I have some hairline scratches on my Colt Commander's blued slide. It's purely cosmetic, but I'd like to get rid of them or lessen them if possible. Any way to do this?

Thanks.

No, not without damaging the bluing.

The bluing is a thin color layer on the steel, and ANY attempt to "fix" scratches or mars will do far more damage to the bluing.

This is one weakness of blued finishes.
The only "fix" is to have it totally refinished.
