Cool Bright Stainless Kimber Stainless Target II

I've been seeing a lot of Kimbers lately. A couple of Raptor II's, an Ultra Carry II (which I'll post soon), and this Stainless Target II. I haven't fired a Kimber personally, but they sure do look and feel nice!

I have one of those. It's a fine shooter. Of course, the one you're holding is a lot prettier than mine.

I'm wondering, can a gun with that level of polish be blued? Would the result be a "high polish blue" or is that something else?

Thanks for sharing your experience with the Kimber. Yes, as far as I know, high polish blued guns are polished to this extent and then blued, resulting in the mirrored blue finish. The only difference is that blued guns are carbon steel, not stainless.
