      If you want it back to somewhat of an original finish, the parkerizing of the steel flip plate is the biggest pain in the rump, but Birchwood Casey sells a Aluminum Black product that you can do yourself for the aluminum with just degreasing the base and swabbing on or brushing it with the AB and letting it cure. The parkerizing requires a tank for the most part. But one of the easiest way to redarken any parts on the M14 is to use some Gunkote or Teflon-moly spray on it that you can also buy from Brownell's and just spray and bake it on. It's easy, quick and quite durable. I've been using it on various parts for the M1A/M14 for a while now with very good results.(Vortex, gas lock, plug{Springfield did my gas cylinder with it}) Watch how much you put on and with an eye towards runs, but it is a great finish that you can do yourself at home and lasts longer than just park alone.

      Decades ago the "Army" used a "Kodak" touch up paint, for camera bodies, IIRC. Birchwood Casey has what they call "Aluminum Black Metal Finish" which is more of a dye, than paint. https://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-...ckening-browning/aluminum-black-prod4941.aspx

      For "Larger Jobs" using an aerosol... this is a closer choice than "Black"... the Dark Parkerizing Gray is a decent match... https://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-...re-aerosol-paints/aluma-hyde-ii-prod1117.aspx or they have the cans for "Airbrushing" use, which you may be able to use with a small "Model" sized paint brush, to "fill" scratches.
