|CapnRich22||at my last job we use to do engraving... when we would do it on any metal, we would get nail polish because they come with a little brush and easy to get it into the engraved letters, but we would just wipe it off with acetone, and it cleans up real nice... not sure what acetone would do to the polymer but yeah good job|

|sevenservices||not sure what you mean? It fills in the lettering that is already stamped into the metal...|

The trick is really to scrape across the top after you fill the lettering. Then clean up around the letters before that drys. Let the letters dry for five to ten minutes then use just a little bit of remover on a rag to wipe across the letters and it cleans up the little bit left behind on the surface. Afterword, I let it sit overnight then re-oiled it.

|99Wrangler4x4||Nice! Think I could do that to my black Remignton 1187?|

|sevenservices||nice, the red white and blue would be cool. I have my eye out for some gold to do the lettering on my .50 cal muzzleloader. I tried red on an older gun to test, it doesn't stand out good on the black. Im thinking they would need to be done in white, allowed time to dry then re-done with red using the white like a primer.|

|Ageless Stranger||Looks great! I've seen pictures of one done in Red, White and Blue. It was very attractive as well.|

White lettering a firearm
I white lettered my Glock 30 (Sub compact .45) yesterday. Its not to hard of a process, I looked through youtube videos and found a combination of things to work awesome.
Best paint I found is white nail polish as it is made with laquer
Best way to clean is with alcohol
spread paint into the letters then scrape across them with a flat shiny business card like a putty knife to push the paint deep into the cracks and also shovel off any excess for easy cleanup.
Then, clean it up with nail polish remover (non-acetone) and a lint free cloth, let it dry overnight and oil 'er back up.
