    How to apply gun sights paint.

    Hello, could you please explain briefly how should I apply your product o my sighs?
    Here is a sequence I put together.
    -Basically you take the wooden applicator, or a tooth pick or a stick, etc.
    -Then after you stir your Glow-On with the wooden stick, you pick a small droplet and just lay it on your sights.
    Let it dry and repeat this procedure until you have a nice, thick enough, dot.
    Let it dry for a few hours and the put a layer of transparent nail polish over it.

    Let it cure for a couple of days before you holster your firearm.

    Red Bubble Gum color gun sights?

    I was planning to buy some of your red paint on ebay but couldn't find it????? instead found a bubble gum red paint why the change? Is this a different color, thanks.
    Is the same color, this is what some of our customers call them and we found appropriate to just rename them altogether.

    These are not a "fire engine red" and "traffic cones" orange, they are really tints of the color, a pastel, a bit washed out you might say.



    This is approximately what they look like:

    Glow-On: why is it 10/10???

    How exactly do you give a glow value to your product? like 10/10, 9/10, 8/10, etc. I've never seen this on any other glow product I've ever found, just curious


    Actually is very simple, so simple it's amazing nobody thought of it before:

    Glow is light.
    White light can be divided in colors, like rainbow.
    At the center, is where the most visible colors sit: Yellow and green.
    The Original Glow-On is at the center with a lot of white light in it , so it's a 10 out of 10 or, 10/10.
    Yellow sits to one side and green at the other side, those are 9/10.

    Orange and red are next to yellow on one side as the light fades. Those are 8/10 and 7/10.

    Aquas and Blues sit after green in the opposite direction as the light fades. Those are 8/10 and 7/10.
    Aqua is a special case because it contains yellow light in it so its a 9/10

    So that's why Glow-On Yellow and Green are so popular, because they have a nice visible color and respective glow.

    Here's an example so you can see what I mean:



    You'd be in trouble trying to fin a very bright blue or red light.

    1911 a-1, from stock sights to glow-in-the-dark sights

    Do you have any suggestions as to how I cam make dots on my 1911? I have mil spec stock sights


    Forget the dots, paint the whole blade

    Clean the front and back blades with alcohol.
    With fine grade sandpaper add some tooth.
    Apply the paint thick and let it dry.
    A couple of layers are needed.
    A layer of transparent nail polish helps.
    Don't holster the piece for at least a week.

    Glow-On tutorial: How do you apply the glow film for gun sights?

    ...You've posted on several occasions the application of your paint product, I purchased the sticky form, the glow is pretty decent and I am planning to set the front sights with it. It would be interesting if you have some pictures how you do this..
    Yes, .
    There's one advantage of using the self adhesive film, when you are done with the application, the sights are done!
    The paint has to be allowed to dry and cure and this might take a few days.

    Conversely, the paint is very easy to apply, to apply the self adhesive you have to measure it, prep it, cut it to the right size and set it.
    In any case here's a brief tutorial I concocted today:

    Glow-On: Can I put a clear coat like poly urethane +expect the same glow?

    Can I put a clear coat like poly urethane over this and still expect the same glow??


    Yes as long as the clear coat is transparent.
    There is no chemical reaction between the gun sights paint and the clear coat.

    The use of a good quality nail clear coat is advised as it is not only very durable but also it can be removed easily with acetone.

    Well, I tried it. Not impressed. will work great for fishing rod tips etc, but for gun sights, im not feeling it. Sorry, but I am being honest.

    Glow-On gun sights paint

    Do you take orders on the phone? I don't like PayPal
    We take orders online only.
    You could go to amazon.com to purchase.
    If you happen to use our website and you are taken to PayPal, you can choose the "I don't have a PayPal account" and the just pay with your credit Card without need to register for a PayPal account.

    For how long have your company been in business? Is your product radioactive? Would you recommend it over fiber optics or tritium?
    We've been making paint since 2010. Our product is non-radioactive.
    Fiber optics are great as long as light is present.
    For now Tritium is the best option for night sights, if you have the money and or your weapon can be retrofitted with it.

    If there is the possibility and money to install tritium, or fiber optics, or lasers, or such on your firearm, do it.

    But if those chances are nil, you still have a choice, sometimes the only choice.

    We offer the opportunity to gun owners to retrofit old firearms equipped with plain iron sights or white dots with our Glow-On.

    But if those chances are nil, you still have a choice, sometimes the only choice.
    For the price of a fast food meal is hard not to try it and with a 100% money back guarantee, why not?

    Glow-On: How it is suppose to work at night?


    Just had a question about your product. I put it on the sight of my gun but I am having a hard time understanding how it is suppose to work at night. I conceal this weapon so its not really ever in the light. Am I suppose to charge it every time I go out or can I only use it if it has been charging in the light? Thanks
    1.- It charges in 2 seconds with any cheap 9 LED flashlight.
    To take full advantage of Glow-n you want to keep a small flashlight next to your firearm.
    There's plenty of material on the web which explains in detail how to operate a firearm with the help of a tactical light.

    2.- It charges instantaneously in daylight if you need to check a garage, a barn etc.

    3.- We are not endorsing going into dark places gun in hand where lurking evil forces might be in ambush waiting to get you.
    Unless, that is, you know that evil has the form of some varmint like a raccoon, a possum or a rat, or a snake...lol!

    How often do you have to reapply?

    How often do you have to reapply?
    Never, the median life of the glow is ten years.
    You can remove it and reapply it if you want to change the configuration.

    We do this all the time since we don't have an unlimited number of firearms to show all the configurations we can come up with regarding the use of Glow-On.

    Say, for the most the logic is to cover the white dots most guns have.
    After awhile you might want to go further.
    Just pry off the Glow-On and reapply.
    Something like this:
