Enjoy a clear, sharp sight picture and visible aiming points, regardless of light conditions. MEPROLIGHT TRU-DOT® Tritium night sights are considered the brightest self-illuminated sight available today, appearing up to 20% brighter than other brands. And because the MEPROLIGHT front dot is purposely brighter than the rear dots, your focus is naturally drawn to the front sight and beyond—just where it belongs. With sights installed, low light conditions are no longer a limitation on your weapon. If you can see your target, you can set it squarely in your sights.
MEPROLIGHT shines. Their revolutionary, combat proven, tritium self-illuminated night sights enable you to hit stationary or moving targets under low-light conditions with dramatically increased hit probability. Test results by marksmen and journeymen level shooters using tritium self-illuminated MEPROLIGHT sights have shown an increase of over 85% in hit efficiency, compared to conventional sights. And because TRU-DOT tritium sights add no weight to the weapon system, they require no adjustment by the shooter—except perhaps, to a higher level of success.
Tritium Light Sources:
- Add no weight
- Occupy no additional space
