Sight colour

Post by chopper on 9/15/2018, 9:54 pm

I was shooting irons the other day and the sun light was bothering me bad and I didn't have anything to blacken my sight with me. I was wondering if anyone uses just plain old flat black paint instead of sight black paint. I usually just fire up the acetylene side of my welding torch and use that at home.

I've heard of them, but where would you get one.

Hey, those are pretty nice. Thanks for showing me that, it would eliminate being extra careful when boxing and unboxing my 2 guns.

Birchwood-Casey Sight Black
I used to use a carbide burner but got tired of messing with it.
Bought a 1 1/2oz. can Sight Black at Perry, works great.

Also comes in pen form that makes it easy to pack for, and touch up while at, the range.

the sight black will build up if you don't clean it off once in a while, 

doesn't affect me, I am not that good, 
however know a few masters that use it and stopped in highpower,  and went back to carbide, 

or go old school, and keep a plastic spoon in the range bag

I use a flat black dry erase marker. Easy to use, and convenient to store in the pistol box. Cleans off as easy as it goes on.
