No-Snag, Low-Profile With Tritium Dots For Enhanced Visibility In Low Light
The ultimate marriage of quality and function, Trijicon® self-illuminating tritium inserts provide a fast, easy-to-acquire sight picture in all light conditions. Wedge shaped body has fully rounded edges and sets low in the slide for minimum profile and a smooth, snag-free draw for concealed carry and competition guns. Fine line serrations on rear of blades eliminate glare for the best possible sight picture. Dovetails are cut .002"-.003" oversized to fit existing sight cuts; gunsmith fitting may be required. Straight Eight - One tritium dot on the front sight and one on the rear align vertically for exceptionally fast acquisition. Ultra Low Mount provides an even more compact profile; fits pistols with Novak-type .500" x 65° dovetail in slide. "T" suffix on model number indicates rear sight is .050" taller to provide correct sight picture on smaller short-slide pistols. Ultra Low Mount Ledge - Front edge of the rear sight blade has been cut square to provide adequate purchase for one-handed racking of the slide. Available in standard and T models, with one centered Trijicon insert for “Straight Eight” sight picture or with two side-by-side inserts for a more traditional, three-dot horizontal sight picture.
