I have. I use it on my sp101 and vaquero. I shoot them alot better with the rear sight notch blacked out. I need to find a more permanent solution. The fingernail polish doesn't survive cleaning after a range session.
On the front sight, I used Glo-It, a Luminescent Paint Medium. Kind of a yellow-green color. Cheaper than Trijicons. On a fixed sight gun like a SP-101, it is really nice. The front sight then "glows in the dark." I like it. I cannot remember where I bought it. I think in a crafts store.
Ron get me all worked up abut this here paint and then you drop that line I can't remember where I bought it. I use nail polish as lock tight for scopes and orange never thought of that on the front sight will have to try that.
No, that's different thing. It's pretty bright afterdark and almost unnoticeable at daylight. The one Stainless mentioned works opposite, and easily be found at any WalMart type of store. I bought glowing green and orange acrylic for a $1.05 per bottle. That quantity is enough for an entire city arsenal.
Most glow in the dark paints need to be exposed to light before they glow (like your watch hands). Since I keep my KP345 in the bedside table drawer I am wondering if the sights will be glowing when I pull it out in the middle of the night. Anyone have any experience with this?
I have the front site painted orange on my K-22 Masterpiece. It makes it a lot easier to get a good sight picture. I went to the dollar store after Halloween and picked up a bottle of white and a bottle of orange nail polish. I put on two coats of white first to help the orange show up better and then two coats of orange. It's been on there for 4 years now and has never needed a touch up.
I use a "luminous" paint that I got at WalMart for painting the curb or mailbox. It's about $5 for a pint. I have a lifetime supply of sight paint.
I'm "Old School" and used to use WhiteOut on my front sights back in the day. My Off Duty EDC and BUG have this paint on their front sight. My S&W 686 has one of those "glow tube" type sights, and except for being red, I prefer green, is a great sight too. I'm just too lazy to change it since I don't carry the dang thing.
My "bottomfeeders" have Night Sights, but I think that if it's too dark to see your sights it's too dark to identify your target. Hence, I keep a Surfire next to my bedside gun, which is my Off Duty EDC.
