Fixing Scratches on Autococker

As many of you know (if you looked at the newbie section) I bought a shocktech vortex autococker and the ball detent (I think that is what is called...the part that holds the ball in place) well the guy used a wench or needle-nose pliers to screw it in and scratched the hell out of it.

It is the black to blue to silver fade. It is in the blue part. Any good ideas on how to fix it? It just looks so bad and drives me crazy. All around it and it has kinda deep scratches so they stand out against the blue.

not much you can do about it - other than getting the gun re anodized.

Is the ball detent damaged or the body of the gun around the ball detent?

If it is the ball detent, replace it. If it is the body it will need to be re anodized as stated above. Or matching color sharpie just to make it a better 4 footer.

You could put a small sticker on there, large enough to cover around the detent hole. Just take a hole puncher and pop out a hole for the detent to thread through.

I guess it would be a pretty damn big sticker. Would look weird too. Maybe the sharpee idea is the best?

However, where could I get it re anno'ed and how much would it cost?

For small scratches a good old sharpie does wonders.

Ano places are hard to come by now (or at least ones that do a good job and are paintball related). Don't be surprised if not many people know any places, I've been looking for some time now and havn't found anything that looks promising, even using the sticky in the custom section.
