My S & W 915 9mm, somewhere already were worn away. I don’t want to strip the old paint off and cerakote it. Can I just buy a touch-up gun blue such as “ super gun blue” from Dick’s to put there or it is a useless repair because the "blue" will lost again pretty soon . I think 915 slide made by steel .

I already attached two pictures in this topic*" Is S & W 915 9mm worth to buy?"

so I was not allowed to attached again

Thanks!

Smith & Wesson will reanodize the frame for $150.

If you change the name of the pic, it'll allow you to attach.

I did, but the system still found I already attached these pictures. I still
don't understand how it can be found.

Mmmmm?

Did you buy it to fondle & look at?

Or to carry in a holster & use it?

If the latter?
Any money spent on a new finish is money wasted because it will then be a re-finished gun of less value with the same wear pattern on the new finish.

Fuggedaboutit!!
Find something more important to worry about.

It looks fine to me. No need to refinish a pistol over a scratch or two, IMO.

I tried “super gun blue” this afternoon. I felt the result was not too good because I only can put “blue” in a very small area , if I put more bigger, it will be uneven color , just like I put some black paint there. I gave up to continue. Now I admit I shouldn't do that. Worn is pretty normal.

"Honest" wear, gives the gun character. You do not need to reblue it your intent is to carry/shoot the gun.

If this were a Colt 1911 or a Browning Hi Power, I still would not refinish. It is what it is. Just care for it and prevent rust.

This condition also allows more leeway in spinning 'war stories'. LOL
