I have this one from a pistol.
Originally a Ghost style sight, the upper part was removed and the inner ring painted.

So, what colors would work best that will work both indoor and outdoor?

Thanks
It depends on the firearm and purpose.
Glow-On basically put some glow capabilities on your sights and in the case of Glow-On colors,some color to add a bit of contrast to the sights as well.
We recommend yellow or green as they are the best balance between day color and glow capabilities. Not much glow at the range because there is light however dim.

Recommended uses for the glow: A quick scan of , backyards, barns, home, stalk vermin, etc.

We recommend the small vial unless you have a batch of things to do like fishing spoons and such. Small vials are not famous for keeping paint fresh.

If you have any questions or comments you can reach us at our website message system.



Is Glow-On the best overall solution for gun sights?

Frankly I wont say this is better solution than anything else on the market.
Basically there's a place and time for everything under the sun, for example:

Fiber optics, are great capturing light, nothing does a better job, but they are worthless in the dark, affordable but, not every firearm will accept them.

Tritium, is great for the dark, widely used by special forces, it's the best there is for stalking. Not every firearm will accept them, they're costly.

Nail polish paint or Testors model paint: Several bright colors available, it's affordable, good contrast, NO GLOW.

Lasers, great solution, work on batteries, great at the range, not so great on moving targets, eyes have the bad habit of following the laser not the moving target.

Red dots, great for any situation, they're fast and very reliable, widely used by the armed forces. Can be very expensive, bulky and not eery firearm will accept them.

No doubt there's more but life is short, so, salute.

I don't really want to put nail polish on my brand new gun.

Has anyone in SE Connecticut tried this?? If so Please PM me. I'm willing to pay for an hour of range time just to look down the sights of your gun.

The original white dots stay, the glow-On is applied on top of it.
If you remove it later, you'll still have the white dots.

At the range the glow won't show much, unless the lights go off.
Or, if the barrel gets hot, the heat activates the glow, not as well as light does but it does.

Note I know lots of folks are fond of red paint. Red tends to recede, doesn't reflect much light, in a black and white photo red looks black.
Red is OK in uniforms
Yellow or green are better, the human eye is naturally attracted to these colors.

You put the self adhesive directly under the lamp right above the mirror in your bathroom. When you turn the light off, there's still light, (green) she's going to love that one.

If you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night ( for the guys that have a bathroom in the master bedroom) you can safely turn the light off, open the door again without annoying your partner and slip into bed safely.
