    Bright Sights High Visibility Gun Sight Paint

    Has any one tried this stuff? I was considering picking someone up for the front sight of my 1911 and for my PT145 but don't want to bother if it's garbage.

    I think it's a waste of $$. Either use night sights or a fiber optic sights.

    If you're looking for quick acquisition of the front sight for "meat around the metal", I don't see a problem with it. Many people have painted their front sights before.

    Or you could just use nail polish

    I personally have no problem with the stock color of any of my sights.

    I bought the complete set of "Bright Sigits Professional" paints several years ago, which included the "Ghost Glow" colors (it didn't). It's just paint. Actually, it had a tendency to fall off the front sight after several days in the holster. I still have the complete set stuffed in a drawer.

    I'd say save your 30 bucks, or whatever, and get a small bottle of testors Model paint, or some good appliance touch up paint... or better yet, as has already been suggested get fiber optic or tritium.

    Just my experience.

    Meh, it's OK, but only OK.

    My tritium went dark after 9 years (used pistol). I used it as a "band aid" to get me through the IDPA season. I think prep of the surface is critical to sticking. I cleaned mine with naptha (lighter fluid) and roughed it up a bit. Did a few thin coats instead of a big blob. Still sticking.

    I didnt have any problems with the couple I put it on... maybe the material? just make sure you prep first, and remove oil etc

    the "glow" worked for me also... but I didnt find it very useful if you have it holstered or in a pocket all day... (it needs light to charge the glow) but once I had it in the light for a while it did glow.. but the kit had 3 non glow (looks brighter in the light) and 3 of the glow paints..


    that being said I have tridium on my EDC, with the eception on the keltec that has fixed sights

    Nail polish is free and comes with a brush and a multitude of colours, when dry apply the nail quick dry hardner top coat.......
