[email protected] does jeweling on firearms. I kind of like the way it looks on the barrel hammer and trigger of a 1911. Does anyone know if doing this will in any way affect the functioning of my pistol (Kimber stainless gold match). Naturaly the web site says it will make the gun work better.

The jeweling process is also a polishing process. It will smooth things up quite a bit, and it is alleged that it helps to hold the lube thus requiring less lube. I have had done on a rifle bolt, and on one SW hammer and trigger.

Polishing, Scratching it depends on how you look at it. I don't beleive you would have any adverse affects on your pistol if done properly. It can be done with either a small wire brush dipped in a jewelers rouge similar to toothpaste,I have used a Cratex cylinder in a drill press. I also have a friend who uses a wooden rod dipped in toothpaste. To each his own poison, All can be purchased from Brownells.
