    Here's my '95 USP 45 V1. I used Lacquer Stix to fill the lettering which can easily be removed. If I decide to make it a little more permanent I'll pick some some model paint.

    ^^^

    I have to say that while I'm not generally a fan of painting the letters. This USP looks sharp. Nice job.

    Does LACQUER STICK stay long? I use Breakfree CLP to clean my gun, does it react with LACQUER STICK? Any experience?
    Thanks.

    I have had laquer stix in my Stag rollmark for years and use CLP all the time - no issues.

    I gave up on the nailpolish technique and am now using automotive touch up paint sold at the Auto Parts store.
    Buy a good brand auto touch-up paint. The GM Bright Red and Bright White were the best colour match to the HK factory paint colours and I am very happy with the effect. The Auto Paint holds up extremely well to cleaners and oils. I have had zero issues. It is more challenging to apply. I recommend keeping some cotton balls on hand soaked in Acetone so you can clean up any overages. The technique I use is 1) Apply paint using finger to subsurface area and wipe 2) Allow to flash dry 3) Take acetone soaked cotton ball and quickly swab area in rapid motion to remove overage/spills of paint outside of the intended subsurface area you are trying to fill 4) Allow to dry

    Works very well. I will post some pictures.

    EDIT: The brand of paint is Duplicolor. They sell it at Advanced Auto Parts. Works extremely well. Holds up to all cleaners and oils.
