Just fired my P-32 and had a hard time seeing the sights. Any recommendations for how to paint the sights white for maximum visibility? What should I use and how do I use it?

I have not painted my P32 sights but have added a touch of white paint to the front blade on my 38 Special. I used a tiny "sample" jar of paint you can get at any hardware/big box store. They usually include a small brush (secured to the lid) and you might want a paper towel handy to blot any excess paint. The tiny brushes and Testors model paint jars should work fine too.

TESTORS brand model paint in Fluorescent Orange is quite durable and costs about $1.50.

Most commercial "nail polish" purchased in the Beauty and Care section is also an enamel, very much like the model paint only a lot more expensive. However, sometimes around just after Halloween you can get orange nail polish on sale for cheap.

I myself am out and about some after dark, but this works wonders during the day too as the back end of your slide is at least several hundred times bigger then your front sight.

I took some GlowOn sight paint, and painted the entire back end of my P32's slide. You will probably never be able to aquire that tiny little dot of a front sight in any serious social situation anyway, and mousegun/pistol ranges are often at arm's length or shorter and out to 3-4 yards at best.

Just bring the gun up and fill your target with that little white image that now should resemble the front end of a tiny white barn, and you will be on target far better and faster then trying to line up on that little white dot.

In the dark, after some serious bright light shown on said paint, that bright large glow is almost spooky easy to aquire a target with.

Just a thot that works wonders for aiming my P-32 in the proverbial New York Minute and mine goes everywhere legal to carry as a bug or primary.

Here's my version of a day glo front sight. Used finger nail polish. It's been going strong for about two years of daily carry.

That pictured gun looks brand new. Being it's two years-old and used everyday, I expected to see the beginnings of wear on it.
What do you use for the exterior-finish?
