I debated doing the paint fill on all 3 of mine. only to keep the mags/ pistols straight at the range. (hey...range time ain't cheap)

I decided against it. not that it looks bad, I just figure, it looks ok as is.

I'll agree with you on this, mine was purely boredom!!!

Testors gold with NON-ACETONE nail polish remover for clean up. Odorless mineral spirits will wipe it off completely without any damage. White out on the plastic.

I like the silver coloring. Looks really classy. How does the nail polish and model paint hold up to cleaning solvents? Also, do you brush it on and then just wipe off the excess?
Yes just dab it on let the paint sink into the letters then lightly wipe off with non acetone nail polish remover, there are youtube vids that explain it in more detail if needed.

Non acetone finger nail polish remover
Fingernail polish color of choice, testors enamel paint, white out, or crayon.
Rubbing alcohol (91%) is the best. You may have to go to drug store to get it, wally world only has lesser %

Clean the area to be painted with the rubbing alcohol to remove any grease or oil. Let dry. Or used canned or compressed air to help it along.

Paint a square around the logo or lettering you want to color fill. Let dry. Use a damp (not wet) paper towel or cleaning patch of non-acetone fingernail polish remover to gently wipe away the paint that is above the etched lettering/logo.

What remains is the paint inside the lettering/logo. If the area around the area seems a bit foggy after you remove the excess paint, get a patch with some RemOil or other gun oil and polish it up.

Rem oil or most any gun cleaner will effect it. I found that white out lasts the longest for me. Pentel Presto is the brand, fine point, has like a pen nib on the end.

Here is my 40FS with white out.

If you mess up, just rub it all off and try again. You will find your "touch" as you do it a few times.
