Glow-on phosphorous paint for sights

Light em up and they glow. My cz75b came with something like this, but these are much brighter.

I also used it on several of my kids things,remotes,etc.. :D

The pic is of my xd40sc. Well worth the price to me! :cool:

Spooky, just in time for Halloween.:D

Look good. How long does it remain bright?

I shine the 300lumen light on it for a few seconds and it stays lit up for a few minutes, so you need to keep recharging it.

If in the middle of the night I can zap them and go about my search through the house if need be.

They're not tritium night sights, but they're not $100+ either. I think they're cool. :cool:

But if you have to flash them with your 300 lumen flashlight before taking action you've lost time and you can kiss your night vision goodbye. Unless you like closing your eyes, turning your head and giving yourself away as the boogie man approaches. Just sayin.....

I'll just paint my eyelids and run at them with glowing eyes. :)

Careful you don't freak out those small horses you call dogs. They could stampede.

You just leave your gun over the table, wake up at three or four o'clock when your night vision is on, or in other words when your eyes are adapted to dark, and Wham! your Glow-on sight are working, that is why they're called "night sights". think of it this way, you wake up in the dark , wondr what time it is pick your Rolex from your side table and check the time, that is hat is how Glow-On works:cool:

Just like anything else it takes some training to achieve efficiency.

Comparing it to anything else ) I never do, apples are apples, pears are pears) is like comparing a knife o a machete, they both cut, but they are used in a different manner.

Tritium won't either glow even if you beg for it, in the presence of light, and you can neither charge it to be this bright if you need it to be. Or can you put it on your remotes like Gojubrian stated or can you go fishing with it, or can you paint your fingernails if you are bored.

Nest my latest customization:

The orange dots we are testing for "day" sights, charge in a fraction of a second and the luminescent although very bright last a couple of minutes,
members of this forum who want to have a free sample of the dots, just PM me and let me know if they use 1/8" dots or 1/16"dots on their sights.

So basically in the dark the green color is the one that works,
during the day the hi performance orange plus the green secure your target acquisition.

Live long, live free Gatopardo.

Would be most excellent for a G22. :cool:
