i made a post yesterday concerning my new P3AT and included a pic of the fluorescent sights i painted on myself. a number have commented on the sights so i thought i'd make a post on the sights alone. first off, i know others have made posts concerning paiting sights with fluorescent paint. to give credit where credit is due, i read up on a number of posts here and at other websites before partaking of this venture to get ideas. i've attached a pic of the sights and the materials necessary. really easy to do if you take your time and are willing to give it two, three, or ten tries till you get it just right! all you need are testors fluorescent green and orange acrylic paints and a fine-tipped hobby brush. i bought all this at wal-mart in the models aisle. i used some borrowed nail polish remover from my neighbor to clean the brush and remove any paint from the sights if i wasn't satisfied with the look. to make life easier, UNLOAD the gun and break it down to take the slide off. much easier to handle and paint when you're dealing with the slide alone. for the front sight i used the orange. after trial and error i found that getting a good dab on the very tip worked best and simply pressing down in the indention on the front sight to fill it in with paint. getting this right didn't take too long. for the rear sights i tried painting in the entire sight window first but found it too distracting for my tastes. i like things to look clean and refined. so, i settled for two dots placed just right on either side of the rear sight notch. again, get a decent dab of paint on just the tip of the brush and "dot" each spot. don't brush anything. this might take a few tries to get it just right if you're picky. most definitely makes acquisition and aim MUCH easier!
