Cleaning up Classic Typhoon P1500


Last month Luke Swanson messaged me asking if I had any tips for getting staining off his Nickel plated Palmer’s Super Stocker.

I told Luke that in the past I had used a Nickel cleaning cloth that was yellow and seemed to easily wipe some staining right off the typhoons and other nickel plated palmers I had used it on. 

I didn’t know the name so I looked a little and found multiple references to Metal Glo Magic Cloth on several firearms sites. 

Seemed like the same product so I passed the info onto Luke and told him to use it at his own risk and test it on a small hidden portion (under the frame) or get a second opinion before he tried it.

Luke got back to me today saying it worked well and after wiping down his Super Stoker the yellow cloth had turned black and so far he couldn’t see any harmful effects.

I have used my cloth on many of my typhoons including the Typhoon in the attached pictures, P1500.  The cloth I used wiped staining right off and now after hearing from Luke I am going to order some more to clean a few of my other pumps.

Here is a link to Metal Glo Magic Cloth on ebay and I did read that you are NOT supposed to use this on blued steel since I think it will wipe the blue off.  Also please do your own research before trying this on your markers!

Has anyone else used this for cleaning nickel?  Have you had any problems?


Thanks Luke!
