Forgive me - I don't have a P99 (yet) but this is a more general question and this is the most active forum. On my P5C the rear sight paint (white stripe) flaked off. Is there anything special I would need to touch it up other than automotive touchup paint?

I guess auto paint would work...

I occasionally do site work for family and friends using a water-based paint for pewter metal, then clear coat it.... shows up nice and doesn't wear off too easy.

Thanks

Auto touch up paint seems to have worked fine. Takes a steady hand. We'll see if it holds up to cleaning, if not I have plenty more.

I've not had to touch up sight paint on my P99 as yet. On other pistols I've tried model paint but it comes off with cleaners. I picked up some Sitebright sight paints at a gunshow (I've seen on line as well). Not really a paint, more of a rubberized kind of thing. Sets up over night and solvents don't seem to affect. Comes in a bunch of colors and you apply with a tooth pick. They also have glow in dark additives for the paints if you want. Buying the selection allow you to experiement with the colors to find the one that works for you.

Check out Bright Sights High Visibility sight paint and especially the directions for application at their brightsights.com web site. Application technique is critical according to another extensive article I read, which I have been unable to locate.
