Blue Touch Up

I have a spot on the barrel of my shotgun that I want touched up. Have have tried the birchwood cash touch up pen with unsatisfactory results.
What other product out there on the market is excellant for blue touchups.

The one most people agree is about the the best is Brownell's Oxpho-Blue.
Remember that no cold blue will come anywhere close to matching a factory hot salts blue job in color match or durability.

I use the oxpho blue creme and it works good. You do have to be patient and work at it a bit depending on how dark you want it but it's good stuff.
