GITD sights?


September 22, 2010, 12:22 PM
Ok I know about tritium and other methods of illumination. Has anyone tried glow in the dark paint with any success? this place claims theirs lasts about 10 years and is visibly glowing for 12 hours after a 10 min charge.

I was looking in to it a while back but ended up with a red dot instead. Now I'm considering it again and wondering if anyone has tried it.

I wouldn't want to hold a flashlight on my sights for 10 minutes every night, I'd rather pony up the $ for tritium and not worry about it for 7-10 years.

pistol or rifle, like a good friend of mine says: "Go with the glow" ( he tried the pigment at Lake Erie for deep fishing with great success), super phosphorescent that is:), the pigment charges with any light source in seconds, actually you don't have to mes with it at all, just needs darkness.

Another plus, the pigment is already mixed, dries to a permanent weather proof material, you could use it on fishing lures and such.

They also send in the basic package some stick ons, so guys who like the U shape rear sight design can just do that if they please

Here some photos:

Save your money, I have tried the paint and the dots. Unless you sleep with a flashlight on your gun, after a half hour there is no glow. You will be better off "depending on the weapon", just putting on a front night site. It will cost you a few bucks more, but will work all the time. You can pick up a trijicon front site for around 35 dollars on most websights that sell parts. They install easy,unless it's site that is built in like a revolver. But there are ways to deal with that also. If you call the company, Trijicon and describe what weapon you are talking about, they will be of great help. If it's a glock or glock type pistol, the sites come right off with the included hex tool. It's the rear one thet is more difficult, if you are new to installing them. I used the paint on my "remotes for the tv", works great for that, the glow fades about the same time I do.
