Default Glock Lettering

OK, for a while I have been kicking around the ideal of coloring the lettering on my Glock(s) white. I just can't seem to put my finger on why I like it. What seems to the way to go? What say you?

Try chalk first and see if you like it.

The white lettering looks great. Good idea to use something temporary at first. Maybe a white crayon if chalk doesn't stick. Otherwise I've heard of people using model paint and a needle to apply - a drop is supposed to flow into the stampings.

It's a fad that comes and goes.

Testor's Model Paint applied with a needle or pin.
One drop fills in each letter. Use an absorbent cloth to soak up the excess.

OR, Liquid Paper/White-Out...removes with alcohol & q-tips.

OR, Nail polish and nail polish remover.
Remove slide from gun FIRST...acetone can do bad things to synthetics
But it looks good when complete!
is this a mod someone did? - Glock Talk

Don't use Crayon if you do any rapid fire, like IDPA/IPSC/GSSF...it just melts off.

Marlin did several rifles with gold at the factory in the old days...the 39A Golden springs immediately to mind.

Some gun dealers were know to do the white lettering to help their old eyes see what they were selling...

And quite a few folks have done it on their own over the decades...

Some folks like it, some don't...but in all cases, its relatively easy to remove.
