Any advice on taking readings off the T&E mech? We use the C2 sight which is pretty easy to use, especially at night my so far brief experience (2 week HMG gunner course) with the T&E mech makes it seem like a big pain in the ass. A few of us have talked about maybe applying chalk or something else to the numbers on the mechanism and the traversing bar to make it easier to read at night.
Maybe luminescent sight paint?
I put this (https://www.truglo.com/accesso...brite-paint-kits.asp) on the sights of one of my pistols and was thoroughly underwhelmed with it, but I pulled it out of a toolbox that had been sitting in the shop for a few years. Fresh stuff might work better, or someone may know of a better product. I’d try thorough degreasing and then lining the marks on the traverse bar and T&E with this.
