The Novak tritium front sight I have on my Nighthawk needs to be whitened up. Through lots of use and cleaning, the white stuff that holds in the tritium vial has been eaten/worn away and I'd like to bring it back to bright and new. What should I use? Thanks.

I'd try a little bit of cheap bathtub caulking.

White crayon works good and is a nice temporary solution.

You could try one of those little bottles of auto paint they use for scratches.

I use testers model paint and get the neon set. You can choose whatever nice bright color you'd like and if you paint your front and rear different, it seems like you can pick up the sights a lot faster.

I filled in the stamping on my ar lower with crayon about a year ago and it's still there. Plus you can have fun with coloring books if you buy crayon!

I borrowed some white nailpolish from my sister for my TT front sight. Applied it with a toothpick. Has held up for about 6 months so far.

I used liquid paper, other wise known as white out.
