$3.47 for .90 fl oz of glow in the dark acrylic. My cam won't pick up the glow but trust me, it works. Drop some of this in my lettering & sights.
Where did you buy the paint? Also what color?

How did it come out?
Im satisfied. It surely beats paying $100+ for night sights. I rather spend $100 on ammo than sights I may or may not use for the purpose they are made.

I can see this working if you go from light to dark, but if you're woke up in the middle of the night you'll have to put it under light to charge the paint back up.

+ one on that! It says can be recharged by exposing to light. So unless you go from light to dark in a instant I don't think it'll work. It's pretty much the same thing on watch hands! And my watch needs a lot of light to charge it.

So I took my Glock out the lock box with lights off to see if it glows. Barely! Not good enough to actually call it a night sight as in home defense in middle of night. Ya may wanna have a flash light handy. As far as outside at night, it works a lil better, but still not a night sight. I have 1 more trick up my sleeve though. TBC.....

Well, you might be able to install a light in the lock box, with an outside switch, it only takes a few seconds to charge them. If you had a bit of warning that is.

This is true. It takes about 2 or 3 secs.

Higher end glow paint (specifically made for guns) takes a charge quicker and glows longer. I hate to say it (but it is from experience) but when it comes to glow paint, you really do get what you pay for. I used a product called Glow-On and it catches a charge in the time it takes for me to reach into my safe (lit by LED's when opened) and pull it out. It'll last long enough to clear my house. If I put my Surefire on it for the 2 additional seconds it takes me to get to my bedroom door, it'll last a 1/2hr or more.
