Small scratches fix on stainless slide?

Being very careful, I dinged up the front of my slide where the front sight is. It's small but annoying. Is there a way to touch up the finish on the matte stainless slide? It's a really small area, but I don't, want to make it worse trying stuff.

Thanks.

Nevermind, green scotch bright in the kitchen took it right off. God I love these guns. You can repair the matte finish with a friggin' scotch bright. How cool is that?

B4 and After pics

Oh yeah, love to see those myself.

Could save a lot of money in a refinish or cerakote finish.

Depending on the amount and location of damage, you can also use the grey and/or red Scotch Brite pads as well.

I use white and gray Scotch-Brite with a tiny bit of oil. Very light pressure, rubbing in one direction only. Good thing to do while watching an epic defensive struggle football game. Small scratches disappeared.
