My brother gives me crap about scratches, but they really piss me off.. Try Birchwood Casey Aluma black.. I used it to touch up a couple and it is a good match.. Bushmaster also has a touch up pen. I have used a sharpie on really small ones but a one incher might show if you touch up with a sharpie marker. I have been told to "vacuum seal it and hang it on a wall". (seriously) But if I spent that much on the thing Im going to keep it nice.. John

I don't know if his good god comment meant that you are a picky little snot and get over it and move on with your life or if good god means that you think a 1" scratch is little? It's huge. Nothing is going to look good unless you have the entire upper/lower refinished to match.

Its a bushmaster,aka a service rifle,a few scratches will add charachter,Besides if you have to use it for reel the enemy wont care about the scratches he will be more worried about the muzzle flashes coming his way,baby a colt it has more collector value,a bushy is a field rifle and cost wont change that fact,my preban is 11 years old 15k+ rounds out of it a few scratches here and there but it dont effect function.What are you going to do when you start getting finish wear on the inside of the magwell.

I usually just touch up scratches with a Sharpie, but I don't know if they come in purple. :)

mine is black?

Make a scratch on the other side, matching length and position. Call 'em "Racing Stripes" Seriously. I got all freaked out when I got my first ding on my AR, but fuck it. It's gonna get dinged. Now, I DID freak out when the thing fell outta the safe, and the barrel smashed down muzzle-first on the concrete. But I was more concerned with fucking up the front sight, or bending the barrel than looks. It's gonna get beat up.
