I did the lettering on my S&W Model 29 several years back. I did the rollmark on the barrel in white. It worked very well. It works easier if you're doing it on a high polished smooth surface, as opposed to a Parkerized one. But that holds true with any type of fill engraving.
Mine held up through several years of cleaning and shooting. Finally it started to yellow, most likely from oil and cleaning. I redid it with a product called Bonanza Silver. It's a little more involved process, but I like the way it turned out. They also have it in gold as well. Again, it works best on the higher polished surfaces. Be advised this is a much more permanent system. The nice thing about the China Markers is if after time you don't like it, you can remove it quite easily with alcohol and a stiff bristled tooth brush.
