Mothers mag aluminum polish and a rag. You can also use a dremel with a buffing wheel if you have one.

Oh and a little buffing wheel and bristle wheel.
This should make Mike VERY happy.
He designs dental drills and other tools.
The Phantom is a hobby.

Yeah, Mike REALLY loves it when you polish the factory hard coating off of the internals. Just ask him about it.

If you stick to about a 400 or 600 grit and above and don't go past what is necessary, it takes off less than a quarter of the hard coat. You are accelerating the "break in" process. The fresh parts have plating over the machining marks. When you polish the ridges off, it doesn't penetrate through the plating (stay off the corners). This helps to get rid of the new phantom "zip" when you stroke the pump.

I'm sure Mike gets to hear plenty about rusty parts from extreme "polishing".

Yeah, from what I've heard from Mike, it seems that 99% of the people polishing internals remove the factory hard coat right off the bat by using a polishing wheel on a bench grinder, Dremel or go crazy with the old elbow grease. In the end it does more harm than good, and increases the chance of pitting, blems, rusting, etc. Mike insists that there is no need to polish internals, and I agree that polishing is more hype than anything else.

In over 20 years of owning a multitude of Phantoms the only polished internals that I have had were in used guns that I bought/traded. Other than a slightly smoother pump action (compared to a brand new gun), I have not witnessed any performance gains due to polishing internals compared to guns with non-polished internals. More importantly, the only time I've had to replace bolts and hammers were when they had been polished, and had began to rust/pit.

Be sure to keep those well oiled to avoid them rusting, nice work. They look great!
