Gun Sights

Official Statement

The owners of Glow Inc. support the legal and responsible ownership of weapons by both law                                               enforcement and citizens.  In                                               the unfortunate scenario where                                               there is a need to discharge a                                               weapon, improved accuracy lowers                                               the probability of injury to an                                               innocent bystander.  We feel                                               that phosphorescent paint is a                                               vital component of increasing this                                               accuracy in dark environments.                                                Your typical criminal will not                                               take the effort or pay the cost to                                               apply phosphorescent paint to his                                               weapons.  Therefore, we                                               believe that making this                                               information available is for the                                               good of the community and                                               hopefully will save a few innocent                                               lives.

Glow in the dark paint is a                                               great way to improve nighttime                                               visibility of rifle and gun                                               sights.  As with any weapon                                               addition, we encourage you to                                               educate yourself regarding the                                               performance of the product in                                               different situations.  We                                               encourage you to use the                                               information on our website and to analyze the weapon for                                               several days in different lighting                                               conditions so that you know what                                               to expect regardless of the                                               environment.

The only paint that we                                               recommend using on a weapon is                                               Ultra Green Glow in the Dark                                               Paint.  It is literally the                                               brightest glow in the dark paint                                               available anywhere.  After                                               charging from a bright light                                               source, it will glow reasonable                                               bright for about an hour.  It                                               will continue to glow, albeit                                               dimly, for another 6-10 hours.

An officer will typically enter                                               lighted rooms throughout his                                               shift, so the glow product                                               performs well under these                                               conditions.

On the other hand, if your                                               gun is in a dark locked box and                                               you remove it at 2am in the dark,                                               then your sights will not be                                               visible.

Painting Techniques for Guns                                               and Rifles

We suggest a 3 layered painting                                               technique for optimum performance.                                                If your gun or rifle has a clean gloss                                               white paint on the sights, then you                                               can leave it there and move on to                                               the glow layer instructions.

Remove all paint from the site                                               area, clean thoroughly and allow                                               to dry.

Add a base layer of bright                                               white, high gloss paint.  I                                               suggest inexpensive nail                                               polish, but any solvent or water                                               based acrylic will work.                                                Allow the paint to dry between                                               every layer.

Add a layer or more of Ultra                                               Green Glow in the Dark Paint.

Coat with a sealer layer of                                               clear solvent-based paint without                                               any UV filtering additives.                                                Once again, I suggest                                               inexpensive clear nail polish.                                                Some people opt for the more                                               advanced clear coat that is                                               manufactured to be resistant                                               to gun cleaning solution.

Properly painted, the glow                                               properties should last over 10                                               years with nominal degredation.
