XS Sights is also pleased to introduce R3D Suppressor Height sights for Glock pistols, and they are also changing the name of their popular 3-Dot RAM Night Sights to R3D Night Sights due to a trademark issue with other products. The name change is effective immediately. 

“We always like to be smart with our resources and lengthy litigation wasn’t the way to go,” said Zack Kinsley, Marketing Manager for XS Sights. “To our support channel, please know it will not affect our forward momentum. We are excited to announce the new suppressor height line extensions for popular LE and aftermarket pistols, and we plan to continue with the R3D product line full speed ahead.”

The XS Sights radioactive material night sights have a traditional 3-dot tritium and notch and post sight picture. To increase contrast in bright light, the rear sight is blacked out against the front sight, which is available in bright orange or green. XS’s proprietary Ember Glow Dot technology allows the front sight to absorb energy from the ambient light and glow in low light. The front tritium lamp in the R3D sight also charges the Ember Glow Dot, making the front sight glow brighter than the rear, which helps to keep the focus on the front sight.

Other advantages of the R3D Night Sight include a brightly colored Ember Glow Dot in the front sight that is a much brighter color which differentiates the front dot from the two rear dots. The rear notch is also 15 percent wider than the front sight, allowing more visible light around the front sight. This makes it easier to see the front sight in changing light conditions and when shooting on the move, aiding in sight alignment, and increasing accuracy.

R3D Night Sights are CNC machined from bar stock steel and treated with a rust preventative coating which makes them an extremely durable and reliable addition to your firearm. The R3D sights fit standard holster options and are designed for simple installation by hand or with a sight pusher tool.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
