View Full Version : Front sight highlight

August 8, 2007, 10:13 PM
I was thinking about modding the front sight on my 22.It's blurry and hard to see so I thought I'd highlight it with some finger nail polish or something.

Any suggestions?The gun is a mossberg 702 plinkster and the front sight is hooded which isn't a problem.

If it's hooded, painting the sight likely won't help since it'll be in shadow and the paint will not show up.

A good sight paint is model airplane paint.
It comes in small, inexpensive bottles, and in virtually any color you could want.

Some colors to experiment with:
Fluorescent Red. Apply a base coat of gloss white first to serve as a reflector coat and make the paint really stand out.
Bright Green. Bright Green is actually the most visible color.
Bright Yellow.
