Jamie: You're better off to leave it as is. It could be draw filed and reblued if the appearance bothers you, but even tigg welding might do more damage than the fall did.

What he said.... Heat bad...
"If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun." The Dalai Llama (5/15/01, The Seattle Times)
"That rifle on the wall of the labourer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there." George Orwell
