I have a marlin 30 AW , shoot open sites whats the best color to dab on the front bead to make it show up better . Thanks DJ
+1, I just use whatever nail polish the wife or daughter has handy. One time it was black, that doesn't work as well at the brighter colors... Seemed like a good idea late one Friday nite, but Saturday at the range I was all like "what the hell?"roboskittle said:Try different colors. I have seen red, white, neon green, neon orange, pink, yellow. Give them all a shot and see what is best for your eyes. I have never really used anything but white or yellow myself but it can make the sight disapear if the sun hits it just right.
I covered my S&W sights with a black permanent marker.burk said:I favor black, it nearly always seems to hold it's shape and contrast, even in low light. S&W and other orange front site inserts tend to disappear in strong light but my old Ithaca deer slayer plastic orange complete front site was the best ever next to my little mauser barleycorn pyramid front sight that always seems to show up.
That's the way to go if you can afford it! So many advantages over non illuminated sights in low light situations and dark targets.LuckenbachTexas said:Buy a tritium front sight and be done with it. I'm sure with all the selections one can be found.
