Trijicon’s New HD Night Sights are designed to excel under the most demanding conditions by placing primary emphasis on faster front sight acquisition. This new design incorporates enhanced front sight visibility with a de-emphasized rear sight. Upfront, a tritium lamp lies within an extra-large, brightly colored (yellow or orange) dot area that provides a distinctive sighting picture. In addition, special photo luminescent (glow-in-the-dark) powder in the paint aids in faster front sight acquisition during transitional lighting operations.
The rear sight contains custom black-outlined tritium lamps surrounding a wider “U”-shaped notch and features a redesigned sight face that’s back-angled with serrations to reduce glare. As an added feature, the rear sight incorporates a “hooked” design that assists with one-handed emergency pistol slide manipulation.
Proprietary testing has shown that most users are appreciably faster at achieving center mass hits on a target with the HD Night Sights than with standard pistol sights. Data shows this regardless of the user’s current proficiency level in pistol shooting, and is due to the ability to obtain a faster focus on the front sight of the HD Night Sights.
Trijicon self-luminous Night Sights increase night-fire shooting accuracy by as much as five times over conventional sights. Equally impressive, they do so with the same speed as instinctive shooting- and without the need for batteries.
