I did my own using nail polish, er, I mean "tactical enameled paint". It's not hard to do and has held up really well.
It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

High quality paint pens work well also.

Its not something you need to pay somebody to do. Paint pens and nail polish work fine, watch a few videos on YouTube. Just know that once you color fill, its hard to go back. Seems like color fill was a fad for a little while so if you ever try to resell....

It's too easy to pay somebody to do it. And if you want to go back, just use black paint to cover it back up. I colorfilled all the logos on my shield with blue, and I like it.

FWIT. I shop used guns all the time and won't buy one with painted in writing. It's tacky looking to me.

It's just a personal thing. so don't pile on.

Just thinking if OP may sell this gun someday.
