First transition to a straight eight style:
This is a discussion on Glow-On Gun sights paint on a colt 45 within the Glow-On forums, part of the Site Sponsors category; This thread intends to show the transition of a set of Bomar style iron sights with Glow-On: We started with this:...
Seeing as the firearm sits in the dark most of the time the sights remain dark when U need them in the dark.
That's not necessarily the case.
A tactical LED lamp is an essential part of any strategy.
We would not advise to anyone to go on and start shooting in the dark at everything that moves!
A Tactical LED lamp is the bare minimal, should everything else fail.
A lamp will rekindle the Glow-On sights but in two seconds, which is about the time you need to sweep the lamp from rear to front sight.
From that moment on, you'd have enough time to effectively perform a safety scan of your home to check locks and bolts.

Especial care have to be given to:
1.- Make sure the surface is thoroughly clean.
Alcohol of good quality and a clean paper towel will do the job.
2.- Let the paint dry and don't try to scratch it to see if it's dry... let it cure for a couple of days before you holster your firearm. the paint will continue to harden for days just like any paint and so it becomes permanent.
3.- Optional, a scouring pad or fine sand paper can be use to create a bit of tooth on the sights surface to help adherence if the surface is polished.
Nice array of pistols, gatopardo. But - where's the M&P? Will Glo-On work on those? Just joking. I've painted the sights on my M&P40C & it works just fine.

I use it on several handguns and on the rifle front sight of my 870, uses a big ghost ring rear.
It's been on them for over a year now, no real loss of illumination noticed. They do live in the dark most of the time.
As was mentioned, even a very short exposure to almost any light source renders them usable.
