You could do a high polish and get some pearl grips and get a big brimmed hat and a few whoe's and start a new career! Actually, I want to eventually get a stainless and polish one for my "pimp" gun. I do have an XSE, but it's too pretty to polish. Maybe you could just sand your sides with 400 grit paper using a sanding block to get the semi polished or brushed look. Maybe a brass wire brush wheel on a bench grinder? Just be careful around your numbers and roll marks.
Does it have the Trophy brushed stainless finish? Or the matte stainless of the 1991s of norm? If you have it polished it won't be completely flat on flats. If that is of no concern, go for it. Have it done by a pro and it should be very good. Otherwise you get what you put into it. Like if you tried to buff it yourself you'll get a polished mountain. I don't think you would like a treated finish. Anymore then what you have.
The standard 1991A1 Stainless finish looks kind of like crap IMHO. You could have a good gunsmith polish or give it a nicer "brushing" of the flats and give the rounds a nice fine-satin bead blasting. That should come out looking something like this:
If you want it to have a nice, even "satin" silver look you could have the whole thing bead-blasted, kind of like the treatment Kimber gives their basic stainless pistols.
Since it's stainless it would be relatively inexpensive either way.
The bead-blasting sounds promising. I was also thinking of Bearcoat, maybe I'll give it a month and see if it "grows" on me.
Haven't even picked it up yet. Perhaps it will cloverleaf at 25 yards and then I'll forget all about the finish.
It also has Bomar adjustable sights. I understand this is a limited production run, right?
