TruGlo Releases TFX and TFX Pro Sights for Ruger American Pistol

posted on December 8, 2016

TruGlo expanded its line of TFX and TFX Pro handgun sights with new versions designed specifically for all models of the Ruger American Pistol.

TFX, which stands for Tritium+Fiber-Optic Extreme, are three-dot handgun sights that glow in the dark and can be used in both bright sunlight and complete darkness. The technology uses sealed capsules set in place using press-fit retention rings along with a trademarked Fortress Finish to produce a durable set of sights that are resistant to chemical solvents.

The company's TFX Pro line adds a U-notch rear sight for additional speed and accuracy and an orange Focus Lock ring on the front sight, along with an angled rear sight that aids in one-handed slide operation.

The suggested retail price on TruGlo's TFX sights is $172, while the upgraded TFX Pro sights retail at a suggested price of $186.

Except for some ammo, the box contained everything you need to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus In 30 Super Carry

Before we dive headfirst into the morass that is the 30 Super Carry debate, let’s start with something (slightly) less controversial: Smith & Wesson’s Shield Plus is a supremely good pistol. Building on the success of the standard Shield and updated M2.0 versions, the Shield Plus kept critical dimensions similar to allow most gear designed for the Shield to work for the Shield Plus.
