What did you use Rub N Buff? Not my cup of tea, but its your pistol.

One could also go to the internet catalog Timesavers.com and order catalog items # 32148 (green), 32149 (yellow) or 32150 (white) and have your lettering glowing in the dark. I guess it could also be used as night sights.

I have never tried the stuff.

Looks' pretty good. It kind of looks like you went the crayon method. Which works well but comes off easy and can be a real pain to get into super fine details like the Beretta logo(which does look like the only hickup I can see int eh pics)

i used metallic silver fingernail polish..... can touch up easy or remove easy, and may be a little more durable than white out or crayon..
