Thanks to the collaborative efforts of Student of the Gun and Night Fision, the Accur8 Night Sights are here. We at Student of the Gun are excited to share with you the behind the scenes creative process that led to the Accur8 sights.
It all started with a simple question. “If you could make your own sight, what would it be?”
With 30+ years of experience, Professor Paul took his time cataloging the benefits and drawbacks of all of the sights he had used over the many years of training, teaching, and writing. With the help of Night Fision, Paul came up with a true point-of-aim, point-of-impact night sight.
After months of rigorously testing sight colors and sight heights, Paul found that the perfect sight height for the Accur8 sights is also just tall enough to peak over a suppressor. No more needing to change your sights if you want to shoot suppressed.
“You’re welcome,” says Paul.
Paul gives a behind the scenes in-depth explanation about our color vision, why they chose certain colors, why Night Fision Night Sights are the brightest on the market and the story of how Night Fision came to be.
“Student of the Gun is extremely honored for the opportunity to create a unique night sight with a leader in Tritium night sights and to share the behind the scenes journey with all of you,” adds Professor Paul.
