    I would like to know if there is a way to "fill in" a relatively deep scratch in a nickel plated finish on a S&W Model 10-5 revolver without major refinishing? Similar to "touch up paint". I understand it won't be perfect, just a little better.

    Not that I'm aware of.

    The only thing I could suggest might be a small bottle of Testers "Chrome" Model Enamel from the hobby shop. Folks who build plastic model cars use it.

    I think that is a close as you can get.

    A spray could work if masking was done right. I'll check the metallic silver too. Thanks again.

    You might be able to use the spray with a sharp-tip model paint brush too.

    Just spray some in the lid and use the brush to touch up the scratch.

    Thanks again. I didn't think the scratches would bother me but they do. The rest of the finish is great.
