How are all you shooters who still use iron sights blackening your sights? Gil Hebard used to sell carbide sight blackeners years ago but I no longer see them listed.

Thanks in advance for your inputs

Bic lighter most of the time. But only if there's no breeze.

while I've still got my carbide smoker, I've used Birchwood Casey sight black, burned target pasters, masking tape, and bic lighters.

For simplicity sake I just use the bic lighter now, I just leave a small one in my gun box all the time.

There is the convenience factor of the sprays but nothing is blacker than carbide..  Champion's Choice has the Ray Vin tool..
