    Birchwood-Casey has a felt tip pen that works for small touch-ups. I have used it on a gun or two. It looks like a pen that is used for furniture touch ups. Bulge.

    Use cold bluing solution. First clean off the oil with Acetone. Then take a Q-Tip and get some on the tip and rub it on the bare metal until it is dark enough. It also helps to heat the metal a little with a hair dryer, just before you apply the bluing solution. Birchwood-Casey and Oxpho-Blue from Brownell's work best. The rib you would have to use the paint, or pen mentioned above. Jon
