Happy fourth of July everyone

Did the paint on your gun sights fell off at the range while you're shooting.
What a great opportunity to try Glow-On.
Glow-On is easy to apply and it's guaranteed to work.

You can just"create" any image for your gun sights, a delta, a straight eight, paint the whole sights. etc.

Glow-On is made in Oklahoma, USA we ship in the US and internationally. We ship to our armed forces anywhere in the world, salute!

I'm seriously contemplating trying your product out. What color stands out the best in the daytime in your opinion? Thanks!

I have the standard green and the aqua. They both appear mostly white in the daytime, and are both pretty bright at night with just enough color differentiation for me to easily tell apart the front and rear sights. Important for a near-sighted guy like myself.

Thanks for the AD... I am definitely interested in night sights without having to spend a bundle.

That's what I'd like to avoid. My P95 has the basic three-dot white sights and they're often just too difficult to pick up quickly in the daytime. So, I'd like some colors that stick out as much as possible during daytime hours. Any color at night would just be bonus. lol

If you're already painting this on, you could paint some neon color surrounding it. They recommend you coat their product with clear nail polish when it's cured anyway.

Certainly a thought! But, when I get home I'll have to take a look at the sights again. I feel like there may not be enough space to place a dab of the Glow-On and a ring of neon color around it. At least, on the front sight.

I bought the original color about a week ago. Phenomenal stuff. I charge each sight for about a minute with a flashlight and they shine BRIGHT from 10pm til 5am. Last night I simply stood the Rami up under a lamp for a while and it illuminated all night, too.

Glow-On for some pump action

My wife has an 18" barrel "as basic as it gets" pump action shotgun handy at all times.
She's practice for several scenarios and she uses Glow-On on the front bead and behind the barrel.
This type of weapon creates a big spread at 15 feet so there's not really need to use the sights.
Just align the markings in the dark with your peripheral vision and BOOM!

Saiga 12 with Glow-On sights

And now... A different type of firearm, a shotgun in steroids:

This specific firearm came equipped with fixed sights, to install a third party sighting system calls for extensive upgrades.
Just not what I wanted at the moment. so We used Glow-On on it.

Saiga 12 with Glow-On sights, III

Here's basically the finished product.
A lamp has been used to charge the sights and of course it's extremely intense.
After a few hours is going to be just fine, not too bright, a ghostly figure, visible enough to align a shot.

Glow-On will improve your aim while it helps your eyesight.

Glow-On will improve your aim while it helps your eyesight.

As eyesight ages, the transition between different illumination areas becomes harder with time.
Glow-On can help that transition

What's the trick to keeping the paint on the gun? I put some on my sp101 and waited 24 hours. Holstered it and carried about 1 hour. Pulled the gun out and the paint peeled off the front sight!

I alcohol washed all the application surfaces to ensure cleanness. All the guns I put it on had the paint peel off very easily. What am I doing wrong and how do you recommend fixing it?
