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
