    Midway USA has a video showing details on how to DIY. Give them a yell via email and see what you have to do to look at it. I watched the owner via utube a few months ago and it "looks" fairly easy (just have to take a file to your prized handgun).

    thanks but I don't want to machine the existing sight but to buy another one. I want to be sure to come back my favorite colt in the original way.

    If all you want is to test whether a colored sight might help, simply paint the sight with model airplane paint.
    It's reasonably durable, and comes off easily with lacquer thinner.

    A bright paint is Testor's Fluorescent Red. Another that works better for some people is a bright Lime Green
    Paint the sight with a base coat of Gloss White to give the Red a reflecting base. This makes the Red "glow" brighter.

    Allow the White to dry over night before applying the Red, and STIR the paints thoroughly.

    If you like the color, you can just stick with the paint. It's durable and easy to refresh, and doesn't alter the original sights.

    thanks for the paint advice. I already applied this method but the result with fluroescent nail polish is not very good particularly in low light conditions.

    that why I'm looking for red ramp with red optic fiber.

    i use it on a CZ shadow and it's very nice.

    I have to test again red and orange flurorescent nail polish over a white paint.

    you're right very easy to remove and to come back to the original sight

    nevertheless, I would like to found a red fiber optics sight

    Smile Python front sight w/red insert

    Heliopilote, these are very hard to find. I finally did find one from a PA dealer not on the forum. I'll ask and post if he has another. Don't think so. It was $45 shipped.

    There was a thread in the coltsmithing about this started by Skippy??; Cap 1954 said he had them, but never responded to my PM or email regarding. I think the lastest thread date was 12-10-10 or there about.
    Good luck,
    Will
