Chief Rick Posted November 6, 2011 Share Posted November 6, 2011 Need some clarification please. I seem to remember a big discussion several months ago in regards to painting the rear surface of the front sight. If I remember correctly, white was an acceptable color to paint the rear surface of the front sight - but I can't find that thread. Shooters Handbook states: Sights must look like sights available during the cowboy erabead, blade, simple post, orotherwise approved front sights (such as the XS Cowboy Express) made of materials such as steel, iron, ivory, faux ivory, brass, gold, pewter, copper, or silver are allowed. Colors other than those of the materials referenced above or any fluorescent materials may not be applied to either front or rear sights. Rear and front sights may be blacked painted, or plated in the colors of the previously listed materials. If blacking, paint, or plating is applied to a revolver front sight, it must cover the entire rear surface of the sight to give the appearance of a solid material. Edit to add - I am specifiaclly asking about revolver sights. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
