A complete re-design of the well-loved, made-in-Texas R3D sight configuration has resulted in version 2.0 with a brighter, stronger and easier-to-install product from XS Sights.

Comprised of a nitride-finished, square-notch rear and post front, the two pistol sights combine to help improve speed and accuracy in any lighting condition, thanks to its proprietary photoluminescent material.

The dual-illuminated, large front dot—available in green or orange—features high-contrast tritium, in conjunction with PVC rings, that create an easy-to-see, 0.145"-wide Glow Dot. Two rear tritium dots oppose the serrated, square-notch rear to help orient the Glow Dot front for quick acquisition.

A tactical cocking ledge is also included on the leading edge of the rear unit. Available to fit Canik, FN, Glock, SIG Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, Taurus, Tisas and Walther pistols.

MSRP is $132 (standard height); $143 (suppressor height). For more information, visit
