    Question: Glow in the dark gun sights. Will it glow all night long?

    Answer: Yes it will, a few users might contradict this statement. But somehow things have a way to prove themselves, just spill some Glow-On on your pajamas and you'll find out soon enough if it does glow all night long. It does [​IMG].
    Not only that, you are bound to find out that no mater how many times you wash your pajamas, the glow does not diminish with use.

    Of course the glow has a cycle, it starts very bright, it will almost illuminate your whole room. Then fades slowly, all, night, long.

    We ship via USPS. We ship every day except Sundays and Holidays.

    USPS delivery time in the USA usually takes 2-5 days.

    In rare occasions, packages get stuck in big distribution centers or get destroyed in route or are returned if the recipient doesn't have a mail box, etc.
    However this is a small percentage and we have been able to overcome all the limitations USPS has, by keeping communication with our customers and keeping tacking numbers.

    Thanks for the question.

    Small brushes seem useful when you start, but they tend to accumulate the solids inside the bristle and it becomes difficult to have a thin tip to work your gun sights.
    There is an easy and quick solution. All we need is a pair of scissors to cut the tip at an angle, like on the sequence that follows:

    Do you apply it over the stock white paint on the sight, or do your remove the white paint on the sight first? Thanks

    If the white paint is in good shape just apply a bead over it, just wipe it off with a paper towel and alcohol.
    You could remove the paint, if you wish. It's just a n extra step.

    Glow-On might not work for your project.
    There is usually enough illumination around vehicles to operate door locks and such.
    Glow-On is more of a solution for very, very dark places like your bedroom in the middle of the night, etc. TV remotes, alarms, light switches etc. are good candidates.

    If you still would like to try, I'd recommend you apply it where it's visible but it won't come into contact with your fingers.
    The paint feels dry to the touch, but it will take at least 24 hours for it to harden enough so it wont be accidentally removed.



    PM me and I'll send you a sample so you can see how it works, first hand experience is best. Your project is a "maybe it'll work" thing so I cannot in honesty charge you and guarantee it. If it is fishing lures, gun sights, or if you plan to use the self adhesive form on switches, alarms, remotes, etc. I guarantee you you'll be pleased with the results.

    Glow-On is a great product but it is not miraculous. It might not work for every project.

    if i seal the glow on with a clear coat or fingernail polish would it diminish the glow or the charging capacity?

    also not a question but more of a tip, i use to mess with alot of glowing things and also black lights. did you know that if you use a black light tube, bulb, or led. it will super charge any glowing material to the maximum. you as a company could make a good bit of money selling a small keychain with a small single led black light to "insta-charge" the sights to max. it takes less then the time of a cameras flash to charge them. it would also make your product even more "epic" for lack of a better word.

    The glow cycle can be repeated millions of time for a period of about ten years. 3-5 seconds of light exposure are enough to get you going
    When exposed to daylight the response is almost instantaneous. In fact the material is always glowing but its glow is only perceived when one moves to a shady area
    or one enters a building.

    I'm particularly partial to yellow and green, if you want to have a day color on your sights.
    That is, in daylight it looks yellow or green Vs. the greenish white which the Glow-On original shows.

    Yes, please calculate the price plus the shipping cost using our purchase page here .
    Choose the product you are interested in.
    click on the "add to cart" button and you'll be taken to the PayPal shopping cart.
    Enter your zip code and click "calculate"
    Now you know the total of the purchase.
    At the bottom of this page there is a PO Box address where to send your money order.[​IMG]

    Now, this is especially true for gun owners whom like us, have a collection of firearms:
    Glow-On is a must have for gun owners. If you have a number of firearms, chances are you'll find it helpful for things like a nocturnal varmint inventory liquidation program or such.
    Which, I'll say it, is hopefully the most action our firearms will see besides the gun range.[​IMG]

    Respectfully and generally speaking, things are expensive if one doesn't have them when one needs them.
    In other words, things that cannot be bought with money are expensive.

    However I throw this over the table for consideration:

    Considering one small vial will service more than two dozen guns, and, this is a conservative calculation.

    A bit of troubleshooting:[​IMG]
    -The paint was mixed well before I used it, the solids tend to go to the bottom.
    -Is the application thick enough? The dot on the cap of the vial is a good comparative point.
    - To remove the paint, the easiest way is to pry it off with a plastic tool, fork, utensil, etc (not metal as it will scratch the finish on your firearm).
    If the paint has been for a few months and it's very hard, use a cotton swab and a bit of nail varnish remover, touch the paint a couple of times. This will soften it and then rub it off. do this carefully, acetone will affect the finish on plastic pieces/parts of your gun and/or some finish. True blued finish will not be affected.

    From our website:
    For how long will it glow after full exposure?

    Full charge can be achieved in a few seconds under a small LED flashlight.
    Under daylight, this happens almost instantaneously.
    Under daylight, Glow-On constantly emits and reflects light, making the transition from illuminated to dark areas very smooth.

    The afterglow duration time is 1200 minutes until decay is complete (as tested at the laboratory).
    This means the phosphorescent activity ends completely at that time. To the human eye it is perceptible 5-7 hours, depending on individual sensitivity.




    The initial glow is very bright, brighter than tritium, and it starts to decay slowly for hours. If you have good night vision (natural human eye adaptation to the dark) the glow will be clearly perceived by you all night long, even if it is faint.
    A couple of seconds under a led flashlight will revive the glow to its fullest.
    This cycle can be repeated millions of times during the life of the product which is about ten years.

    Dude. 18 shipped for the double sized bottle plus the orange coloring. That's a pretty sick deal I think. I ordered mine. Excited to get it. Bought brite sights paint (non glowing) at my local range. Stuff is garbage. We will see how it compares.
