Big Dot and Standard Dot Night Sights are defensive tritium sights designed to enhance your defense gun. The sights use a proprietary photoluminescent Glow Dot that absorbs ambient light and glows in low light. The convex dot's additional surface area increases light absorption, intensifying the charge of the Glow Dot. Designed to be large and highly visible, these sights help solve many issues, from aging eyes to deteriorating vision. We've found that the orange front tends to be most visible in daylight settings and that yellow glows brighter in low light, while green is an excellent option for low light and has a very bright glow intensity. XS Tritium Night sights are big, bright, and easy to see day or night!
The sights are CNC machined from solid steel bar stock by our in-house machine shop. We design, machine, and insert our tritium to produce the highest quality possible and provide American Made products.
We are a small, second-generation family-owned business based in Fort Worth, TX, and our customers are family. We live, eat, and breathe guns. We offer easy DIY install instructions and a 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee. If you have color vision issues and can't see the front dot, call us, and we will get another color shipped out - over 5% of the population has color blindness to a degree!

I waited a while before I decided to purchase and install this sight. Very simple install with JB Weld and a zip tie. The results are I'm very impressed and sorry I waited so long to "pull the trigger" on this addition.
Bead and pedestal sight for Remington 870 Tactical
This sight is great! Installation was easy and simple with the combination of JB weld. I only put American stuff on my firearms (especially for self defense) and I'm happy XS makes a good, tough and durable sight. Thanks! I'll be back when I make another gun purchase.
870 Pedestal Big Dot Tritium Sight
As usual, XS has knocked it out of the park! As a retired Sheriff with 34 years experience both in Alaska and Missouri I now use the 12 gauge as a defensive tool. Having had a defensive use of of a 12 gauge against a charging bear at night in Alaska, I am deeply appreciative of these sheafs. Oh, the bear died inches from my toes. Thank you XS Sights!

870 pedestal orange
sight def makes it easier/faster to pick up. Used JBWeld gray and taped it overnight. Made another batch to fill in tiny holes I seen and used Qtip to wipe excess away. Looks like it was from factory. I did have to file a bit of bead and bottom of sight a bit. GREAT ADDITION
Remington 870 big dot
I purchased a tactical 870 after carrying a gift certificate for several months, from Bud’s guns in Tennessee. I installed Magpul hardware and finished with the install of the pedestal sight from XS. A quick alcohol wipe followed by JBweld epoxy cemented the sight extremely well. After the application of epoxy, I clamped the sight overnight. I am extremely happy with the install as well as the new sight picture. This sight is a quality addition to the build.
