S&W Shield Specific Trijicon Night Sights
By James Nicholas
This was a press release that I got this morning from Trijicon, unfortunately it does not provide allot of information. What we can gather though is that this will be a new SKU for each version specific to the Shield. Instead of a one site fits all approach. I have some of the new sights coming but I was told to expect about 8 weeks for delivery. And if this is for writers samples, then it could be a couple more weeks after that before they hit your dealers shelves.
Trijicon Press release follows:
January 3, 2014
Trijicon ®, Inc. Introduces Bright & Tough™ and HD™ Night Sights for Popular Smith&Wesson® M&P Shield™ Handgun
Wixom, MI - New for 2014, Trijicon now offers both Bright and Tough™ and HD™ Night Sights for the immensely popular Smith & Wesson M&P Shield. The new offerings are available in multiple front/rear configurations for a variety of applications.
Trijicon Night Sights™ have served as the industry benchmark for more than two decades. Highly effective at close quarters, Trijicon Night Sights are standard issue with hundreds of municipal and county police and sheriff's departments, numerous state police departments and federal law enforcement agencies. In addition, they're the first choice of major handgun manufacturers, and are widely used in military applications and for personal defense.
Trijicon HD™ Night Sights
HD Night Sights are designed to excel under the most demanding conditions by placing primary emphasis on faster front sight acquisition. This new design incorporates enhanced front sight visibility with a de-emphasized rear sight.Upfront, a tritium lamp lies within an extra-large, brightly colored (yellow or orange)dot area that provides a distinctive sighting picture. In addition, special photo luminescent (glow-in-the-dark) powder in the paint aids in faster front sight acquisition during transitional lighting operations.
Trijicon Bright and Tough™ Night Sights
Trijicon self-luminous Night Sights increase night-fire shooting accuracy by as much as five times over conventional sights. Equally impressive, they do so with the same speed as instinctive shooting- and without the need for batteries.
