XS Sights R3D 2.0 Tritium Night Sight Kits Now Available for 1911 Pistols

Just weeks after XS Sights announced that its new R3D 2.0 Tritium Night Sights were available for the Springfield Armory SA-35 pistol – after being introduced for the CZ P10 OR Pistol last month – the line of second-generation self-defense sights has been further expanded for the popular 1911 pistols from Colt, Kimber, and Springfield Armory.

The XS Sights R3D 2.0 Tritium Night Sight fits the Kimber 1911 like a glove.

These sights feature the same improved speed and accuracy in any light as the previous models, and the latest second-generation tritium self-defense sights promise to be brighter, stronger, and even easier to install than the original R3D versions. These offer a notch-and-post design with two rear tritium dots and a high-contrast green dual-illuminated Glow Dot front sight that is wider than most other sights on the market. The R3D 2.0 Tritium Night Sights’ Glow Dot’s self-luminous tritium vile glows in low or no light for 12 years. It is surrounded by XS’ proprietary photoluminescent dot material, which can absorb ambient light to glow in low light.

“There has been high demand for our new R3D 2.0 sights for 1911s, and we’re happy to now offer these kits for Colt, Kimber, and Springfield Armory models,” said Jeff King, marketing manager at XS Sights. “The overall design and high visibility of R3D 2.0 sights give 1911 owners an edge in high-stress, self-defense situations by helping them get on target faster and more accurately when every second counts.”

The R3D 2.0 Tritium Night Sights are available for Colt’s 1911 Government 5-inch w/ Fixed Rear; Kimber’s 1911 Custom 5-inch & Ultra Carry; and Springfield Armory’s 1911 Government 5-inch, TRP, & Operator models. As with all XS sights, these are backed by a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, while the  company also offers a 12-year warranty on all tritium products and a limited lifetime warranty on all other products

The R3D 2.0 Tritium Night Sights are now available for $148.99 (MSRP).
