    I have an SW99 with the black slide. I'm starting to notice a lot of marks on the upper part of my slide, where it is not covered by my safariland holster. They essentially look like pencil lines (same color, and they're squiggley). I've tried a little bit of cleaner, and oil, but neither worked. My first question ishow should I go about attempting toremove these marks? Secondly, would getting my gun coated with sort of parkerizing type process prevent this? OR would that be more trouble than it's worth?

    I'm at work so I wont be able to post pics until I get home.

    Blue-Pen. Not a blue pen. A Blue-Pen. From the gun store.

    Is the coating on that gun really bluing, though? I need to get a pen for my shotty, anyway.

    What about the parkerizing stuff? I wouldn't mind having my shotty and the slide of my SW99 (and maybe my P3AT) done, if it would actually make it tougher and less prone to scratching.

    Smile with pride that it's got some scuff marks and wear on it - shows you use it

    Agreed... daily carry pieces are gonna have some scratches... I know mine does (mainly from kydex and SERPAs). I don't know about having it coated with anything, as in time, it's gonna wear off again and scratch anyway, so it seems like a futile effort just to prolong the inevitable.

    While I agree that marks do add character, the scratches I have are VERY abundant and have happened in maybe a monthor so atmost. It seems that whatever coating is on my gun is very easily scratched. :?
