Introducing our R3D 2.0 Night Sights, specifically designed for the Desert Eagle Pistol. In high-stakes situations where your safety is at risk, having clear visibility can make all the difference. That's why we've engineered our R3D 2.0 Sights to offer incredible clarity and brightness, especially in low-light or no-light scenarios. Don't cut corners with an average sight; when you choose our R3D 2.0, you're going with the best quality available.

We've included advanced tritium lamps that are self-illuminating, ensuring that you can aim accurately whether it's day or night. Our sights also feature a unique Ember Glow Dot for additional visibility. You can choose this in either orange or green, and it's designed to absorb ambient light, glowing even brighter in low-light conditions. To top it off, we've used a durable BlackNitride finish that's built to resist wear and corrosion, making it ideal for heavy-duty use and humid environments.

With our R3D 2.0 Night Sights, you're not just getting a product—you're getting improved quickness and accuracy when it matters most. Level up your Desert Eagle from the traditional iron sights and stay one step ahead with this new sight.

R3D 2.0 Night Sights Introduction

See Your Sights in any Light!

The R3D 2.0 rear sight is designed with anti-glare serrations and upgraded, brighter tritium lamps to help you aim accurately no matter the lighting. The wider 0.170" rear notch boosts visibility around the front sight post, making it quicker to line up your sights even when the lighting isn't ideal. Just like the original R3D models, the 2.0 series comes with a built-in ledge for easier one-handed slide handling. The rear sight's black PVC ring sharpens the lamps' edges, enhancing your sight picture and helping you tell front from rear lamps more easily.

With a 0.145" width, the front sight is broader than many competitors and boasts an Ember Glow Dot that encircles the tritium lamp. Shooters can choose this Glow Dot in either orange or green. The Glow Dot captures surrounding light and illuminates in low-light situations, while the tritium stays lit on its own for up to 12 years in any lighting condition.

Enhancements to the R3D 2.0 also include EasyPress technology, including a lead-in edge and crush zone. These dovetail adjustments make installation smoother, whether you're a DIY enthusiast or a seasoned gunsmith.

Bottom line: if you're looking for the ultimate sight for your everyday carry, the R3D 2.0 will help you get shots on target in any lighting conditions.
