I know several pins have gun handles...My T2 handle is pretty rough. Almost feels like the metal is pitted and will scratch your hand where you grab it.

Best ways to clean them up? Tumbler? steel wool? Its a players condition game we are selling so doubt I want to spend a bunch plating it but want it smooth and look decent.

If it's a players game and you're not worried about chrome, you can sandblast and clearcoat it. Here's my LW3 gun. Someone painted it with black paint that chipped and flaked. I took it to my work, sandblasted it and then added about 5 coats of clear. Super smooth and looks very presentable.

If u can get it smooth, you could vinyl.wrap it.

Here are my demolition man handles:

Before was worn and I used some $10/roll aliexpress chrome wrap and an hr of time.
I did use another chrome wrap before and it was too thick to be applied around contours... so a thinner chrome can even get around the gun handle without much heat.

Not what you are looking but thought the topic would be worth the memoriam.
Mike Chestnut will be remembered as the gun handle master.
