Sight Selector Guide

Designed around front sight visibility in all lighting conditions and fast sight acquisition.

DXT2 Big Dot Sights

The DXT2 Big Dot Sights are the updated version of our classic DXT family of Express Sights.  Featuring a large, 0.188” diameter Big Dot in either Optic Orange (think NCAA baseball/softball foul poles) or Optic Yellow (similar to a bright yellow tennis ball), they are highly visible in any lighting condition.  The Big Dot front sight and shallow “V” express rear sight create a simple dot-the-I sight picture to provide the fastest sight acquisition possible.  Additionally, the wide-open sight picture offers enhanced down range visibility and works especially well for shooters with eyesight issues.  The DXT2 family is an excellent option for an every day carry pistol and excel in high-speed defensive shooting.  

 

DXT2 Big Dot sights are available in standard height and suppressor height options, with or without tritium.

3-Dot Tritium Notch & Post Sights

The R3D sights are the XS solution for customers who prefer a more conventional notch and post sighting system.  The 0.145” wide front sight is wider than many other options to allow for a slightly larger Ember glow dot surrounding the tritium lamp and can be had with either an orange or a green dot surrounding the tritium lamp.  The rear sight features a 0.170” wide notch to allow for slightly more visibility on either side of the front sight post to allow proper sight alignment, especially in poor lighting conditions.   The front sight features a tritium lamp that is wider and brighter than those on the rear sight to prevent any confusion or misalignment in low-light situations.  The conventional notch and post sight picture and familiar accuracy capability is right at home on an everyday carry pistol, whether you’re a private citizen carrying concealed or a police officer patrolling the streets.  

 

R3D sights are available in standard and suppressor height versions, with or without tritium.

F8 Sights (Figure 8)

The F8 sights are a happy medium between the DXT2 and R3D sights.  The bright orange dot in the 0.160” wide front sight post paired with a 0.190” notch rear sight allows for a traditional notch and post sight picture with enhanced sight alignment speed.  The F8 sights are tall enough to co-witness with some optics and suppressors, yet still low profile enough to work well as a standalone iron sight.  The wide notch, large front sight post and bright orange dot are second only to the DXT2 Big Dots for speed of acquisition while still offering a traditional notch and sight picture.  The F8 sights are right at home on an everyday carry defensive pistol or in the duty holster of a patrol or S.W.A.T. officer.

Front Sight Dual Illumination Powered by Tritium & Photoluminescent Dot

To increase the brightness of the front sight we surround the tritium with a bright colored photoluminescent glow dot. The high-contrast color aiding in sight acquisition in bright light, is easy for the eye to see, and the color options help color blindness issues. The photoluminescent properties absorb ambient light from the tritium and your surroundings to charge the dot, offering greater illumination in low light for front sight indexing.
