Ugh, in an effort to reduce the charging effort, I removed the cocking tube support, polished it some and attempted to install an extended charging handle I got from hkparts.net, which I think is wrong (not for a "K" model). Once installed, it was a little difficult to pull back but when I did, it did not want to go forward. I had to tap it pretty hard and in turn, marred up the slot the handle rides in. Keep in mind, without the pin installed, the handle move forward and back easily and I know the pin was centered when I pulled back. Any suggestions for a fix? Should I just take a file and knock the edge off and put some black touch up paint? Ugh, I'm such a dumbass.

I have no advice on the matter but wanted to extend my condolences. I would feel like an arse too! I promise you someone here on these forums has the perfect solution. Great community here.

I never saw the need for an extended handle on the K, but, YMMV. When you get the handle worked out, get your self
some Birchwood Casey super black, like a paint pen but better (flat or gloss, your choice) for a quick and cheap touch up. HTH

This stuff is great for little touch up jobs. I have both flat and gloss..... used them on non gun related repairs also.

I agree. Apply the gun lipstick and press. It will acquire more character as it is used. The money you'll dump into correcting/refinishing the weapon would be better applied on the range/in the field.

If you are having an issue with stiff cocking, check out this thread. Helped mine a lot.

Mine's a range toy, figure it will get scratched once in a while.
Not really worried about scratches, the metal is in way that it has a very sharp edge and I want to treat the exposed metal to keep any rust from forming. I shoot all my guns and even try to do some shooting classes with them.

looks like you could take a small bastard file, smooth it out and finish with a bluing pen to prevent rust . i've had good results with the casey bluing pen on some of my old S&W revolvers and MAK90's .

We've all done it. Kind of like a the first scratch on a new car. You either learn to deal with it and do you best to never repeat it or get used to paying to refinish after ever range trip..

Smooth the sharp edges with a small needle file, and touch up with a good cold blue (Oxpho blue, etc).

You won't even notice it after a while. Paint may scrape off there if it's not a hard paint like Alumahyde or ceracoat.
