New Trijicon Sights for Walther PPX

Trijicon Walther PPX

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.

From Trijicon:

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.

    Odd news release because I was 95% sure the PPX took PPQ/P99/PPS sights and those trijicon products have bee out for quite some time.

    Enough time in fact, for me to get a set of a PPQ, have the front sight wobble like crazy, me send it to them at their Wixom MI facility, take THREE MONTHS for them to tell me “nope, nothing wrong you must have installed them wrong” (glock style front, it’s a single screw that wasn’t threaded deep enough), then attempt to send them back to me, I refused and didn’t hear anything from them for another month while by chance I found myself in Wixom Mi, pulled into the parking lot and called CS letting them know I was outside…

    One week later I received a brand new replacement set. No apology, no admittance that maybe they messed up and the sight was wrong, no issue that it took four months to replace. I won’t be be purchasing from Trijicon directly again if I can help it.

    Fwiw, the front on these are OK, well made when they are well made, but too wide for most people. The rear is TERRIBLE, very sharp for no reason, rear tritium is a distraction most of the time, helpful in staging sights in low light before your light comes up but useless once the light is on.

    A far better rear sight is the 10-8 with one of their fronts or a Dawson front. Cheaper too.
