that's the problem with polished brass... it's a lot of maintnence to keep it looking good and can quickly look like **** if not taken care of.

Generally, uneven patina comes from the oils from your finger prints. Those will tarnish at a different rate then the non oiled parts. I like it when its a bit uneven, gives a very unique look.
I was thinking of plating my pgp2 and my KP, but I just love the old brass too much to cover it. Its like putting clothes on a hot naked woman, why bother.....

I found some info on stripping brass.

You grab an iron pot and fill it with vinigar then stick that on the stove.

Bring it to a boil then bring it down to a simmer and stick your brass parts in there for a little while.

The paint should start to peel then you can brush it off with a tooth brush.

And I found a way to get a patina quickly.

Get a bucket add a shelf about 6" off the bottom place your brass on there and then add 1" of amonia to the bottom in about 1~2 hours you should have a years worth of patina nice and even.

That is so very wrong...

Please do what they say and trade it. It almost hurts when a nicely preserved finish gets removed.

Also, the ONLY way to get a patina is stop polishing the gun and use it for a few years.

man, just buy one of those Piranha LB's for cheap that the guy in the Ebay section has been listing and hack that up. Buy some of Tymacneer's barrel stock and make it a tube feed. They're already stripped down so no one will hate you for it. Please don't strip the paint off that beauty.
