Go to an office supply store and buy a Gold color Sharpie.  Use it to paint the blade edge facing you.

 

Or measure the thickness of the front sight and buy a piece of brass stock the same thickness.  Remove the front blade and use it as a pattern to fashion a new front sight.

I use Krylon Metallic spray paint bright gold stuff and really lasts  and fantastic finish. Use it on all our sights R&P both. Just tape off the area and have at it & it dries very fast

If they still make those tiny bottles of paint for plastic model airplanes and cars, get a bottle of gold and a bottle of thinner.  Get a tiny brush.  It cleans up with regular thinner, too.  Keep it sealed, and it will last a long time.

   You've got plenty of options. If you have a few basic tools around, you can file out your exising rear sight to any width or shape that suits and cut off a piece of round brass stock, use your cut off tool to cut a groove in it and jb weld it to your front sight.

That's a cheap easy way to go.

   I always put a bigger brass sight on the guns I do if the customer wants and cut out the rear sight if they don't want to buy a buckhorn. Once you've got daylight on both sides of your front sight you're good to go.
