Tuma2You, I used metallic silver nail polish. You can search youtube for instructional videos. Search "Glock nail polish trick" or "letter fill". I basically used isopropyl alcohol and cleaned the area to be filled. After the area has evaporated then I take my nail polish and paint over the letters covering the whole letter area and let dry for about 30 seconds. Then with nail polish remover and some pieces of paper towel wet with nail polish remover and wiped away the excess. It will take multiple pieces of wet paper towel to remove the excess because if you continue to use the same piece it just smears all over the place. If you use metallic like I did you will have to work at getting all the little metal flakes off of the area around the lettering. If you use a solid color like white then it won't be so hard. After the letters are dry and you have all the residue cleaned off your slide will appear "white" or lighter than the rest of your slide but that is not a problem. Just wipe the area with a silicone cloth or use some gun oil and the dark black will re-appear. Hope this helps. A number of us on this forum have done this to our Sigs and it is real common amongst AR-15 owners. There are other ways to do this, some use crayons, and there is a product sold at brownells.com that is a laquer stick that you rub into the letters.
Hope this helped and if you decide to do yours, post pictures so we can check out how cool it looks.

Kenny D, how does that hold up to gun cleaning solvents. I did this on my spikes tactical lower but I used paint pens. It begins to come off and smear some with the use if CLP.

I don't have pictures, but I used a red paint pen on the numbers stamped in the mags. A little has come off since I first applied it, but it still looks consistent. CLP will remove some of the color if you let it soak into the roll marks, but it still looks great. Now after I shoot the pistol, I just try to be careful not to let the CLP soak into the roll marks since these are areas that don't get much powder residue anyways.
For you guys using nail polish, make sure you use a NON ACETONE nail polish remover. Otherwise, you will damage the finish on the polymer frame and/or some gun finishes on the actual metal if you get any on those surfaces.
