    Reply | Edit | Del All Anyway to repair/cover scratches on a Sig 226?
    Greetings all,
    Ive amassed a few scratches that have penetrated the black coating on the top of the slide on my Sig 226.

    I know that with use the weapon will not remain looking new forever but Im curious to know if their is a remedy for this short of sending the weapon back to Sig?

    thanks in advance

    Your option, of course, is to have the whole slide refinished. You could choose any number of finish options from a hard-chrome to a black coating like Birdsong.

    Im in law enforcement so turnaround time may prevent me from sending it out for a refinish.

    Sure. Just touch it up with some cold blue. If it's just a few scratches, then the three stick blue pens work well. My SiGs have had many a battle scar removed that way.
