    well i just had my wife bring home some copper cleaning pads from walmart, and i had just finished removing the speckling of rust from my 10/22. i was tightening down the scope rings back onto the rail and like a newb the screwdriver slipped leaving a nice scratch on the barrel.. it really is not too bad about 3/4 of an inch i would say, and its under the scope but i know its there and its kinda bothering me.... lesson learned im just glad it wasnt on a more expensive gun.... i just searched but didnt come up with much.. touching up with a sharpie, or a reblueing touch up kit...is that my only options?

    Everything you ever wanted to know about cold bluing.

    In your case, you might just want to buy a touch up pen.

    I'd leave it, as a reminder to be more careful next time.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm serious. I knicked the lower on one of my ARs staking the castle nut, haven't touched it up. Dont plan to either. I do look at it before I stake another one though...
