  These are the colors that seem to be the most useful to help the Shooter acquire a better 'Downrange' or Target Image in the sight picture.  We all have the Yellow or Smoke or Vermillion etc.  for those days when the light is just  ----------------- you fill in the blank.  Well there is a new Technique,  and you guessed it, I got it.  You know how the 'Downrange' images look Really Good when you first put on those 'special' glasses ?  Well, if you have that 'Special' effect  then, you'll understand how  the color in the Sight Lens will work. Every time you look through the Sight, will be just like when you first put on those glasses.  The eye will not 'Acclamate'  [self-adjust]  to the change in color during the 8 to 12 seconds it takes to Fire the shot.  DISCLAIMER:  You should ALWAYS Wear Protective Glasses when on the firing line DONE.
The Yellow Lens will usually help on those Foggy Mornings at Perry, a few Shooters have used my Rose Lens to see an Improved Target / Number Board Image on those Foggy / Hazy days too.  The Blue / Green / and Rose will help on those days when the 'Shimmer' of the Mirage makes the Target appear to be Dancing or Distorting the image of the edge of the black.  Amber is my favorite for a Range here in Phoenix.  When the sun is low in the sky, it seems to make the 'Haze'  blend in with the tan of the impact area and the beige of the Target paper.  The Amber gives a 'Depth' to the sight picture also, makes a forest look like a bunch of individual trees, not just a 'clump' of color in the background.  The Orange Blue-Blocker  can only be experienced.  Some days it makes the Target 'Standout' and other days I get too much 'Glare' on the Target to use it.  Which brings us to another point.  If you're going to have a color lens on your Rifle, I strongly recommend that you also have a 'Clear' lens available because colors are NOT the answer for ALL DAYS.   AND, if your whole shooting program depends on your vision device,  by all means, have a "Back-Up"  Plan.  One fellow went to Puerto Rico for a Match, and another shooter offered to 'Smoke' the Sights, see where this is going, He 'Smoked' an M1A Rear Sight and melted the Lens that was inside the Hood.  You have 'Backup' everything else, carry a Backup Lens too.
These descriptions of what the different colors do to the sight picture,  are NOT cast in stone and there will be variable effects on your eyes, on your range, on any given day.

NOTE: TO PREVENT THE INVENTORY FROM GETTING OUT-OF-HAND, BJONES SIGHTS WILL NO LONGER EXCHANGE COLOR LENSES
