thinking of picking up an older 1954 Colt lightweight Commander.

The slide has some small marks/surface rust...

What would you guys suggest for cleaning it up, without polishing or removing any of the bluing ?

Thanks in advance.

Use brass wool, it's softer than steel and won't scratch.

I've never had any problems. Don't use anything more abrasive than 0000, keep the surface wet with oil and use light pressure. I've done this on everything from 1950's shotguns to newer production revolvers and the bluing is preserved.

ETA I've used brass and steel wool
