    I saw a Super X1 with what looked like gold inlay on the engraving on the receiver. Is this done by the factory? Does anyone know anything about this?
    Thanks

    For those wanting to make an elegant firearm look very tacky, you can buy the kit to inlay gold paint/powder from Brownells. http://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/general-gunsmith-tools/engraving-tools-supplies/gold-silver-inlay-kits/bonanza-brushing-inlay-prod6633.aspx

    Brownell's also offers a gold or silver lacquer stick that is rubbed into the engraving. It works better than the Bonanza kit and is less expensive.
