Good morning, hope you can give me an idea...
I just picked up my first SG, an 870 Police 18" with rifle sights. I am having a hard time seeing the front sight. It has the white dot. Do you know of any way to brighten this up? Fluorescent paint? I can't afford tritium at this time, but there's got to be something to help this problem.

Thanks folks -Coop

Testor's Enamels work for me. I use either yellow or white.

You can get day glow paint sold by various manufacturers specifically for front sights.

Better yet for about 20 bucks or so you can get a fiber optic sight that snaps on the barrel which works great. The fiber optic is long and wide enough to glow with indoor light as well.
