    I just removed a scratch on my MC hammer and it was real quick. I used a sanding pad that was maybe 1000 grit then I used some buffing paste. I thought I was going to have a problem but it polished out real quick. If I had any flitz I would have tried it.
    You could probably get good results using jewelers rouge.

    Is the slide brushed stainless?

    Hard to tell from the pic.

    Not steel wool, unless you know enough metallurgy to passivity it afterwards.

    3M abrasive pads would be my choice.

    I have used 600 grit paper , rubbing lightly , with the brushed grain ,
    and then a light rub with 0000 steel wool, and they disappear.


    Done this many times on brushed stainless to remove all types of blemishes.

    I say leave it.
    Gives the gun character and also lets people knows it gets used and is not a "Drawer queen". ;)
