TRUGLO’s TFX sights use the company’s tritium + fiber-optic xtreme technology, providing the end user with a 3-dot aiming system that’ll help you get the job done in daylight, low light and total darkness. According to the press release, this technology also boasts a sealed capsule design, press-fit retention rings and a “Fortress Finish,” meaning these tough sights are resistant to potentially damaging chemicals and solvents.
TFX PRO features the same technology, but with the addition of a U-notch rear sight for increased speed and accuracy, a bright orange FOCUS•LOCK ring on the front sight, and a forward-angled rear sight profile to assist in emergency one-hand slide operation.
