We at XS believe in front sight focus. The front sight must stand out in all lighting conditions, from bright light to low light. The rear sight should be simplistic, drive focus to the front, without slowing down sight acquisition, and have crisp corner edges for accurate 4-corner alignment.
Tritium night sights need to be visible day and night. R3D front sights are available in an orange or green Ember Glow Dot, offering a high-contrast sight picture in bright light settings. The 0.170" wide rear notch allows space around the 0.145" wide front blade. This gap makes front sight indexing much faster, while still allowing for accurate sight alignment. The blacked-out rear keeps the shooter's focus on the front sight and the threat downrange.
All XS night sights are CNC machined from steel bar stock in the great state of Texas. The steel construction ensures the sights are protected from drops, racking off barricades, and will hold up for years. The steel surface is blued to resist rusting with a regular cleaning and oil schedule. R3D sights are chemically resistant to acetone-based cleaning solutions and ultrasonic cleaners. The convex dot is gun powder residue resistant and can be easily wiped off with a cleaning cloth.
