    I just received my new Borden drop port yesterday and when I opened up the box I immediately saw I forgot to have Jim polish it.
    Does anyone here polish actions and bolts or can you recommend someone.

    Action and bolt polishing are usually done in large polishing machines (vats) which hold ceramic polishing media. Dozens of actions done in a single process.

    Hand polishing can be done but paying by the hour for labor is the usual commitment.

    I'd call Jim and see if he can fit you back into his schedule for a reasonable small fee?

    I would bet Jim do it rather quickly with no charge for shipping or labor

    Send it back to Jim, I'm sure he'll take care of it.

    Same as others, return it and have it done there.

    I polish all my Panda actions with a polishing wheel on my bench grinder.
    You can purchase a kit on Amazon and do it yourself. Works great on golf clubs too.

    OK. I have to ask. What steps do you take in polishing an action at home?
