I just got a springfield Px9707L yesterday, and noticed right away that the top of the barrel, where S.A. 45 AUTO is stamped on polished steel, there are what looks like machine marks. They aren't deep, but they are obvious. I don't have any experience with 1911's, but I took the barrel out, and tried polishing compound to buff out the marks, but it didn't work. any advice on putting a better finish on the area around it that's visible on the top?

Next I noticed there were some marks on the finish. Not scratches, just handling marks that don't rub off. Any suggestions on how to remove them?

Last for now, I noticed some sharp edges. Can I bevel them with a fine file? Just slightly to reduce the cutting potential, or is that supposed to be like that?

Thanks for the help, Jeff
