I just finished polishing, and If i may say...it worked great.

Absolutely perfect directions.
Great upgrade for your gun too. Much smoother, and less recoil.

What is the difference between the two? would it be better to use the sand paper one?

Just finished mine up tonight, thanks for the excellent tips. One thing I'd possibly add is to give the frame a good buff with a quality metal polisher. I know other's recommend Mother's Mag & Aluminum Polish ( it's designed for car rims, ) but I just found some generic polish at the Target. Just check before you buy it, some aren't designed for certain metals. I saw and felt a big difference between just buffing and totally polishing. Tomorrow I'll fire off a few rounds to see how it went, I think neighbors will get a touch angry if I pop off shots at 2:00 AM.

How about emry cloth instead of sandpaper ? emry is deisgned for metal and can come in some crazy high grit sizes.

As long as it's a somewhat fine (but not too fine) grit, you'll be okay. You generally want to stay away from power tools (like Dremels), as these can damage the actual receiver, instead of just removing the overspray.

Fine steel wool and a dremel with felt polishing pads with red rouge (jeweler's polish), white rouge [slightly grittier, nothing you can really tell by your fingers, its meant for polishing brass, copper and aluminum to mirror finish] will also work. just used the steel wool to get off most of the paint spay then went to work with the dremel. takes a while because red rouge is meant for gold and silver, but the results are...well it looks like a mirror. i dont mean just shiny, i mean i could see my self in the reflection just as well as my bathroom mirror.

I've never polished the internals of my A5, I've owned it for about 8 months now, should I polish it and how often should I polish the internals?

Once should do it, just wipe'em out real good whenever you disassemble it and check for wear or striations, then just touch them up with some 00 steel wool if needed

Would the hard brillo-ish side of a sponge work? Like the green side of a Scotch-Brite hard scrubbing sponge?

O yeah do you have to liek basically soak it in warmwater cause i got a factory installed response trigger and to disconnect it i would break the seal and need sealant which I don't have. Could I just take everything out of the parrts I would polish and instead of putting in warm water just us a wet paper towel? Cause I don't want to get the response trigger stuff dirty.
