Hi all, I'm new to the P5 fourm. But have been over at the PP/TP forum before. I just bought my first P5 at the LGS. Beautiful condition. Looks barely fired. It does have a few little knicks though. Was wondering about how it might be touched up? What is that finish on the frame? My pistol is from the late '80s if that makes a difference.

The frames are all anodized aluminum. Not sure what would work to give a seamless touch up. I have left mine as is for a long time because I think honest wear looks better than an obvious touch up.
Welcome to the wonderful world of the P5.

Thanks BlitzPig... I don't mind normal wear but little nicks drive me nuts. It's really in only a few places. Weird how it looks like the frame is painted. Just some touch up would go a long way. Found a thread that talked about Aluma-Hyde. I may try it. Otherwise my pistol is in excellent condition. Most of the nicks are on the nose of the frame where the slide goes on.

I wouldn’t mess with it, but if you do please let us know how it turns out.
