How would one go about doing this? I am asking because I recently purchased a Kimber Tactical Custom II (click) , and since I purcased it with Law Enforcement in mind, I expect to see some wear on the gun.

So, I need to know if and how I can touch up the surfaces and do it in a manner that can stand up to the heat and solvents used on and in guns. If I can't just touch the scratches and feed ramp from wear of the finish, do I need to re-anodizie the entire frame?

Where would I get the kits for doing this.

Thanks,
Wes

Edit: The frame is made of 7075-T7 aluminum and is factory finished in a Gray Anodize finish.

Anyone know what kimber charges to refinish a frame if you strip it down and send it to them?

Shoot the gun....don't make it a safe queen. It's a tool, not a shrine to worship. If it has an alloy frame, Birchwood Casey makes a touch-up called Alluminum Black. That should hide most of your scratches.

Keep it cleaned and oiled and your Kimber will never let you down. I've put 5,000 rounds through mine without a burp.
