    A simple way to create custom gun sights on plain irons.

    http://glow-on.com/purchase.html

    There is beauty in simplicity.
    All it takes is two drops of Glow-On.

    First, clean the surface with 95% alcohol...
    Don't use diesel or oil.

    Just load the wooden stick generously, deposit one big fat drop of paint on the front and one on the rear.
    Make sure they are centered in the X/Y axis.

    30 mins into the drying time, the Glow-On has the consistency of soft putty, now we can "flatten" the sights a bit with the side of a blade so that it can catch the light uniformly.
    Now we have two small circles.

    At this point, if it doesn't look perfect to you, just rub the paint off, clean with alcohol and try again.
    Let it dry for a couple of hours, apply a couple of layers of transparent nail polish of good quality. Avoid UV filtering clear coats. This stuff 'eats'light.
    The whole thing will cure in a few days.

    Here is the progression:

    Glow-On absorbs light and then it releases it for a period of several hours, in fact, all night long if you know what you are doing.


    This is during daylight






    Nighttime.

    This is really the simplest, easiest way to put glow markings on your gun.


    A small vial 10.00
    A medium vial is 2x as big for just 15.00
    A large vial is 4x as big for just US 20.00

    Simple solutions are always the best.
    Things that won't spill, won't break and will last for a long time...

    If you have several pieces with pain iron sights or standard white dots, this is the best way to upgrade them in one move.
