Seriously, that still needs a lot of work before it can be sent off to ano. It isn't even to the finishing stage yet. Get some rough sand paper and work your way up to at least 1000. Wet sand, steel wool and Mothers Mag polish for a mirror shine. Skip the polish if you're anodizing it.

I *think* steel wool can contaminate the aluminum and make it so the anodizing will be garbage.

I'm not sure. I've only ever done it to aluminum that I was leaving raw. Skip that too then, unless you're sure.

The only other person besides you to comment on using steel wool said that it would cause scratches (guess what sanding is?), and cause a poor finish, not that it contaminates anything, including the "thread", whatever in the hell that is. And I'd be interested in hearing the how and why of it. There's no conceivable reason why steel wool would "contaminate" aluminum, but tiny grains of aluminum oxide or silicon carbide in sandpaper wouldn't. Reading here: http://asuwlink.uwyo.edu/~metal/anodizing.html and here: http://www.focuser.com/atm/anodize/anodize.html , steel wool is actually recommended for finishing raw aluminum before it is anodized or re-anodized. So I'm not entirely sold on the "steel wool contaminates aluminum" thing. The point is somewhat moot anyway, because very fine steel wool is used at the finishing stage, and the OP has got about a week worth of rough sanding and smoothing before he'd want to think about using it anyway.

At imperial i used to use steel wool with soap and warm water. It atucally took alot of the left over polish compound and finger prints off. So id say use it.

The only thing that would not be recomended is sand blasting. Bead blasting would help tho.

Its his gun. Let him do with it what he will.

I saw somone sand blast an entire dm5. including the internals. So why dont you all go flame somone who really ruined a fine working gun..

Just my two cents.

Im not really sure nor do i care but i know for experience. It makes it the anodizing super splotchy and weird. I did it to a old timmy i had before i annoed it.

lol blind folded? Those were basic cuts I needed to make then clean everything up. I had it just about done but the dremel got stuck in a divot.

Needless to say there is a hole. I am not very happy right now.
