Can the wear shown by the yellow arrow be repaired or'touched up'?

I certainly don't want the gun refinished - just a cosmetic repair to the little area. It's not deep - just seems to have occured because of the missing crane detent and the cylinder moving back and forth.

Remove all gun cleaning products before cold bluing. The 91% rubbing alcohol works well for that purpose.

That's about all one could do...'Cold Blue' it... or, dab the spot with a dark Blue 'Sharpie'...


Or, repair the spot with a Dab of Weld, sculpt back to spec, and, re-Finish the entire Revolver.

Birchwood Casey makes a sharpie that is filled with cold blue. It works pretty good for small spots. You may have to give several coats. I apply, let it dry some then rub it out with a soft rag = Then repeat as necessary.

Brownell's 'Oxpho-Blue' and G96's cold blue will work well.

Just make certain you're working with a clean surface.
