They are not deep enough to scratch the finish....only mark it. I believe this occured as grip was swapped out and quad rail was put on. Anyome have any thoughts as to the best way to buff these marks out without removing finish?

I would just rub some oil on it and forget about it.

Excuse me--I think I'll get out of the way from what's about to happen.

CLP...and a nice super absorbent tampon.

Accept it as the first of many to come, it will happen and happen again if you use your weapon to any degree.

I just quit caring...

It gets thrown in the a trunk, thrown in the bed of a truck.. whatever

Most just rub off with oil, and the others that remain.... remain as a testament that you've used the thing...

I downloaded a few Army.mil high-res photos of soldiers and their M4s (M4 Pr0N a plenty) and put them up as desktop wallpaper to remind me of what a real rifle has to put up with and that a tiny scratch at home isn't anything. THeir rifles are practically silver.

Its completely ruined, you have no chance to salvage it. You should save the embarassment of owning a non-safe-queen rifle and sell it to me for 87 cents.

I'm looking forward to scratching my gun up

Try your mascara.

Sorry, couldn't resist....

Its a weapon not a fricken picasso.

ohhhhhh - my vagina hurts

Seriously - polish it up with a little CLP and take it back out to the range. Just rest comfortably in the fact that your rifle's "cherry has been popped!"

The first ding or scratch is always the worst. After the first one happens, each and every ding and scratch after that will be like a "badge of honor".

if you throw it across the street you wont have to worry about the little scratch

If you really want to be cool, just tie it behind your car and drive down a gravel road for .87 miles!

Just learn to live with it. If you want a purdy gun to look at, get one and keep it in the safe! But you also have to have one to shoot! Sounds like you need another AR! Any excuse for another one, right?

Black nail polish works fairly well. No, I'm not into "goth". I found that black nail polish works well on black cars with paint chips. Nail polish also works well as marking compounds for car repair/mods. As long as its prepped properly, black nail polish will take a decent amount of solvents to remove.

Are you also worried about how to get Brass marks of the DEFLECTOR?

Oh that's an easy fix, I just use WOLF steel cased ammo. Function follows form... You know, that ol' chestnut.

I just massage some CLP to get the brass markings off the deflector. As for the black coating that chips off the deflector, I leave it as is.

those scratches will be the least of your worries when the zombies come.

Scratches add character and frankly, I like the brass marks.

This is going to be ugly.

Please pass the popcorn.

You can usually find the AR-15 mark remover at your local gun store right next to the women's gun purses and Lady Smiths.

My dad's been getting into AR's and I know for sure one day when he does anything to warrant it, he'll scratch it. And he's going to ask me the same dang thing!!!! And all of these responses, among others are going to go through my head and I'm going to have a melt down!!!!!!!!!!!!! I won't be able to respond because I'll be too busy laughing.
