    Thanks! I was actually looking and couldn't find it. I may email them and ask if I can substitute the silver/alum powder for the gold/brass, otherwise, just another $6. All of my guns are completely black, so it may be a nice touch. I will definitely post pics if I go through with it.

    Ok I like others normally don't like the look of some fill ins. But this is great. One it just looks classy. Two I'm from Purdue. Black and gold for life. Love it

    Very easy to apply. I watch a YouTube video on it first. And went at it. Drying time was like a minute before cleaning excess off. I've done color before using crayon and I think that was harder to do than this gold. I do suggest taping off everything except the lettering on the slide.

    I think it looks great. Just enough to stand out, but not too overwhelming.

    I was expecting cheap hooker look but that really does look good. I would like to see one done in silver.
    I guess it lasts better than crayon? Does it hold its color for long time?

    My buddy filled in those same areas with a white crayon and buffed it up, looked pretty good and not a permanent change. Just thought I'd throw that in there.

    Is it the same process on the grip? I wondered if that was possible but didnt want to damage the finish on or the polymer itself. Looks good
