It will touch up, but you probably wont be able to do it with a Q-tip. What part is it on and what is the condition of the current finish? The quick way to do it would be to stip the part, lightly sand it, then place it if possible into a heated park solution, or dump hot solution onto it. If the finish is pretty thin then the whole part is going to parkerize some. If this gun is a shooter it will be fine. If you have it on display in your living room or something like that you might want to consider having the whole part refinished.

my enterprise receive has a couple of mark from the wrench close to the gas tube. They are only 1 by 1/2" and but the rest is ok. It really all cosmetic but I can't stand it. Thnaks
