scratch buffing or touch up paint

So i bought my brand new luxe oled and i scratched it. Uggh made me want to cry. Even though i know it will happeb eventually. My question is is there anyway to buff the scratch without ruining the dust finish or is there a place i can get touch up paint for a charcoal luxe.

Same happened to me, luckily it was on the edge of the back cap. The anno may only be very thin, so buffing it out may make it worse

A luxe isn't painted, it's anodized. Trying to buff the area will do nothing for the scratch and very possibly ruin the finish around it. Automotive touch up paint won't help either because you won't find a match for it. Scratches happen, it's the nature of the game. You either have to live with it or re-anno the entire gun.

Just so you know, dust finishes seem to scratch easier, or at least show them more, than gloss finishes.

As mentioned without buffing it and then re-annodizing the gun you cannot get rid of it. Is it a bad one? The expectation on purchasing used guns is some degree of scratching/wear so it shouldn't be much of a concern to you if/when you do go to sell it.

Paint wouldn't stay on long, especially house paint. Post a pic of this scratch please, it might not be as bad as you think it is (to us at least).

Eh it's not that bad, just use the gun and dont worry about it. Chances are that anything you do to try and make it look better will end up making it look worse.
