fitting of Trijicon night sights is not perhaps too
feasable on the R9s. Forum
material on that subject.
One alternative I have tried to improve sighting when
there is some light, is application of ''Bright Sights''
high visibility paint. I obtained mine from Charlie
Parrott who is the maker of the Smart
The ideal for use of this paint would be to have small
machined ''dimples'' already in the foresight and rear
sight shoulders ..... though I doubt this will be practical
from a production point of view. It would though permit
the paint to sit in a recess and so be protected and
more uniform in shape. Quite a few semi autos do have
this provision, often coming with white dots already
applied (Hi Power Practical for example).
The pictures here just show how the sights look - mainly
for reference as well as perhaps being useful for prospective
purchasors to see. The last one is showing the effect
of paint application. I used the tip of a tooth pick
for the job - the paint is thick and it is best to simply
transfer one small ''blob'' on the toothpick point to
the area of chosen application. Preliminary local degreasing
is essential for a good key.
I chose to use green for rear and yellow for front -
orange and red are also available I believe. In practice,
once fully dry and cured, this paint has been very resistant
to carry and thus far is still present.

Bright Sights paint to aid sight picture aquisition.
This was applied by hand and was not quite as
tidy as the pic' shows but close to it .... a
bit of digital cleaning up makes it look better.
