    My gun has a few minor, plastic abrasions and scratches that I'd like to seal, any recommendations? Much appreciated. :)

    Why!?

    It adds to the realism, and reduces noobish'ness!

    :D

    Really? Think so? I guess it could. Still, any recommendations just in case I really need it?

    Wet sanding with 300 grit emery paper in small circular motions along the scratch, then switch to 600 grit wet sanding, then 1000 or 1200 grit.

    For clear plastic or glass (like RDS lenses) use toothpaste. Rub it in with your finger tip in small circular motions, then rinse and repeat till they're gone.

    Take your time and don't rush it. Rushing it will lead to poor results.

    Toothpaste has micro abrasives in it. That's why it's used to polish teeth. :D

    I used the toothpaste on the wooden fore grip of my AKMS and it got the scratch clean off and left a nice minty smell. Thank you for the help.
