basically you just need a dremel and some polishing bits. Don't take too much alumnium off if you use something coarse... Steel wool seems to get messy, and it makes your fingers black

www.model98.net has a step-by-step walkthrough on how to do it. You just need a Dremel and something to polish with.

I did mine with steel wool aswell. It turned out good. But it really killed these weak arms of mine.

Useing steel wool or any other method of scraping the paint off can destroy your marker. The best way to go is to get a paint remover and use it on a rag with the areas you dont want to get covered up with painters tap. This will insure that you wont take too much metal off because you wont take any off at all.

If you use 0000 steel wool, it's pretty hard to remove much aluminum at all. It will clog, and you will end up using a ton of the stuff, plus the effort involved.

Polished internals are polishing or smoothing up the inside of your guns receiver. Smooth surfaces slide against other surfaces better then rough ones, so you are reducing friction. Don't try to remove all the rough areas in the receiver since that would be removing a tone of aluminum, and be pretty pointless anyway. You are just trying to eliminate the highest spots.

well tippmann advises not to polish the internals as the little detents hold the oil and that makes a smoother suface. so it is a waste of time according to them.

if it moves it becomes a target.

    Yeah but if your gun or anyones has black paint in it like my did from the factory that can't be good so and its not like we are smoothing all the dentents out.Just polishing want take them out unless you really grind down on the receivers.I'll take my chances on it being ok cause I know the detents where still there when I put it back together.
