    My Lightning Bug Night Sight

    Simple, but effective...

    What makes it glow?
    Don't mind me, I'm just making sure I'm on all of the watch lists.

    Hello,

    It's phosphorescent. I didn't want to play with anything radioactive, safe though it may be.

    There are some new phosphorescents out that are exposed briefly to light and glow for a while. This is one of them.

    Regards,

    Josh

    Thanks, that's what I figured. I like it; simple is good.

    Ive been eying the front site for my T53 from you. Any plans for a rear peep like the clickwheel version(cant think of brand off hand)? It mounts where the rear sight normally does and is adjustable. I know you have the one that hoes on the cocking knob.

    Hello,

    No, nothing will be going on the rear sight. Too far forward. A rear sight-mounted peep sight defeats the purpose.

    I'm playing with an idea that uses a cantilever off of the rear sight to bring the peep closer to the eye, but that could be a while off.

    Regards,

    Josh
