    Probably not helpful to you, but I always used a magic-marker to kill the shine.

    I usually do that on my pivot and takedown pins. I ordered that Birchwood Casey pin though, will let ya know how it works out.

    I'm intersted to see how the pen works. I was looking at getting some Aluma Black but that looks like it might be a better solution for small nicks and scratches. I like keeping my stuff purty.

    So works fairly well. If it's a larger spot you can still tell where you painted if you're really paying attention. On small spots you can't tell. I touched up a spot on my rail that got bumped during shipping, and I can't even find where it was originally. There's also a gloss version, but I don't think that'd work.

    My only suggestion is that the first time you use the pen don't touch mark on your rifle. When the paint goes to the tip the first time it's really excessive, just touch it to some paper or something then put it up and come back to it the next day. Otherwise, it'll be hard to work with to get fine cover. If you $#@! up, take some gun cleaner and wipe it off quickly before it dries. I gave it an hour or two to cure before putting it in the case, that's about it.
