I was wondering if you were to polish the exterior of your barrel if it would make the slide smoother.
Generally, no. Lockup is dependant upon the Locking Lugs and Slide/Barrel Muzzle Fit. Removing too much metal can be too easily done unless you are experienced in Fitting parts. It is better to just let the mating surfaces wear in with regular use along with proper lubrication.

I would not mess with the barrel crown unless there are known accuracy issues, then a re-crown is in order, and then should be done with the proper tooling. I use a round headed brass bolt, whose head diameter is a little bigger than the O.D. of the barrel, chucked in a variable speed drill, and Polishing Compound.
