax or Pre-Lim? Also, how often do you use the Pre-Lim for cleaning versus something else?

Hello
It all depends on what Bullets you are using and how Hot the Load is. I Primarilly use Copper Jacketed Bullets in all my Calibers as I am not into cleaning up the Lead mess left behind by Lead Bullets. Most of my Target Loads are slower hence Less Copper Fouling. When I do swab the bore I use a Limited amount of Hoppes Number Nine. I am carefull as to Not slop it on and if I feel it will dribble down the Outside of a barrel or into the cylinder window I simply place a cleaning rag to catch it. I also use Bronze cleaning brush's and when they get wore out, I place some strands of Copper Chore Boy brillo Pads around the bristles. This will not harm your bore, and is Lightning Fast on getting leading or Copper fouling out of the bore and cylinder. I usually take Pre-Lim to the Cylinder window area, around the forcing cone and above it, along with the face of the cylinder each time I am done firing the weapon. This keeps them squeaky clean and makes for a much faster clean up if done every time I am done firing them. Once all the Fouling and Burnt Powder is cleaned off the weapon with Pre-Lim I simply wax just the areas effected. It is quick and easy and will take much less time if you do it every time you are done with a Gun rather than letting it build up.. . Hammerdown

I don't know how I missed this thread but thanks for the tips Hammerdown, I already use the Renaissance Wax, sounds like I just need to get some Pre-Lim.

Hammmer Down.... Thanks for the great tips and instructions.

I've been away dealing with some medical necessities. But I'm back and I now have some Renaissance Wax plus Pre-Lim on order from Dennis.

I'd love to achieve the results that you've obtained with your stable of beauties.
