Hi all!

Anyone got any ideas on how to repair this? Or how to clean it up a bit, I did think bronze paint but thought I would ask

Two part body work putty, sand then paint. Will be purely cosmetic though

It’s a rail.

 

Accept it has happened.

The rail will still function as a rail, there are still threads in there.

 

Mount something on it, touch up with some paint or if you don’t like it then replace the rail.

 

Back in the day I filed back one of the rails on a gun body to precisely align a feed.  The item manufacturer saw my mod and asked for more pictures and dimensions which they put into the redesign of their next iteration. 
I no longer use the item, so if I bring out that gun there’s a shiney gap on a black body.  It has no effect on function

You're right of course but some of us are bothered by aesthetics...

Get a dremmel with a sanding stone and finish it off. The some JB weld and paint it.. Best thing is to use some magpul xtm covers though if you can...

Thanks for the tips guys much appreciated! Ladders and a laser box had crossed my mind, the paint might work too 👌🏻 thanks lads

I got it like this, the person before had done it for his use so I wasn't bothered by it
