    The white-dot front sight on my SA Loaded Combat gets dirty and turns brown. I bought a White-Out correction pen to put the white back in the dot. CLP and a toothbrush doesn't seem to clean it very well. Will be the White-Out pen become a permanent staple of my range bag?

    Any suggestions?

    I use household appliance touchup paint markers. They work pretty well and seem to outlast whiteout and testors. I still find
    myself adding a dab here n there every 500 rounds or so. but its way cheaper than having good sights installed. :)

    The brightest white nail polish you can find, very durable. It will last forever.

    I now uses Testors model paint on my SA Loaded. Found some very good applicators which fit the recessed portion of the front sight. I tried bright yellow and orange but the white shows up best. I have three-dot combat sights but I blacked out the rear sight dots for better contrast. I have trouble with focusing due to eye dominance and my contact lenses so getting rid of the rear dots helped significantly. Eventually want a 10-8 rear u-notch and a gold/brass bead front.

    the folks at patchworm sell a nifty glo paint made for gun sights.

    I have some 10-8 sights with a gold bead front and I have to say in certain lighting conditions it's perfect.

    But,in some indoor range facilities whose lighting is less than perfect,I wish I had gone with an XS dot (small) front sight.

    I put a drop of fluorescent yellow/green sight paint on the front sight vial. Much better for me.. Ron
