In a self-defense situation, the front sight is king. And it is even better if the front sight can be seen in the dark. This is why shooters should consider the XS Sights DXT2 Big Dot Night Sights.
Available in two colors — Optic Yellow and Optic Orange — the DXT2 Big Dot sights drive focus to the front sight, and the target. XS Sights used a patent-pending colored glow dot that absorbs light. Therefor, the sight glows before it is dark enough to see the tritium center. Additionally, the V-notch rear sight features a vertical white stripe with a tritium vial at the center. This creates an “i” sight picture for fast and accurate target acquisition in high-stress situations.
“Our DXT2 Big Dot Night Sights are the most visible night sights on the market today for defensive shooting,” said Zack Kinsley, Marketing manager for XS Sights. “The industry-leading large diameter front sight increases the amount of light that is absorbed and reflected to the eye. The yellow and orange color options we offer address different needs, since color perception can vary greatly between people.”
According to XS Sights, Optic Yellow is the most visible color in low light, as it doesn’t wash out on light backgrounds. However, Optic Orange is best for bright light settings, offering a high-glow intensity that maintains visibility in decreasing light levels. The company also claims that Gen 2 Big Dots are four times as bright in low light as the Gen 1 Big Dots, thanks to the XS Sights patent-pending glow dot. The increased brightness is due to pairing the convex dot with photoluminescent properties.
XS Sights backs the DXT2 Big Dot Night Sights with a 10-year, no questions asked warranty. They should be available for select pistol models in December.
