I'm looking for a durable "paint" to paint my front sight white, for faster acquisition of my front sight in CQB settings.

Any suggestions????

What color are you trying to paint it?

I just use flat black spray paint to crisp up my site picture. It darkens up the front post and site ears. Just a couple of blasts every few months while i'm out shooting.

The best thing I've found is the Bright Sights paint that comes in little jars. The stuff is like $5.00 for a tiny jar but the jar will probably last a lifetime.

I have used other paints to try to touch up my sights but they didn't hold up, or got dirty too quick, or just flaked off.

I like the Bright Sights stuff because it is nice and thick, which makes application much easier... use a toothpick to put a fat bead of it in the 3-dot sights, and it's indistinguishable from a factory job. Also, the stuff is very glossy so it repels dirt, and it stays put without flaking off.

I have also used the Testors model white paint to fill in the front dot on my 45s. It stands up to Hoppes and other solvents fairly well....ECS

Cuz tritium don't help during daylight ya bad speller.

I'm wanting to paint it WHITE because the front dot is unacceptably small, and when I've been doing some practice / self-training, I noticed extra fractions of a second ticking away while I'm trying to pick up the front sight blade, and therefore proper sight alignment.

Paint it with a flat white paint, then paint over that with a flourescent orange. You won't believe how well the front sight will stand out.
