Just picked up a sweet 1911 Colt Officer's Model. It is nickle plated and has a few places on the slide with mars. Does anyone know of a way to refinish a nickle plated gun without stripping it to bare metal?

There are some gun smiths in the area, I would give them a call. If they con not help they can led you in the right direction.
What type of finish were you wanting? The answer really depends on the type of re-finish.
I'm really open to suggestions. I guess the easiest would be to blast it and make a matte surface. That would be acceptable. As a last resort blast the affected surfaces and have someone apply one of the new baking enamels.
Drop by my shop and we can discuss your options. PM me if you need the address or directions.
Did what I should have done in the first place. Pulled a grip off and did a little surgery on the frame where it would never show. Pistol is really stainless!!! Now I know how to clean it up...
