Saratoga, Wyoming–(Studentofthegun.com) – On Saturday, May 5th, 2018, Night Fision and Student of the Gun announced the release of the Accur8™ Tritium sights at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits held in Dallas, Texas.
The Accur8™ Tritium sights are a collaborative effort between Paul Markel of Student of the Gun and Night Fision. To begin with, these Tritium sights are precision machined from high-quality steel and are built in the USA with Swiss Tritium. Also, the sights are brighter than ever before. Lastly a brightly colored polymer surrounds the front sight, which enhances sight visibility in all light conditions.
Initially released for the GLOCK 17 sight cut, the Accur8™ Tritium sights offer Point of Aim/Point of Impact at 50 feet using 124 grain 9x19mm ammunition. In time, there will be sight offerings for other handgun models.
“A great deal of thought and testing went into the development of these sights,” said Paul Markel, veteran trainer and firearms instructor. “I am pleased to have the Student of the Gun name associated with Night Fision and these sights.”
“ We are very excited to be working with Paul on this exciting project,” said Jacob Herman, Director of Sales, Night Fision,” As Night Fision is the countries foremost expert in precision tritium we felt that we had to bring a sight like the Accur8™ to market.
Accur8™ sights are available for immediate purchase on the Night Fision website.
