I did the lettering on the slide myself. The frame is the FDE frame Glock/Lipseys released in April. That is the color as it came from Glock.

It really looks great but i have another question. If you ever choose to remove the paint, what do you use to remove the paint without hurting the finish on the slide? Thanks
