    As you can see in my Avatar I am the VERY proud owner of a Springfield Range Officer. I started shooting it and found that my old eyes couldn't do the black on black thing sooo, I put a Meprolight Big dot on the front. I am still having a problem with getting properly lined with the back being black...any suggestions for the Rear sight?? I really like having the original adjustable on it but I need something on it for the old eyes to pick it up right!! Here it what it loks like 0111132054.jpg

    It comes in the box like that. I am having a hard time getting a good sight picture with all of that black. I need some color around the u on the rear.

    I've actually seen people use Testor's white model paint...and even nail polish...

    to make a white outline around the notch...brings your eyes right to it !!

    S&W makes their rear combat sights like that straight from the factory...

    Seriously...on S&W boxes they list the combat setups contained within with

    two letter codes...TT TH RR WO = Target Trigger / Target Hammer / Red Ramp / White Outline

    The white outline does draw the eye to the notch,,,then to the red ramp,,,which covers the target.

    I use the fluorescent hobby paint, and outline the sight as SHOOTER13 has done. I have found that white and green colors work best for me.
