On my recent build, my FH got scratched down to the bare metal (small scratch) and I was wondering if anyone has any pointers on how to touch it up and re-coat it. The scratch is hardly noticable, however it is the principle of having a brand new rifle with a small scratch. Does Brownells have anything that would work? I remember reading of some stuff that people are using that has to get baked on, but I can't remember the name of this stuff. Any help, suggestions or comments that you guys may have would be greatly appreciated. If it matters, the FH is made by Yankee Hill and it is the one that is used to bring a 14.5 barrell to 16 inches. Also, what is used when a FH is pinned and soldered on to re-coat it?

If it really bothers you get some Cold Bluing from WalMart and touch it up. But let me warn you……she won’t stay new looking forever!

Tahnks, I'll give that a try. I know it won't stay new looking forever, I actually look forward to breaking it in and putting some wear on it. It's just that right after getting it put together, this happens and it just makes me mad. Thanks again.

Brownells 44/40 works great. I used it on my Colt Hbar barrel and FH. You must degrease 1st. Also use Birchwood Casey Alumin Black on the upper and lower for small touch ups. Good Luck
