There I was, cleaning my Arsenal SA M7R. I had reassembled the rifle all the way except for replacing the dust cover. I laid the rifle down on the table to pick up the bottle of Break Free...and....
In a total Bubba moment, I bumped the table slightly and the rifle (minus dust cover) went clattering to the concrete floor. Luckily, it landed on the barrel and pistol grip and miraculously propped itself against some folding chairs so it didn't appear to damage the recoil assembly or anything. The dust cover didn't fare so lucky: it clattered to the floor separately and picked up a pretty obvious scratch right at the rear of the ejection port. I quickly ran to the range and put 200 rounds through the rifle to make sure it wasn't damaged, sights not knocked off target, etc. The rifle seems fine, but the dust cover has that ugly scratch now.
Is there a finish that I can apply to just the dust cover to match the original Arsenal paint? I'd prefer a "rattle can" solution and not have to have the cover professionally redone.
