    There is commercial sight paint out there. I tried it and did not have good results. Now I just go to the local hobby shop, and get model paint. Any color I want. I have to re-apply once in a while, but there is PLENTY of paint to re-do them, in one of those little jars.

    Try white appliance touch-up paint (like you would use to repair chips on the finish of your refrigerator). It is a very shiny, very WHITE paint.

    Most hardware stores sell it and it comes in small bottles.

    I use finger nail poish. Have also used it for touch up on my truck. But outdoor sign paint is the best I've used for staying power on my firearms......Mutt
