    Color Fill In

    I am not sure if I posted this in the right catergory. My wife liked my G2C so much she wanted one of her own. I think it would make a good christmas gift. What I would like to do is have the letters on the gun colored filled in. I have found videos on you tube on how to do this but I am not sure if I have the skill set to do it. Does anyone have a suggestion where I might can have this done. Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Welcome from Northern Illinois! My first and only attempt has been my S & W Compact Shield. I used white acrylic paint dropped in with a toothpick...let it sit for 10 minutes and wiped off the slide. Looks OK...the steel pores retained slight tint, but hardly noticeable. Some people use crayons. There are old posts on doing this in the forum.

    Non-acetone nail polish remover and your favorite color of nail polish. Wipe the area down using the remover and a lint-free cloth like a piece of a men's undershirt. Then paint the polish over the numbers/letters, you will have some outside the lines but not to worry. Let it dry. Then use a clean piece of the same cloth, wrap it around something like a thin piece of wood and wet (but do not saturate) it with the remover. Rub it over the work area. The polish outside the lettering will rub off but what's inside will be unaffected. The key is to use only enough remover to wipe the surface clean but not so much that it penetrates into the recesses. You probably will have to use several pieces to get all the excess.

    You can practice on some other metallic item. It's really not that hard and so long as you use the non-acetone remover, it won't hurt the metal.

    When people lose their way and begin to vote for their own yokes and chains and suddenly we’re all wearing them, when Government turns tyrannical and the light of liberty is being extinguished.... our 2nd amendment is our ONLY hope.

    You can easily do it yourself. I continue to do it on my collection.



    Also note that you can use some cereal box cardboard to sqeegee off the excess paint on fine lettering
