AMERIGLO sights available online at Omaha Outdoors can provide a decisive low light advantage for a defensive handgun like a Glock or Smith and Wesson. Don't worry, though, if you carry a Beretta, Heckler and Koch, FN Herstal, Sig Sauer, or Springfield XD, Ameriglo has you covered, too. Not having night sights on a pistol could leave you fighting blind one day – Ameriglo wants to keep that from happening.
Classic Tritium night sight sets from Ameriglo use small amounts of tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, to provide you with a true "glow in the dark" aiming ability. Tritium is also used to increase the explosive yield of thermonuclear weapons, so you know it's definitely going to make your everyday carry pistol more effective. Some people prefer just a single tritium front sight and a plain rear sight for ease and speed of sight acquisition under stress, such as the Glock Hackathorn sights, while others like having three dot night sights for more exact alignment. Whichever way you go, Ameriglo makes a sight for you – including sets with an orange ring painted around the front tritium vial to enhance daytime sight acquisition. They even offer sight sets with a single dot front and a single dot rear. Want to put a silencer on your pistol and still see the sights and the target at the same time? Tall suppressor night sights (GL-329) are available. Operator sight sets feature three dot night sights with white paint only around the front night sight to allow for faster and more optimized front sight focus.
If radioactivity isn't your thing, how about harnessing the power of the sun? Your pistol could definitely benefit from fiber optic sights, especially if you plan on using it in brighter light or outdoors. Fiber optic sights would be a bad choice if nuclear winter blocks out the sun and everyone has to live in caves or subways to avoid fallout, but for every other apocalyptic scenario, they're awesome. And they're also awesome if we don't encounter an apocalypse and just need to see our sights right away. With varying widths and heights available, you could kill two birds with one stone by picking out a wider front sight for faster shooting up close or a narrower front sight for more precise aiming at distance. Convinced that your pistol sights were off from the factory? Pick out a higher (to move shots down on paper) or lower (to move shots up on paper) Ameriglo fiber optic front sight and make those troubles disappear!
