Polish handgun: Sprayway Stainless Steel cleaner?

Is using the Sprayway Stainless Steel cleaner / polish on stainless steel handguns a good or bad idea? Not to clean bores, cylinders or internal parts but to polish the exterior after traditional cleaning with Hoppe's #9 and Ballistol and lubrication with gun oil and grease. Sprayway's stainless product rocks with stainless steel things like kitchen appliances. But I find no advice, good or bad, for its use to polish weapons. Thanks.

PS- the Sprayway glass-cleaner rocks too.

Failure

For a test, Sprayway Stainless Steel cleaner was applied to only the yoke of my S&W 629. Call the results a big fat failure. Attached is an image of this yoke and of an abrasion that bugs me. While this is a before the test image, the after the test (2 sprays and 2 buffings) image would be identical. No improvement at all.

Probably need to buff that out of your hand cannon's yoke...

Look more like scratches in the metal.
