When I got my P-3AT the Parkerized finish on the slide was perfect. After shooting 100 flawless rounds I now see some brass colored scratching on the top behind the ejection port as seen in the picture. I tried to clean it off with some regular Hoppes cleaner, but it did not come off. I was thinking this could be from the shell getting hitting the top of the slide on the way out. Has anyone else seen this before, and should I worry about it? Is there another cleaner that would get it off, or should it go back to the mother ship do to a finish flaw?

You could try some bore cleaner for copper/brass. KT only warrants finishes for a few weeks, and I doubt if that would be covered anyway. Your other option would be to strip the finish off and re parkerize it yourself, you can get kits for around $20.

Copper Bore Solvent.

Never heard of any brass solvent.

Hoppies #9 should take it off if you leave it on there overnight.
It has a very mild copper solvent action.

That is what I used, but I only tried to wipe it off. I did not let it soak. Maybe I will try that before I go trying to find another cleaner to keep around.

Thanks
