    I am wondering if anyone has a good recommendation for a paint to put on tip of the sight's of a P3AT (parkenized)?

    Thanks.

    Cheaper than that and easier to get your hands on - fingernail polish. A zillion colors. and down the road cheap (or maybe already in your bathroom).

    Will remove easily with a acetone soak if you want to change them or remove them This is the time-honored way of doing this for decades.

    DO NOT waste your time and money on Bright Sights. I tried that on my Taurus .357 and it made the sight visibility worse. It dries up way darker then it looks in the container and peels off way to easily. I agree with the fingernail polish, I've also heard model paint works well.

    Elsullo on an earlier post suggested white-out, the typing correction fluid. It worked well for me with its easy application and easy to clean off too. I found it super bright and easy to pick up with your minds eye.
