    Thumbs up A quick tutorial: Glow in the dark gun sights


    Purchase - Glow-On


    An easy, very quick way to upgrade simple gun sights into glow in the dark enhanced gun sights.
    three dots would suffice in most cases. one dot on the front is not out of the question. Plain iron sights on long guns are easy to make as well.

    We decided to go the fancy way here.
    however, the same result can be achieved just using your free hand.
    It's a paint product.
    It's a water-based acrylic after it dries it will last forever.


    Originally the two handguns looked like this:





    then a spot on paint on the front sights each...We used Yellow.






    We then apply Glow-On to the rear very generously covering the whole area and we let it dry for about 30 minutes.







    We could just leave it like this.
    It works perfectly for me. Here is what we have so far on both handguns:






    Then we use an X-Acto knife and we do two things:


    1- First we pres softly over the semi-dry putty-like Glow-On to make it flatter.
    2- Second, we trim around it until we are happy with the results. Square angles are what is popular with humans so be it.







    This is the end result:






    Seal it a couple of days later with transparent nail polish. don't use the UV filter type.
    Leave it alone for a couple of days! Don't scratch it to check for adhesion.

    We want our product to be simple and easy to apply.
    Syringes and small nozzle applicators always clog and waste paint.


    On this video, we all can see how simple the process is.
    and we removed the white paint off the gun sights for the purpose of the demonstration.
    Glow-On is opaque so it covers the dark surface.


    Other glow paints are semi-transparent.

    Glow-On consistency allows you to place almost perfect circles on your gun sights.

    Glow-On is so easy to use you can create any design you have in mind.
    Glow-On is opaque and it covers dark surfaces efficiently.
    100% money-back guaranteed.

    I used glow-on to fill in ak-47 clip on sights. I removed the old material and replaced it with Glow-On, glows brightly for several hours.

    Even the simplest of all home defense pump guns can benefit.
    Here is my 18 inches 12 gauge shotgun
    I didn't care for the plug and I added more shells.
    And of course Glow-On.


    Any perp trying to enter my realm thinking that this product doesn't work as advertised is in for a big surprise.

    And since we are talking plain iron sights, here is a small carbine.
    I have a red dot for the carbine but every once in a while it runs out of batteries without letting me know.

    The product is easy to handle and easy to apply. there is no need for special syringes, or else.
    An easy "Load and Transfer" method"


    Besides, we can see the consistency allows you to make almost perfect dew drop shapes or small dots.

    Purchase - Glow-On




    The first thing you notice on this tutorial is how eagerly the product"wants" to transfer!
    You don't have to force it, just a light touch, it transfers almost automatically.


    There is no need of nozzles or special syringes.
    We are not inflating a tire, filling a doughnut or applying either thick or sticky or any itchy stuff.


    Glow-On is a water-based plastic acrylic formula.
    The adhesion sets as it cures.
    it dries to the touch in less than one hour, it's malleable at that point, it can be flattened is you need flat dots.


    Here is the basic procedure:
