Im a newbie on here! But I was looking thru this site,and I seen how some people who owns a Glock has the grooves colored in silver, where do I purchase the items to color mines, how much does it cost, and if you can let me know how to paint mines, it would be greatly appreciated. Maybe if not to hard,you can post pics of how to do it,and pics of your glocks that have been painted.

I colored in the letters on the left side (slide release side) of my G17 with a white crayon.
You can also use a China marker aka grease pencil. Just keep going over it until the grooves are filled in. Then wipe it clean with a dry cloth.

I wouldn't touch my any of my guns with a Sharpie. The idea is filling the grooves with something colored, that is waxlike and isn't permanent. The pigment color in a Sharpie is liquid. I wouldn't try to die gun metal with liquid when a solid substance fills in the lettering better and isn't permanent.

Get whatever color crayon you like and go to town with it. If you don't like that particular color, scrub it off with a nylon brush and some CLP. Try again with a different color.

I like the white myself.

SOP is Crayola "Tactical White" for lettering on firearms. However, as I have mentioned in the past, Hk owners are allowed to substitue Crayola "Tactical Red".

YMMV

Now you have to shoot it till the slide gets hot to the touch, this will "cure" the wax into the lettering. You will still be able to get it out if you want, but it will make the lettering more durable.

Nice pic!


That stainless Hk with red is gonna look killer, methinks.

Nice guns! I wonder how that Hk would look with the rest of the lettering in black?

Extra points for working the ILL logo in there.

The China markers will melt a little the first time they get hot , but after that
they take a set and remain until you scrub them out with a brush .
