I alway paint my iron sights on my over/under and pistols. Has anyone every painted their Iron Sight posts or do they have drop in posts I can screw in to replace OEM post on the front sight??
Thanks for any assistance guys! Really excited to be a beginner again and learn all about this amazing weapons system!
i do a lot of precision shooting with irons on my rock river arms national match ar15. i hit the front sight with flat black model paint and a coat of flat lacquer. when shooting precision with irons on a rifle you want the least shiny blackest black you can get. it will stand out on paper at a longest distance and flatness prevents shine which will distort your sight picture.
if your rifle is hunting or self defense you want the opposite. you want to pick up the sights fast and being off a little from glare you get off a colored sight does not matter
two different tasks
