That's a baseline bigg'un around here, but the only one I have a pic of. My kayak-driving son caught some serious monsters this past season. On my gear, of course!

Any other paints you have used that maybe better?
Check glow-on.com , I got me some it only cost me $15.00 and it is plenty visible and enough for a lot of guns or fishing lures as the advertise on their website.
Just be careful how you apply it or your hands are gonna look very funny glowing when you go to bed.

Check this out , got something named glow-on super fluorescent from glow-on.com, is a creamy stuff, when it dries is very solid, it was really easy to put a small dot and a U shape on the sights of my mosin nagant, now the unexpected plus was when the old rifle got hot after about 20 rounds ( 7.62x54 mind you) the front sight was extra glowy.
Put some on my fishing lures, night fishing someone ? worked as advertised

Hmmm... poor man's tritium sights. I may have to look into that.

Have some tritium, the glow is barely there.
Anyways my problem is to align the three dots all the time and the tritium part is so small it makes it harder under dark conditions, illumination is bad in some range lines. So i came withthis solution:

On the tritium sights I added glow-on self adhesive on the back, (a square u shape around the notch) and a small circle of glow-on pigment around the front sight (over the white little circle around the tritium), apply my small flashlight for 5 seconds and proceed to put a nice group at 15 yards .

It looks like a small o inside a sqaure more or less it helps a lot, and the green looks almost electric, my two cents.

I'm not all that big a fan of the three dot sight so if I have one that I"m going to paint up I'll do it more like the Straight 8 sights. It's much easier (for me) to stack two than line up three. I squire a sight picture much faster.

That jig head paint does well well BTW. I bought a pistol a while back that used it. I used the Testers model paint as well. I don't liek nail polish as it just never looks right to me being most that stuff has more a gloss finish that I like. It seems there was an ad on another forum I used to go to called nightsighters or something like that. They where stick on things. I have never used those though and can't speak on their quality.
