Hello,

I got my FSB replaced and the pins are shiny. I wanted to blacken them to match the FSB. I don't think AlumaBlack will work (hence the name). I was thinking about using a sharpie, but didn't want to contaminate the surface in case there's something more permanent.

Thanks,
BoB

I use Sharpie on "my" stuff.

Rubbing alcohol will remove it.

Sharpie comes off with alcohol; go for it.

If you clean and degrease the pins, this Birchwood Casey Presto Blue Pen works pretty good for touch up work. Sometimes I have to hit it, let it dry, wipe it off with a clean cloth and hit it again for a good finish.

Brownells has a nice selection of items for this. A bottle lasts a mighty long time, and comes in handy if you own firearms, or when your friends come over with theirs.
