Color fill

Recommended Posts

I've done it with testors model paint. It's not difficult, just tab a toothpick into the paint then into the roll mark. Once roll mark is filled lightly wide over and around the roll mark with paint thinner, testors as well, on a q-tip or paper towel. Then let dry.

Used testors paint as well...holds up alright if you degreased before applying and if you never clean/oil the exterior of the receiver. 

Once you apply oil, the degradation starts only because you have to rub/wipe so if you do go through with it, try not to rub hard or not at all or it will fade/chip off.   

pros:  looks cool at first

cons:  not very easy to fill in with precision and to wipe off any excess cleanly.  Must use caution to not inadvertently get any of the colors to bleed into each other (white and red) unless you're going for pink roll marks.  Also it doesn't last if you wipe down the receiver often with oil and obviously any solvents.  

Conclusion:  not worth the time and effort..and the cost of the paint.  Can buy a box of ammo instead.
