    I saw a M&P 22 the other day. The etching on it had a white in-lay. I thought it looked pretty good. Is that something only offered on the 22? And if so, could I paint the letters on my m&p40 or is there some other way to do it?

    You can do it yourself with nail polish there are some youtube videos that guide you through how to do it, its not hard to do i did it to my 45 with a platinum color nail polish i also did my father in laws xd40 in white and they both turned out pertty good.

    I did a target compound bow a few years ago and used a paint pen from the craft section at Walmart($4). Took the excess off with acetone and a q-tip.

    Wow that's more then I thought I would get. Thanks, I'm looking at doing it red. I saw a m&p 16 with red wording on it. Thought it looked pretty cool

    Did you buy the frame that way or did you dye it yourself?

    Gotcha. I didn't think it was paint. So I went with dye. But thanks for the info. The gun looks good
