Sorry I beg to differ. I have polished several guns in the past that were made from pot metal. With a bit of elbow grease I was able to get a mirror finish on pot metal parts.

The finish on those guns have neither faded or dulled to my knowledge. Just as long as you give a polished gun a quick wipe down with a paper towel after handling them to wipe off fingerprints they wont oxidize for a long time.
