    Mary Kaye lady gave me some bright red-orange paint for my little LCP front sight. Came in a fancy little bottle. Works perfectly.

    Nail polish works great as a temporary fix. Just about anything you "paint" on to your sights will wear off. Best thing to do would be to invest in a set of good quality after market sights. My personal favorite would be Trijicon tritium night sights. They work great in any level of lighting.

  9. When the painted dot on the front site of my M&P fractured and fell out, it left quite a pocket. I decided to buy some glow-in-the dark powder, then I mixed it with clear nail polish and packed it in the hole. While it was still wet I dusted it with more powder. The results are mixed. By that I mean that in low level light it seems to be pretty darn good. In bright lighting, it has an off-white color and my old eyes would prefer a neon-green dot or plain bright white paint like the gun came with.

    With Halloween coming round its the perfect time to get some of the flourescent nail polishes. I tried a bright glowing orange for the front dot and it only seemed to work good for me during daylight hours. At dusk it kind of faded away and was hard to see.

    I use a bright white fingernail polish (on my sights of course) It works great, daylight is shows very well, in low light I can see the sights in any light I can identify a target in.

    As far as wear....I take it off and reapply every month or 2 while cleaning the pistol. Hoppes no 7 removes it easily.
