    Aluminum anodizing touch-up?

    How do you touch up scratches in black aluminum anodizing on receivers? I assume there is some kind of paint or something out there.

    If it's truely annodized the best touch up is a sharpee marker. Anything else is a paint or powder coating that can be matched with touch up paint.

    I picked up a Birchwood Casey Super Black Gun Touch-up Pen (in flat black) for my black anodized aluminum flashlights and a a particular pocket knife or two I have. I can't say it is any more or less effective than a standard magic marker (it certainly looks and acts a lot like one), but it does an outstanding job. And although it can be rubbed off with some effort, it really holds up well!

    Thank you. I thought there was a product out there, now I know.

    If it's aluminum you can strip the old finish off and get an etching primer in black.These can be nasty but it is pretty close to permanent. If you want the most permanent finish you can locate your local metal finisher and typically have it anodized for about $30 or so.This is by far the best way to get a great long lasting finish that normal use or light impacts wont affect.

    I do not recall who makes it, but I have seen a product called "Aluma-Black" I believe it was that claimed to be made for touching up black aluminum finishes.

    I believe that is another Birchwood Casey product.
