I’m looking to paint the sights on my lcp 2. I found sight paint but have read that most use nail polish. What holds up better. Thank you
Me personally, I have had better luck with nail polish. I make sure I clean the front sight with acetone first then alcohol. I have also found that you have a better variety of really loud colors to use.
Just my 2 cents.
The nail polish l have used has worn out fast. It’s better to use sight paint and I believe hobby paint like the one you use for models may work.
Nail Polish, make sure you clean the surface before appliying the polish.
Nail polish for sure. Hard As Nails works best, I use it on jig heads, fish poles and many other uses.
It comes with it’s own applicator and you can find them with very thin brush’s.
Wow! Talk about memories. Haven’t used Testor’s paint since I was building model cars and planes, 60 years ago!
Paint marker worked well for me
Day-glow Orange nail polish I picked up at the Dollar Store.
I have a Ruger GP100. I used “Sally Hansen” red nail polish on the front sight because Sally Hansen’s motto was “hard as nails” back in the day. It held up well with one application.
I finally bought a Hi Viz sight for my Ruger but still have the original sight. The nail polish still looks great too.
