995 Barrel Painted?

  1. Another question when I installed my ATI stock. When I removed the barrel retainer, I noticed the barrel's finish looked "chipped".

    It's a decent spot, about the size of a pinky fingernail.

    Does Hi-Point paint the barrel or is it just a really thick blue?

    What would be the best way to repair this?

    Thanks.
     
  2. My best guess is that its a paint. I would lightly sand and try an automotive hi temp paint and cure it in the oven at a low temp and see how it comes out, if it were me.

    Of course if you go with the oven, take any plastic parts off first.
     

  3. Hi Temp grill paint works well too, the kind you repaint a charcoal or gas grill with.
