View Full Version : Paint on M&P Night Sights?

Yesterday when I was shooting my M&P9c the front suddenly got harder to see. I thought it was just dirty but when I got home I discovered the white ring around the tritium capsule was gone. Looking more closely it appears the white rings are just paint. Is that correct?

If so, what type of paint could I use to put the ring back on the front sight. Conversely, what could I use to take the paint off the rear sight to de-emphasize those rear dots?

Thanks for your help.

The paint isn't gone, it's just covered by the residue from firing the gun. Take a q-tip, dip it in solvent (Shooter's Choice, even CLP will probably work), and rub it into the tritium capsule. With a minute's effort, your white ring should reappear.

Thanks Todd, that did the trick.

I covered up the white rings on the rear sight with a little black paint and will try shooting with that set up next time out.
