If you scrub the mark until it's gone you will wind up with a finish that shows where you scrubbed.

Leave it there and wear it as a badge of courage! Be glad its a small fault....it could be worse.

To fix gun blemishes you must refinish them. That will cost you a minimum of $250 including shipping and labor.

Its a gun for Christ's sake. If you take a safe queen out of the safe.....it's no longer a safe queen.

(Riveted pant pockets with a sports coat? You deserve to scratch your gun.)

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I have used a pencil eraser on some brass marks with good results.
But, IMO, a pristine SD firearm is a sign that could be read that the owner does not carry or practice much. I want a BG to see a well used weapon so he believes that I may know what I doing.

Keep the mark and add more.
