There is no touch up method for parkerizing except to use paint or some other coating. Parkerizing is a chemical conversion process that basically involves cooking the parts (to over simplify).

You can parkerize the entire firearm or parts yourself - the best resource I know for info is over at the Fal Files. Brownell's sell kits with all the stuff needed. There are many FAL builders that are doing this themselves. There are also many coating businesses that you can hire for the job.

You might try Brownell's Aluma-Hyde II if it is a small area.

I've always had terrific luck with some very old touch up blue that was in my grandfather's gun shop. Some of the gun paste bluing works pretty good too.

NOTE: this is only for on metal parts, not the anodized aluminum receivers as found on AR's.

Will that stuff work on Glock slides?

Im thinking a brown slide might look kinda cool.

I used it to do my Glock slide and it turned out very good.

Degrease , touch up with Brownells Cold Blue. Put a bunch of oil on the part and rub very lightly with 0000 steel wool till the finish matches.

That will also work to somewhat darken Parkerizing if needed.
