TRUGLO®’s BRITE-SITE™ TFO® Lineup for Handguns
Handgun owners with model 1911 firearms, specific Ruger® models or the Glock® 41 or 42 can enjoy the world’s most technologically advanced fiber-optic sights containing TRUGLO®’s patented TFO® Tritium/Fiber-Optic technology now that TRUGLO® has extended its BRITE-SITE™ TFO® line of handgun sights.
The new 1911 Brite-Site™ TFO® handgun sight models include Novak® Lo-Mount cut sights for the 5-inch Government in .45ACP, 9mm/.40 S&W, as well as the 3-inch Officers and 4.25-inch Commander models in .45ACP, 9mm/.40 S&W. Ruger® models are designed to fit the Ruger® SR9, SR40 and SR45 (includes compact models), as well as the Ruger® LC9 and LC380. The Glock® 41 and 42 TFO® Brite-Site™ sights join an earlier release for the Glock® 22.
TRUGLO® BRITE-SITE™ TFO® handgun sights are the most revolutionary innovation since TRUGLO® introduced fiber-optics to the shooting sports industry more than twenty years ago. TFO® refers to a patented combination of tritium and fiber-optic technologies. The tritium maintains the brightness level of the sight in low or no-light conditions. That means you can see your sight even in complete darkness with perfect transition through all lighting conditions. Tritium does not need batteries and does not need to be charged with light: It simply glows!
Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen that occurs naturally in trace amounts. TRUGLO® utilizes only the highest quality tritium available in the world for their handgun sights. Mb-microtec, located in Bern, Switzerland has been in existence since 1918 and is world renowned for its manufacturing capabilities regarding tritium technology. http://www.mbmicrotec.com
Using TRUGLO®’s patented TFO® technology, these handgun sights will deliver an enhanced sight picture 24/7. The TFO® technology achieves rapid target acquisition by using existing ambient light to illuminate the sight picture during bright lighting conditions and then utilizing the tritium component to illuminate the fiber-optic during low or no-light conditions. Simply put, the end user can rely on TRUGLO®’s TFO® Brite-Site™ for an uninterrupted, consistent sight picture without the need for batteries.
The low-profile sight housings are constructed from CNC-machined steel. The design protects the fiber-optic while concealing its view from the target. The TFO® sights are designed to fit in standard holsters and are snag-resistant and dependable.
