Hey Guys, I haven't on in awhile. Hope all is well.

Here's my "Dumb ?" What is the white stuff that is used to highlight the number & markerings on a firearm?

Brownells sells it as well http://www.brownells.com/aspx/...&title=LACQUER-STIK~

If you don't want to but the lacquer sticks, some people use Liquid Paper and even white crayon. Just filling the the stampings and wipe off the excess.

Antique firearms dealers and sellers for many years used just plain baby powder to highlight the markings on quality firearms they were photographing.
It's cheap, a small bottle lasts a lifetime, and it it completely removable with NO damage to your valuable firearm.
Never tried the lacquer stick, lacquer is kind of permanent.
