Has anyone have 'glow in the dark' sights? on their 24/7 pro? What about glow in the dark paint on the factory dots?

There have been numerous posts on other forums re glow-in-the-dark paints and the verdict is unanimous: they are worthless.

I tried it (a glow paint specifically marketed for gun sights) and they are right - worthless.
The paint will glow brightly for a few minutes if you place them under a bright light, but quickly dim from "glow" to "barely see".

For night sights, tritium is the only way to go. For brighter day sights some of the plastic light-pipe style sights are good. Otherwise, use model paint or nail polish in some light or bright color.

neon yellow,pink, and green fingernail polish seems to work best. It doesnt last long if you rub on it a lot but its cheap and easy to re-apply
