Lose that colorless gun etching and transform your pistol with less than $20.

Unless you’ve paid to have your gun etching professionally painted, you’re probably stuck with colorless lettering and logos. After all, manufacturers are focusing on producing a quality firearm, not a custom painted piece of art.

With less than $20 bucks and a little bit of time, you can easily transform your pistol etching into an eye catching masterpiece. Check out how easy this is!

And just like that, you have yourself custom painted etching in no time.

Having completed this project myself on several firearms, I can tell you that having custom painted etching really makes your pistol stand out amongst the rest. The easiest place to obtain the correct paint is your local hobby store, just mention that you’ll be painting metal and they’ll be able to point you in the right direction. Literally, the hardest part of this process is determining what color to choose!

One more quick tip, when you wipe off the excess paint with a cloth, do so lightly several times, it’s really easy to remove paint from the etching itself!

As always, make sure that your firearm is unloaded before beginning this project.

Good luck and happy painting!
