Ruger MkIII 22/45 Sights

Hey, I've had my 22/45 for nearly a year now, and I love it. My only question is does anyone know of lower profile sights for it? I saw the Hi-Viz fiber optics, but I'm not sure I want to shell out $60 on sights for a plinker.

Alternately, is there an easy way to add dots to the sights that are already on it? Obviously they won't be glow-in-the-dark, but just a trio of dots to line up is easier than black-on-black against a black silhouette on a paper target.

Just paint the front sight with floresent orange paint. I did that to my fixed sight M-64 and it makes a world of difference. The front sight just jumps right at you every time you pick up the gun.

Having said that, I put a Red dot optic sight on my MK III 22/45. Really like it.

I'll have to give that a try. Thanks.

And I thought about a red dot, but I'd rather spend that money on another handgun in a more useful caliber.
