    They make a black "sharpie" just for guns. It does really well and holds up to cleaning but not forever. Easy enough to hit the parts again.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I'll probably go with one of the Birchwood products. I actually hit the parts with black nail polish last night. I'll most likely remove it though.

    Well, I'm fortunate enough that I can afford one, but I would never pay retail for one. I got mine when they first came out about 20 years ago when I was in college, and my buddy who worked at a golf shop got it for me at a very handsome discount. Back then, there were only a few models and they only came in the gun blue finish. I have the original (single line) Catalina...doubt I'll ever replace it.

    A polishing wheel on a dremel with rouge will make a very nice finish. Example: All of the polished parts had a black finish...

    That's pretty. I might go that route.

    The parts are hard so they won't rust.

    Polish out all the metal surfaces as bright as you can get them. Now look up some place in your area that does Black oxide and take it to them. When you get it back it should look like Black chrome as long as you bid a good job polishing the metal surfaces to a bright finish.
    Hope this helps.

    What are they worth? I think I have one I got for some many frequent flier miles about that many years ago. It has never been used and it is a lefty. Now if my wife didn't throw it out.

    Found it, it is a Calloway Bobby Jones. Never been used.

    4 Dead in Benghazi while Cowards watched Overhead. 4 Dead in Benghazi while the Media hid. 4 Dead Heroes who died for those who do not care. 4 Dead in Benghazi and who will pay. 4 Dead in Benghazi and Hilliary screams, "What does it matter?" while the cowards rule.

    I went to see the Movie "13 Hours" and you should too. They died and Hilliary lied. No protests, no video, just an Al Qaida attack.
