OMAS uses a very bad quality white metal plating.  If it isn't easily coming off my guess is the finish has been corroded away.  Do you have pictures?  Does it look anything like this?

If you bought it new from an authorized dealer you could try asking them to look at it.

Maybe someone here knows a way to remedy it.  I had the same issue with the OMAS I posted above and the AD replaced it because it was only a month or so old...the same thing happened with the replacement and I just decided to live with it.
