If you're talking about Glo-On, It's paint.

Did you watch the video on the site? The rear site he uses a adhesive backed stick on ribbon cutout and keeps it on with clear nail polish.

Not only seen the video, I've used it on two guns. They must be talking about the other product they have. I just used the paint.

Glow in the dark paint is not a new product, though.

Was the OP asking for a new product or something to paint his sights with?

What worked for me was a pure white undercoat and the brightest orange fingernail polish from Walmart. This works remarkably well since the white undercoat makes the color brighter and it has not faded. The good part is acetone and a couple of minutes it can be removed and renewed or changed to another configuration.

I have used fingernail polish before but it always faded away. However, adding the while first coat made all the difference and it was cheap and easy.

Have fun.
