What you're most likely looking at is filled letters, not engraved. A lot of people will use paint or nail polish to get the effect. You can use the search function to look at different colors that people have done. most of the threads will be in the M&P section. Here is the slide of my 40c.

I've used this product in years past. Looks good on a blued gun.

Don't think it would work on a matte finish though.

If you want to try the look but not necessarily commit, rub a Crayon over the engraving really fast, slowly getting the wax to warm and fill the engraving. Wipe the surface lightly with some alcohol to clean the surface and you will have color filled engravings that can easily be removed later should you get bored or want to sell it. The Crayon engravings I did on my AR cost me nothing in supplies and have lasted for half a year.
