In the levels dialog, choose the white point eyedropper. click in the lower right corner.

then you need to use the shadow/highlight dialog to bring the tones of the pistols back down.

This does a very good job.  The background is a little darker in the lower left, and if I force that to white then it begins to blow out the bullet highlights too much.  But pushing the lower right to white gives the best results with the easiest effort so far:
