Trijicon announced they are now selling sights for the Walther PPX from the Bright & Tough and HD lines. Bright & Tough sights are the traditional three-dot with tritium inserts that many people are familiar with.
The HD night sights use tritium inserts, but with a bold photoluminescent outline on the front sight for increased visibility. The rear sight does not have any outline around the tritium vials, and is hooked to increase the ability to use them to operate the slide with only one hand.
The PPX is a polymer-framed pistol that was introduced at the 2012 NASGW show in Orlando, FL. I had a chance to review one earlier this year in .40 S&W. I found the gun to be reliable and accurate with moderate recoil. Trijicon HD night sights would be a great addition to the gun.
Trijicon® Inc. Expands Industry-Leading Bright & Tough™ and HD™ Night Sights Lines for the Walther PPX
Wixom, MI – Due to growing demand, Trijicon, Inc., global provider of innovative aiming solutions for the hunting, shooting, military and law enforcement markets, is now offering their proven Bright & Tough and HD Night Sights for the Walther PPX pistol. The new offering will be 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 Bright & 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.
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.
