I wanted to ask if there is any benefit in polishing the outside of the barrel of my PT1911? Would I wreck the gun if I put a good polish in it? Would it affect performance?

I already have... no difference, except that the slide seems to be a bit "slicker" which might be the lack of friction. I got a very nice "glass" finish on the chamber where it shows through the ejection port, but didn't try to get that high a shine... especially where the ridge at the muzzle locks up with the bushing. Got it nice and shiny, but in truth the barrel isn't seen that often except when it is locked back.

Thanks Cimarron! I think I will polish it up once it comes in from the company finishing the slide and frame on Friday.
