i recently got my stainless saddle ring from beartooth, i love it other than the fact that it doesnt quite match the reciever on my XLR. the ring/stud/screw are all polished, with the reciever being brushed. do you think a light wet sanding would do the trick for me? thanks in advance.

p.s. i loaded up some test loads the other day using IMR4198 and 405gr lasercast. hopefully i can get a range day this week, I'll bring along some match targets incase i get lucky with one of them

Try using one of those stiff Tuffy pads first, you're looking for a fine satin finish rather than a brushed finish. If that isn't the look you're after, try some 0000 stainless steel wool.

I would use a maroon colored industrial Scotch Brite pad.

This is what I use to remove scratches from my stainless Marlins and the safety replacements I used to make for fellow members here.

I used to make the stainless safety replacements and I would polish the exposed ends with the Scotch Brite mentioned to help match them up to the brushed finish that Marlin puts on their stainless receivers. A lot of times I included a piece of the Scotch Brite with the replacements so they could blend the ends to match the receivers.

If you don't have any I can send you some.......free of charge.....just PM me.
