    Ordered placed through eBay. Marked as shipped rather quickly! Looking forward to seeing how it works out.

    A ultra bright glow in the dark sight paint. Its awesome stuff as a night sight alternative.

    I know it seems a strange and empty post. Surprised there were any responses. I was actually actually working at the time and was interrupted; had to deal with something immediately. Sorry folks!

    Yes, its basically glowing sight paint. From what I see and read, it works very well. I am looking forward to using it, but, its actually segway toward buying actual night sights for my EDC and as primary sight paint on some older rifles.

    I'll post some before and after pics if anyone is interested.

    I have the orange/ green kit. I like it.

    the orange glow doesn't last very long but I have used it to enhance the front sight on pretty much all my weapons. the green lasts longer and is brighter for the first minutes after charging but I used the orange because its easier to see in light.

    Bonehead, thanks for input. I considered other colors but, to be honest, the paint colors looked odd to me; as though they could be difficult to use during the day, perhaps even at dusk. Based on your experience with Orange, what do you think?

    I think the orange is good. in daylight or indoor range light, it stands out and makes the front sight easy to pick up. I wouldn't use it for a "night sight" application because it dies in like 45 seconds but its perfect for improving an iron sight.

    (_l_) vs (_l_)

    I would buy it again and do all my firearms with it.

    I am not scared of putting it on because it will scrub off with non acetone fingernail polish remover.

    Thanks again. This is really helpful information. I planned on trying some on the iron sites of my sks.

    Well, here are some pictures. So far, I am somewhat impressed, it glows extremely bright. My only concern is practicality. But, I'll give it a few days before I pass further, or final, judgement to see how it does. I am happy with it so far though. $uploadfromtaptalk1355465034556.jpg $uploadfromtaptalk1355465063385.jpg

    I just ordered some last Thursday and received it Saturday. That's a damn fast turn around if you ask me!! Anyway applied it to my Xdm 9 and it was so easy. From what I read it takes a week to "fully cure" and after that point is when it reaches it's full luminescence. Even if that's the case I'm already thoroughly impressed with how bright it is. The other thing I noticed is that for me it actually increased the stock sight picture quite a bit. So all in all if they say it gets brighter after a week I'm pumped because its been almost 2 days and I love it!!!
