    S&W 442 - Finish?

    I just picked up my first J frame - a lightly used 442 with no lock. My local gun/pawn store had it coming off pawn and knew I had been looking. Picked it up for a great price.
    Its in very good shape, been fired little and the spent cartridge tag shows 5/28/09.

    The previous owner had painted orange reference points to either side of the rear sight. Not exactly well done or will they be of any use. There is also a very small nick on the top of the barrel where the silver finish is showing. I want to remove the orange without damage to the finish and simply touch up the nick with some black treatment. What would you all recommend I use for this?

    Alcohol, Gun Scrubber, or paint thinner.
