    I don't know how this happened because i absolutely baby my glock, but there are a few small dings and scratches where the finish is rubbed off. Is there anything i can buy to touch them up? Not that looks matter, i just don't want it to be vulnerable to rust.
    Thanks

    The tennifer coating that the slide is given makes it ridiculous impervious to rust and corrosion, one of of the greatest things about Glocks. Learn to love your scratches; I honestly had mine sand blasted to remove the "parkerized" look and have carried it for a year now without issue.

    I tried one on my Sig and the pens are garbage and a waste of money. I tried the Birchwood Casey on the alloy frame of an old P229. I personally don't mind scratches or holster wear. I take care of my guns, but if something happens it's no big deal.

    Think of it kind of a scar. Makes it personal. :cool:
