R3D 2.0 rear is serrated to reduce glare and features tritium lamps to aid in sight alignment in any lighting condition. The 0.170” wide notch rear sight allows for more visibility on either side of the front sight post for faster sight alignment, especially in poor lighting conditions. Like the original R3D sights, the 2.0 family is designed with a ledge to aid in one-handed manipulations. The R3D 2.0 sights use brighter tritium lamps in the rear sight as compared to our original version to ensure that you can see the sights in poor lighting conditions. The black PVC ring surrounding the rear sight lamps helps create a more defined edge on the rear sight lamps to improve the sight picture and differentiate the front lamp from the rear sight lamps.

The 0.145” wide front sight is wider than many other options on the market and features an Ember Glow Dot surrounding the tritium lamp. The Glow Dot is available in either orange or green. The photo-luminescent Glow Dot will absorb ambient light and glow in low light while the tritium lamp is self-luminous and will glow in low light/no light situations for 12 years.

Black Nitride surface finish and revised dovetail dimensions round out the upgrades to the product line. The revised dovetail specifications offer a better installation experience with a sight pusher for the DIYer or the professional gunsmith.

The black nitride finish is highly resistant to corrosion and wear. The improved performance is ideal for a duty or everyday concealed handgun and will keep your sights looking good for years to come.

The R3D 2.0 is the ultimate choice for your EDC pistol, whether you’re a private citizen carrying concealed or a police officer patrolling the streets!

** R3D sights are CNC machined from solid steel bar stock by our in-house machine shop. **

XS R3D 2.0 sights are easily installable by sight pusher tools or using a hammer and punch.
