gun polishing

Hey guys. I have an ARMY full metal 1911 MEU and I am planning to polish the outer barrel and hammer. I've seen photos in the galleries of guns polished to a gorgeous chrome-silver finish. How in the world do I do that?

I have no experience in this part and I don't want to end up with a bunch of nasty scratches on the gun. I can't seem to find some kind of a tutorial on this site.

Can someone give me pointers as to what type of sanding paper to buy and what to do after sanding, as well as what to watch out for?

Thanks a bundle!
