Hello all, I have a few light scratches on the slide of my Springfield 1911 near the slide release. Any comments on how to buff those scratches out? Appreciate any comments.....

If it's a matte finish lightly rub it with a green scotchbrite pad. The key is to do it randomly.
The Scotchbrite will reduce "shiney" places on a matte finish. If you hold the gun just right, and know where to look, you will still see something (tiny random scratches), but to the casual observer it looks nice. Again, the key is RANDOM, which is difficult as humans are creatures of habit and tend to do things in patterns.
