Scratches and use marks add character.



Without refinishing, I think scratches would be hard to remove from the melonite finish, and you might make it look worse.

I have the same wear marks from my blackhawk. What did you do to solve the issue?

Easiest solution - hard chrome the slide - short of U scratching the gun w/ another metal object - no more scratches ever
- I hard chromed 3 slides - the 1st because of holster wear on a new gun w/i 2 weeks. Now, after about 10 months of holstering, not even a mark on it




My SW99 has a melonite finish, and I had it hard chromed. No more issues now

I also just purchased a M&P 40 and scratched the outside of the frame a bit cleaning it before its first use. Does your post mean S&W will touch up for $90? Also, did you learn any more about products that might clear this up?



Thanx!

If the frame is scratched, I am not sure if anything can fix it short of a replacement. In my opinion, shoot the pistol and move on. In time, every weapon will show wear.

It's actually the slide, but yeah, I think you're right. I have been a Glock man until I started researching M&P's. As this is my first one I guess I'm being a little "over-protective". Can't wait to get out and put a few rounds in it this weekend!!!

Kinda like gettin' that first scratch on a new vehicle...sucks. But, now that it's been done, no more worries. You just gotta remember that these guns are not gonna be collectibles and who cares if it has a few scratches. I have a few PC guns where I've managed to scratch them and about went through the roof but, they're still just shooters when it comes down to it.

I have fixed small marks and scratches in the slide with Birchwood/Casey Permablue -- a cold blue solution. Follow the directions. You dab some on with a paper towel, let it sit a minute, then wipe it off with a damp cloth. Works great for me. Good luck.
