    Have any of you out there done this (crayon, white-out, etc.)? What's your preference?

    I have used the Crayon on a couple of Glocks and it gets the job done.
    I was cleaning one of them and my grand daughter came in and wanted me to help her with her crayons. Of course I did, and thought about putting the white in the lettering. I was realy just after a way for the number of rounds to show up in the magazines. I needed to mark the 7 round hole. I used the crayon for that and just got carried away. It worked fine and is still there. I found out later that someone had posted it on the internet and it was in a book as a part of dressing up a Glock.

    When I tried this with a crayon, it was difficult to get the excess off of the slide without also removing some of what had filled into the lettering. How were you able to do that?

    I use crayon but sometimes it's a pain. I wonder if a white colored pencil would work?

    Mostly with a fingernail, and hard headeness.
    It would come out, and I would put it back. I wasn't going to let a crayon beat me.
    I have been thinking about using silver paint and a toothpick.
    Someone else used silver paint with the idea that it would look like the letters were cut into the metal, and it sounded good to me.
    Might try the silver Crayon first, If She has a silver one, and she will let me use it. She thought the white was Cool.
    Next she will be wanting me to use Pink, because that is Her favorite.:laughabove:

    I would post pictures, but don't have a digital camera.
    I save up for one, and then run across another pistol that needs a new home.
    You mean you havn't herd of Rustys Home For Lost And Unwanted Glocks?
    They keep finding there way to my house.
    Even a couple of Springfield 1911's showed up and moved in.
    My door is always open, and a full safe is a happy safe.
    We have 9mm's, 40cals, 45s, and a couple of 22cal conversions.
    We have adopted 5 Glocks, and Fostering the two conversions.
