I want to remove some light scratches from the yoke. Is it brushed aluminum? Anyone found a good way to do this? Steel wool? Wet/dry sandpaper? I could not find a post about this subject?

Yes, its aluminum or an aluminum alloy.
I use Mothers Mag polish

to remove oxidization from brass and copper flash contacts but I do not know if it will remove the scratches from the rails.
