I need some advice on repairing a scratch on the top of my 1911 Garrison. It has the factory hot salt bluing, the top is a satin finish. Must have scratched it placing it in the safe somehow. My holster is leather and very well maintained. Scratch is about an inch long, and pretty fine.
More like a scuff. I'll replace the slide if I have to.

Just keep shooting it cuz -- it just adds the air of "I been there and done that".

Kidding aside, try a baking soda / water rub or toothpaste and try to remove as much damage as possible. Then fill in the rest of the damage with a Sharpie -- it won't hurt it.
Baking soda is abrasive. I'm thinking it will remove more of the finish.
I like to keep my firearms as pristine as I can. I have a few custom built striker fired guns that have a DLC coated slide.
This stuff is extremely durable. More so than anything else I've used. I like the factory finish, but I don't think I can duplicate it with DLC. Since this gun is now my EDC, I may have to go that route if there isn't an option to restore the factory finish.
