SIGHT SYSTEM - SMITH & WESSON
OPTICS + IRON SIGHTS
OPTICS READY STEALTH
Our Standard Height Sights are made to upgrade directly from your handgun manufacturer’s sights to a high quality, engineered night sight. Like all our night sights, they carry our patented domed lenses that collimate the emitted light from our substantial tritium vials. Those vials are housed in ballistic polymer that is impregnated with fluorescent or phosphorescent pigment for a multi-tasking, bright daytime ring. Standard height sights are offered in a variety of combinations, and are meant as the singular sighting system on the handgun.
The Accur8 sight system was designed, in partnership with Night Fision, by Paul Markel. His brand, Student of the Gun, has been a resource for many a shooter interested in defensive handgun tactics and principles. A higher sight blade than what is installed in the factory, the Accur8 sight is designed to be Point of Aim/Point of Impact at roughly 15 yards or 50 feet. As well as a specifically designed blade height, the sight elements are a simple dot over dot sight alignment system. The rear sight Tritium is 50% dimmer to both encourage front sight focus, and avoid confusion under stress.
Our tallest sights, Suppressor Height sights are designed to be paired with suppressors. They feature a variety of front sight colors to be paired with rear sights that offer black or white rings. All carrying our Perfect Dot™, Suppressor Height sights are often seen paired with Optics on pistols because the blade height sits above the battery packs of almost all slide mounted pistol optics. They offer an absolute co-witness (meaning the dot will be in-line with the sight element) or sit immediately below where the dot of the optic often ends up in the window.
Your primary sighting system is an optic, why let your back up irons steal precious optic window space from you? The ideal sights to pair with your optic, the Optics Ready Stealth series offers a lower 1/3 co-witness with most optics. Designed to work with optics, and not a repurposed Suppressor Height sight, our Optics Ready Stealth carry fine serrations designed to limit glare, rear sights that are available with black rings or as blanks and narrow serrated front blades. As with all our night sights, our Optics Ready Stealth carry our Perfect Dot™ sight element—a patented domed lens that collimates the light emitted by the Tritium housed in a ballistic polymer vial.
