    SKS - coloured front sight post - who ships to NZ ?

    Anyone here managed to get a set of those coloured front posts shipped to NZ? Anywhere I seem to buy from overseas won't ship to nz....... just annoying.....

    Not the same as what you are after but I bought a Marble rear sight off Brownell mid last year - Williams and Marble seems one of the few things of this type that they don't get in a tiz about.

    Or clean the front sight post with some of your Mrs' nail polish remover and paint either the whole post, or just the top tip with this:

    Nail Polish Glow in the Dark x6 | Trade Me

    Does need to be reapplied though.

    Thanks guys - this one is going to be a winner - no need to over engineer it!

    This stuff is pretty cool too. Comes in a few colours and it's pretty tough

    Just for completeness - and anyone searching threads in the future.
    I've going with putting a small bright coloured piece of heat shrink over the post and then a drop of that nail polish on the tip when it arrives.
