How to get "brass marks" off of parkerized finish




I put 100 rounds through my RO the other day, and cant get the brass marks on the slide just rear of the ejection port to come off. Any suggestions?

I think I would try some bore cleaner, let it soak a bit and it should dissolve it.

Soak a cleaning patch in bore cleaner which contains a copper solvent (like Hoppes #9). Lay the wet patch on the offending area and let it soak without scrubbing. After an indeterminate time (trial and error), remove the wet patch--the brass kisses should wipe off without heavy scrubbing.

I use Break-Free Foaming Bore Cleaning Solvent. I just covered the spot with cleaning foam and let it sit for a few minutes. I like it since it is foam type cleaner, it stay where you put it on.
