Howdy All -

Anyone know of a good cold blue or alternative for touching up minor nicks and scratches?

Ed I'm partial to the Birchwood Casey bluing pen for things like that. The use is very limited to small nicks and dings but works great for that and is very easy to use.

Same here, its easy to use and if the damage is very minor it will cover well.

I'll second the touch-up pen. Very handy and effective for small boo-boos.

I like the Oxpho blue better than anything else I've ever tried. However, I've never used the touch up pen mentioned.

I think I'll give both a try. I have a large collection of firearms and I want them all to look as pristine as possible since I shoot most of them. I'm not real big on "safe queens".

I have never used the pen, but I have used Birchwood Casey many times following the directions on the bottle. It is as good as any.

Oxpho for me. Clean and then alcohol the surface before application. Been doing this for over 20 years and it's really indistinguishable from factory when you prep the surface right.
