I just bought a new Thunder 380 Plus and have shot two mags thru it. Shoots great.

I'm a retired journeyman machinist with over 20 years in aviation manufacturing for the Department of Defense, and I'm a little concerned about the lack of 'attention-to-detail' that Bersa did on the machining of my gun.

The whole outside lower part of the trigger guard has a pronounced burr on both sides. I shoot right handed, so the right side is where my middle finger comes in contact with the frame. All of my other handguns (S&W, Ruger, Dan Wesson, Colt, Beretta, and even my High Standard) have a smooth radius at these points.

Now, I must take a jeweler's file and remove these burrs, but the first thing that will be removed is the plating in these areas.

My Thunder has the matt black finish. My question is, what can I put on this soon-to-be bare metal? The only thing that comes to my mind is hitting it with a black magic marker every now and again.

Thanks for any advise.

I have used a black magic marker many times on different guns. Works great. They also sell various pens that dispense cold blue. When using the marker, I've found that if you let it dry, then give it a little finger rubbing, it will blend in not so noticeabley. Not perfect, but I have touched up quite a few where you really could not tell afterwards. Honestly, never tried one of the glueing pens, so I can't speak of the results you may get with one.
