    Question Covering up a very tiny scratch in revolver frame? Any ideas?

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to touch up a very, very minor scratch in the blackened finish of an aluminum revolver frame (Ruger LCR)?

    It really is quite tiny (less than a millimeter), and has no depth to it. The little speck of silver that shows through is more of an annoyance than anything else, but if there’s a way to touch it up, I would appreciate the advice. I tried a Sharpie Magic Marker, but that just came of with my regular cleaning.

    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Just a black Sharpie, after each cleaning...much cheaper than having it refinished.
    The Sharpie should get rid of that annoying little scratch between cleanings.
    If you like to spend money, have it refinished...but I wouldn't .

    you can try aluminum black. But I believe going a model epoxy paint route and use a needle to apply will be the permanent fix for you.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I had a small scratch on my S&WM&P9 and I used a small amount of "Blue Magic" metal polish I got from Auto Zone . It also works great on my auto wheels and will not scratch.

    Thanks all for the advice. I ended up using Birchwood Casey "Aluminum Black". Seems to have done the trick!

    Not direct ownership but I share it with a friend. In case you couldn't tell, it's a Cessna 172SP. Do you fly?

    Here are a few. My home airport, coming in for landing, and Cooperstown, NY.

    If you have the itch, grab the moment and get your license. It opens up a whole new world. If you have any questions about flying, please feel free to IM me!
