    My Vertec is developing some scratches on the front and rear of the barrel. Is there any way to touch these up? :confused:

    Are they wear marks from where the slide touches the barrel in recoil or have you skun it up against a foreign object?

    If they are operating wear marks, no point in touching them up, you will get them back whenever you shoot the gun.

    If they are mars, I think Bruniton is a coating and about all you can do is paint them with a magic marker. Birchwood Casey sells one that is supposed to cover up marks on guns. Cold blue would color the steel but I don't know how it would blend.

    Yeah, they're wear marks so I guess it wouldn't do much good to touch them up. They're hid from view until the gun's at slide lock and they're not showing signs of rust so I guess I'll let it go for now. I guess it adds character!

    that's just the way it is unless you want to whip out that touchup pen everytime you shoot the gun
