    Touching up an alloy frame?

    Hi all whats the best thing to use to touch up my colt cobra? I know it can't be re blued because of it's alloy frame,but is there anything that I can use to touch up some areas of ware to the finish?

    I've read about things like cold blue and such but don't know if they are safe for use on an alloy frame or if it will just flake off.
    so is there anything you guys know of that I can use for this? thanks

    I’ll put my vote in also, excellent product. Used it to touch up some scratches on an 870 receiver, did a great job.

    I'll check and see or just give bornwells a call and this won't hurt the aluminum alloy at all correct?

    Nope, that's what it is made for.

    Ditto the Aluminum Black
    Call Brownell's
    When you call them to order - request a catalog.

    It is like a gun Bible and you'll be glad that you requested one.
