How do you remove the white outline from the rear sight?

    I tried putting acetone on it and scraping it with a pin and it wouldn't budge.

    That's why I like Colts. All you have to do is shoot it and the white dots fall out.
     
  2. not saying your right or wrong, just wondering why you want to?

    I do not like anything on the rear sight. It distracts me because my near-sighted vision makes it overpower the front sight.

    Or take it to a gunsmith and replace your sites with the ones you like.. Everybody is making a variety of different styles..

    I will try blacking it out.

    I can't replace it because it is a registered SBR to use with a RONI. The cocking handle attaches to the rear sight and some others will not work.

    The Glock plastic sights are actually white and black plastic, not paint. It has a white core, overmolded with black.

    Either use a Sharpie, or turn it around, or both.

    If it really bugs you, they're a snap to change with a sight pusher. Heck, if you're careful, and use a just right sized punch at the right angle, you can drift them out with a hammer, and turn them around without damaging them.

    If it really, really bugs you, there are tons of great aftermarket sights. I'm partial to Ameriglo. For $15, your rear sight problem is fixed. http://www.ameriglo.net/catalog/sights/pistol-sights/glock/black-sights/rear-sights

    Thanks, I didn't realize that. I usually knock them out so fast, I never look at it.

    See my post above as to why I can't change them.

    I'd say try a sharpie, if it can fix a pair of dress shoes it ought to be able to black out a rear sight.
