    Remember, if you do lots of mag change practice (w/c you should), you'll scratch your magwell. Coloring it black may make the scratches stand out (lalo na when the gun is holstered most of the time.)

    Just my P2.

    ;)

    don't re-color the inside, magagasgas lang, so leave it as is. try mo lagyan ng 3M skateboard tape to cover up most of the outside flat surfaces of the brass magwell. Kaskasin mo lang yung 3M tape para di masyado matalim. It will also prevent the pistol from sliding off during table starts.

    sa ace hardware. its 3M safety-walk outdoor tread tape. pwede ring i-apply sa grip. we generally scrape off most of the grit as its too sharp.

    madaming gamit yang 3M grit tape. you can place the tape on the bottom of the base pads for extra protection when you drop the mags. on the slide forward of the ejection port for press cocking the slide. you can make custom grip panels, etc.

    use a coin to take off most of the grit. or cut 2 pieces and rub the two together to remove most of the sharp grit.

    get a blow dryer and heat the 3M tape so it softens before applying. this makes the tape follow the curves without crumpling and the tape bulging out.
