I would love to see a picture when you get one.
Just make sure you don't expose the Brote Sights to solvent and oil for any length of time. They are good but not permanent and you may find yourself having to touch-up them up periodically. An option are the nitesiters - www.nitesiters.com. They stay put especially with a toothpick of superglue applied to the sides. Solvent and oil has not effect on them.PaLCP said:I just wanted to tell everyone on this board that I bought some orange sight paint from Bright Sights for my LCP's front sight and it made a big difference. You have to ensure you clean the area very well (I used rubbing alcohol) and used 3 thin coats rather than 1 thick one. I used one of those very thin art brushes you get in the arts & crafts section of Walmart. Rather than put a dot, I simply painted the front sight "ramp" area, similar to Smith & Wesson's "Red Ramp sights on some of their snubnose revolvers).
Will post a picture when I get a chance.
First off welcome to the site. Of all the white touch up paints, I have found that applicance touch-up paint seems to hold up a little better.huzzah said:Any white paint touched up once in a while works fine. Used that trick over 40 years ago when I **** hunted at night using a pistol
I got appliance paint from Ace Hardware, pretty spendy, close to $7. However, should do all the sights for all my weapons for the rest of my life And I agree about it being better, I've tried to rub the paint off with Hoppes #9, took quite a bit of effort. I sure like being able to see the sights now! With your Nitesighters Rich, how long do they glow before you have to shine more light on them?kraigster414 said:First off welcome to the site.

According to their site they should be visible for about 5 hours.With your Nitesighters Rich, how long do they glow before you have to shine more light on them?
