Well I hope it holds up, I think it will.. And if not, I'm not out anything but a little bit of time.

I like little tricks like that. Look forward to seeing how it holds up.

Just wondering how it does on the white targets in USPSA or IDPA.

I did my muzzle loader years ago when I built it. I used testers model paint fluorescent green and orange. Still looks good.

Try a different color, like red or light green, on the rear sight.

Makes it faster to line up, and keeps the rear sight in view when

you lose your depth of field aiming.

The white primer under the new color helps bring out the contrast of

the second color.
