Played all day with my pistol today and was wondering if anyone has painted the sights with sight paint? If you have what colors did you use.? I just had a heck of a time with sighting targets with the fog and the factory white paint being dull. I played allot of speedball today and waisted many great opportunities to get some good hits by waisting time looking for the white on the sight. I was hoping that the bright gun sights would help me track faster.

Try and use a color that won't blend in with the most possible cover choices. Something neon colored might work, depending.

How'd it work for you? I'm sure it was an improvement. Do you need to reapply every so often?

Go to a fishing tackle shop and get some lure and jig finish. I got some from Bass Pro Shops to paint the sights on my t8 it has lasted 2 years so far with no need to reapply. It comes in bright colors I got yellow.

Wow thanks I didn't even think of that!! I've been fishing for years and used that stuff all the time. Jeez :facepalm: Guess I'll pick some up looks like my stuff is all dried up.

Thanks :tup:
