I needed something to do today so I did a white out on my M&P 1.0. I have never done this before and think it came out quite well. I might do it to a few other firearms I own.
I watched some videos on YT on how it's done, then took a little bit of information from each video and combined them.
Opinions (those that don't like it please don't beat me up too bad)?

Does it hold up under gun solvents?

China Markers hold up very well. Midway sells them in various colors, and you can't beat the price.

I like it. I may do that to something really plain like a Glock some day.

I used finger nail polish. I built it up on the letters then scraped off the excess with a business card. I then let that dry about 15 minutes and used non-acetone nail polish remover to remove the excess. I then cleaned my 1.0 using Hoppes #9 then lightly oiled it with a 3 IN 1 oiled rag.
So yes, it did hold up to the Hoppes solvent.

I have nothing to do all day but either read or watch TV. I saw a few posts on other websites and thought, I can do that. So I watched YT videos about it and came up with my own plan of attack.
It helped pass a couple of hours of the day doing something.
Just curious, but does it bother you that people do this to their guns? If so, why? smile

I've discovered in both the gun and car cultures that people can be very judgemental of others if they do something different. I have been going out of my way to try and not to be and try to see it from the viewpoint of the person that is hyped up over doing whatever they did.

Something like a medium gray might look pretty good too.

I think I posted this pic before. But this is my Beretta with the lettering highlighted in gold. It was an inlay kit made for that purpose.

Good question. I tend to be judgemental when I see others do something "silly" (as perceived by me) Yet I do understand that one size doess not fit all. shrug

To me firearms fall in 2 catagories: tools and collectables. I personally don't see the OP's gun fitting in my own little unsophistigated world. smile
