1911

1911

On March 29, 1911, the greatest fighting pistol ever to be issued was officially adopted by the United States military. The M1911 or Government model has fought in every single conflict that our men have participated in for over 100 years. Currently the U.S Marine Corps issues an updated model 1911 called a M45A1. The pistol has been knocked off or built under license in countries ranging from Philippines to Norway. The Philippines still makes them the same way Colt engineers showed them how to in the 1920’s.

Fifteen or so years ago I acquired a stainless Springfield G.I. grade 1911 made by Imbel in Brazil. This gun now has 25000 rounds or so through it and various configurations. I have owned over 100 other 1911 pistols but this one will always stay with me. I run the old piece in an OWB leather Galco rig. I expect I will carry this gun on and off until the day I depart this earth.

Since I love these pistols so much, I have been wanting to get a 1911 project going at Night Fision. Two things happened that helped make this a reality. Night Fision has recently begun shipping Perfect Dot sights using Novak bodies. If you carry a quality 1911, more than likely the cut on your slide was developed by Wayne Novak. These sites are built like a tank and Novak makes them the best. 1911 shooters can now purchase Novak cut sights and reap the benefits of our advanced tritium insertion technology. I can now get Perfect Dot sights on my 1911 and my Browning Hi Power.

The Colt 1911 has been around now longer than anyone has been alive. With a million or so sold every year this pistol isn’t going anywhere. If you have a 1911, do yourself a favor and put a set of Night Fision Novak Perfect Dot sights on it.

Night Fision to Offer Night Sights for 1911 Firearms

Dearborn, Mich. (January 15, 2019) – Night Fision, a leader in advanced tritium insertion solutions, has expanded their product line to include night sights compatible with 1911 firearms.

“One of the most popular handguns available is the 1911,” said Jacob Herman, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Night Fision has received an overwhelming response from our customers requesting 1911 sights, and we are pleased to announce that we will now offer night sights that will be compatible with the majority of these pistols.”

Night Fision’s newest sights fit the Novak® .495” x 65° dovetail cut, used by many of today’s top manufacturers of 1911 handguns.

Like all of Night Fision’s sights, these will feature the Perfect Dot® – a highly visible colored ring around the tritium vial that will not fade, chip, crack or peel under even the most adverse conditions, unlike many competitors’ hand-painted rings. Additionally, Night Fision sights utilize a higher concentration of tritium gas compared to leading competitors, ensuring Night Fision sights glow in the dark longer and brighter than others.

“When we started developing our next generation of Novak Sights, we looked for tritium insert innovation and chose Night Fision,” said Charley Pulit of Novak Designs Inc. “The Perfect Dot® is a better hard-use insert that resists damage, stains, fading, and discoloration. The Perfect Dot® almost equals fiber optic daytime brightness but has better acuity without the frailty or degradation that is known with fiber optic rods.”

Night Fision’s 1911 sights will be available for purchase beginning in March 2019. Consumers can choose a yellow, orange, white, blue or red front ring color. To purchase Night Fision products, please visit www.nightfision.com.

Where Did Night Fision’s Name Come From?

Night Vision – Quite simply, is the ability to see in low-light conditions.

In nuclear chemistry and physics, nuclear fission is either a nuclear reaction or a radioactive decay process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts.

Tritium is an uncommon product of the nuclear fission of plutonium-235, uranium-235, and uranium-233.

Night Vision + Nuclear Fission = Night Fision


Night Fision brings over 25 years of manufacturing experience with Tritium to the firearms industry.

Night Fision sights pack 30% more Tritium into every sight so you are prepared for any lighting scenario.

The Accur8™ sights were developed in a partnership with Paul Markel of Student of the Gun. “The Student of the Gun Accur8™ sights were designed to provide absolute accuracy, day or night,” said Markel.

“I couldn’t be more excited about expanding our popular Accur8™ line of sights,” said Jacob Herman, Director of Sales and Marketing. “These sights are the result of hours of development and testing, culminating in the creation of a design practical for shooters of all levels.”
