First of all what kind of problem?
Maybe paint a Flo. Orange on it, or take it to a gunsmith and see what they suggest.
If they suggest new sights let them do the installing.

Problem I'm having is seeing the white dot regardless if sunny or cloudy.

Hey Eric,

I have the same problem .

I take flourescent orange craft paint , use a toothpick, just touch a tiny drop,right in the center of the white dot.
Let it dry, then coat it with clear nail polish. Holds up good.

I also do the rear dots in flo green, nice easy to see contrast, and very cheap.
If and when it wears off, just redo.

Thank you to those who have replied. I think I might try to paint the dot on the front sight and see how that will work.

Thanks
Eric

What's on it now? I put Williams' Fire Sights (fiber-optics) on my MKII. A BIG improvement over the stock factory sights. I like the Trijicon night sights that came on my Sig a lot too. I know a guy with a combo fiber-optic/tritium night sight on a 1911, Looks great, I want that for my 1911.

I painted the white dot with fluorescent green paint and it worked out great at the range yesterday.

Thanks again for the help

Ruger's accessory section has Novak green fiber optic front sights. I have one on order, interested in seeing how I like it. I have a red fiber optic on my SP101 and it's a big improvement over factory. Don

DonnieD, I seen they had that, let me know how you like it. Since the paint worked out I've been thinking about ordering that sight.

Just last yesterday I received GLOW-ON (Phosphorescent Gun Sights Paint). I ordered it through Amazon, came in two days by mail. Applied it to my SR40C last night. Now my sights have a glow. At just a hair over $10.00. I now have a decent night sight.

Sorry to tell you Eric but I looked at the sight in the daytime and found it disappointing. Much less bright than the red one I have on the SP101. I like the stock sights better but that wouldn't have been the case if the green Novaks were as eye attracting as the SP101s are.

Sending it back, win some loose some. Don
