Short and sweet: none of them work as you think they will.

Here, check this recent thread.

You'll find some good options but none of them are up to par IMO. BTW, search tool is all that's needed.

Night sights for the PF-9 are supposedly on the making.

Not helpful for night but put some neon yellow (back) and orange (front) finger nail polish from walgreens on. I believe the brand was Sinful Sensations or something like that. 2 coats of white polish then 2 coats of the neon. At $1.99 a bottle it was really cheap. It improved the pick up of the sights tremendously and look great in low light. Can also be removed easily if you want to change. Using a toothpick made the application pretty easy also

Glow paint would probably be useless because you need to "charge" it with light for it to glow in the dark, which it wont charge while concealed.

Correct! And also even blasting the paint with quality UV light the thing glowed for like 5 min strong and then by the end of 10 - 15min the glow was barely there. *:-/

The finger nail polish is a good idea, or just bright neon acrylic paint from any craft store plus a clear finger nail polish coat to seal also works well.

I used some flourescent orange ground marking spray paint on my rear sights. *I noticed that in bright light, they are better than the stock white, but in low light, the white was better. *Has anyone sucessfully removed the paint from their sights? *Should I just use a dab of paint thinner and repaint with white? *Or, should I just try and paint over the orange?
