Bluing touch up

Any of you fellas used those bluing touch up pens? Not looking to do anything extravagant just touch up a few marks from where scope rings slipped under recoil, real world experience? Yeah or naah?

I dont have any experience with them but think why not try it, I'd be interested in how it went

I haven't tried the touch up pens but I've had great success with Birchwood Casey cold building compound applied with a cotton tip.

Years ago, so maybe they've gotten better.

It blued the surface obviously, but did kind of look like you'd drawn in on with the pen. Was a noticeable patch where it was fixed.

I prefer a regular bottle and cloth so you can wipe it in overlapping layers and blend it in more.
