Kimber K6s with gold letters? Photos added.

I've been waiting for my LGS to get in a gently used K6s so I wouldn't have to lay out $800+ to own one. This morning the wait has ended but I have a question that I'm hoping someone can answer for me. The K6s that I picked up came with gold letters on the gun, the .357 magnum and K6s on the barrel and the Kimber on the right hand side are all in gold letters. I can't seem to find much about this on the net so I'm hoping someone on this forum can shed some light on this for me, thanks in advance. If photos of the gun would help let me know. Thanks.

Sounds like the previous owner did a "color fill" with nail polish. I have done it only once to a Shield. It can be removed with non acetone nail polish remover.

YES, pics always help! Not offered from factory Kimber as far as I know?

I know gold a silver are hard colors to do it with because the metallic in the paint. But using a insulin needle and a small paint brush to clean up the letters works really nice. I use enamel paint when I do it.
