Hello,

I had my Bushmaster AR15's barrel threaded and a flash hider installed. However, the gunsmith wasn't very careful in handling my rifle. I can see light scratch marks on the barrel, enough to see the shiny metal underneath. I didn't want to make a big stink about it, but I would like to know what I can do to just lightly touch these sratch marks up.

Many thanks in advance.

I just use flat black spray paint whenever my ARs get too shiney at the front sight tower(I like a nice black sight picture). Otherwise I don't bother.

Call Brownell's. They carry Birchwood Casey Super Black Instant Touch - up Pens in both flat black and gloss. I've used the flat black on my ArmaLite M-15 for scratches such as you describe, small but down to the metal shine, and unless I pointed them out and you examined them carefully, you'd probably miss them.

Thank you both for your replies. I'll look into them.

Can you give contact info for Brownell's? Also, does this flat black "pen" work on a parkerized finish? I assume yes, but just checking.
