I did the same thing with my mosin nagant. I heated the metal with a cigarette lighter and then rubbed in the crayon. The hot metal softens the crayon.

That looks pretty sharp. I think I've even seen some people use finger nail polish.

Wouldn't that kinda stick to the metal a little? Or oil the outside first. That would be a good idea. Man things people come up with right?

One would think it would not turn out to good. I'm not brave enough to try it. Lol

That's exactly why I used crayon. I couldn't paint or use anything with a slight permanent stick

I used navy blue finger nail polish on mine. Put it on in big blobs over where you want to fill in. Let dry an hour. Then use a rag and nail polish remover to take off excess polish leaving only the engraved marking filled in.
