This is a discussion on Gun sights paint enhancement within the Glow-On forums, part of the Site Sponsors category; ...
So if your weapon has been sitting in the dark for say 3hrs and all of the sudden you are assaulted in a dark parking lot will they glow?
You may be able to trust your life to this product only once if it lets you down you may not get a second chance.
Trijicon night sight are always bright.
Obviously not your cup of tea, you don't have to buy it, I'm OK with that.
But I wonder if you can but a vial of tritium and apply it to dozen pistols and to your fishing lures, flashlights, gun mags etc?
In any case this is not a discussion thread so I'll leave it at that
It would take about a day or longer to lose the glow of usability. A quick flash from a flashlight should be all that is needed to re-brighten them. For the price difference of trijicon, just can't see the justification of them. Then, there is the fact if it is too bright...your face lights up as well and makes a target for the BG. I've used the old fishing lure paint for years without any problem. This stuff should be super-bright. I'd imagine it would make fish bite like crazy too. At close distance, you pretty much just need that front sight glowing anyway-if you get the front sight on, you'll probably hit the target. Even if it didn't glow, the thing is painted white! Should still be able to see it unless you're in one of our local backwoods areas called Boogertown where it's so dark you can't see your hand in front of your face and in that case, you'll just be able to hear the BG...LOL
