I love the look of a glock with the engraving filled with white, I have tried this with white out but it doesnít last long. The foam in the case the glock comes in catches on the white out and rips it right out. I have also tried white nail polish O-O bad mistake. It didnít come off clean resulting in 30min of frantic scrubbing with a copper brush to get it off. And the nail polish remover destroys the finish of the slide. I was interested in the white crayon technique but Iím not sure if it would last. I told this to a buddy of mine and he laughed saying that it would just melt with the heat of firing it.
Please any advice or techniques are welcome and appreciated
Ive used crayons on a couple of my Glocks and never had any problems with it melting off. I currently hav red on my G19 and the wife and I have put 300-400 rounds through it and its still there.

I've used white nail polish before... then just nail polish remover to take it out if you want - non acetone type.
thanks man i tried it and it worked like a dream
Cool - Pics?
You might also try some white model car paint and some model car paint thinner. Fill the engravings using a fine tipped brush, the use a paper towel with a little thinner and a quick light swipe to remove the excess. That might work too. Anyways, Happy Shootin.

I went a different route and used a silver sharpie to fill in just the caliber designation on both of mine, and the same with the mags.
I use oil pastel crayons. Never had any problems at all. It stays in until I want to take it out. Little clp and it comes right out. No biggie
