    I have a few marks on a Sig Pistol with the Nitron finish (flat black) and was wondering if anyone has used the Birchwood Casey black repair pens successfully. The marks are just a few specks, and would blend in with a little gun oil.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    I used one of those pens and will never use one again ... the bank refused the check I wrote with it cause they said the ink was not right or something but I will never use one of them pens again to write a check with.

    Seriously though it is really no more than a Sharpie pen with a semi-permanent ink and should do just fine for a temporary covering but will most likely need to be done again and again over the life of the weapon.

    They contain thin black paint (flat or gloss) in a marker type pen body with a chisel felt tip. They're convenient, but don't work any better than black paint and a small brush would.

    I have used them on small spots, and they work moderately well. The main thing is to apply a thin coat, let it sit for a minute then rub lightly with 0000 steel wool. Repeat this process about 3-4 times. It will cover pretty well, but may need to be done later down the road again. Garrett
