    Where do you find touch-up paint, or similar to touch up a couple of marks on our adj. ribs??? I have checked two local hardware stores, as a gunsmith told me "they" will have it, but nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,........Rob G.

    Mine is painted with black epoxy paint. Shouldn't be hard to find.

    If the marks aren't too bad, try a black magic marker.

    I believe Birchwood also makes a'pen' that is for touching up anodized aluminum. I bought some once at a Dunham's Sporting goods and I believe I have seen it at Dick's. Even Mayo Mart might have it. Bill

    I wouldn't expect too much out of the Birchwood Casey product.

    I've used Birchwood Casey Aluminum Black before.

    It actually works pretty well.

    I have a touch-up pen from Birchwood/Casey that does a nice job. It's also very easy to use and dries pretty quickly.
