    Restore your gun sights

    Restore your gun sights to working condition with Glow-On super phosphorescent pigment.

    Your gun sights is the first thing to go bad, especially those indented white dots which accumulate all gunshot residues from all those visits to the range.

    To make matters worse, is really hard to get inside those dirty white dots the smaller they are.

    A simple solution is to fill the up with Glow-On, which rather than paint is dimensional.

    Q: How do I do that?

    A: Very simple, first clean those dirty white dots with a little piece of paper towel dipped in alcohol, second, fill in the dots with the Glow-On pigment, let it dry for a few hours, and repeat, when the water leaves the mix it should leave a small dimple, that is normal, just keep filling it until the dots are completely full when dry. The third step is to take a gillette blade or an Xacto knife and "shave" the excess off. The last step is cover the now flat Luminescent dot with transparent colorless nail polish. Done

    From now on all you are required to do is to wipe the sights with a regular disposable hand wipe sheet.



    Go with the glow

    Assume the phosphorescent paint must be "charged" with a light before it glows..?
