Trijicon Sights for HK VP9

Trijicon HK vp9 sights

Trijicon is now selling sights for the HK VP9 from the company’s Bright & Tough and HD lines. This is similar to the announcement made by the company recently about new sights for the Walther PPX.

The Bright & Tough line is the standard Trijicon sights seen on many handguns for years. The HD line is a more recent addition to the company’s catalog. These sights feature a bright photoluminescent front sight with a tritium insert, rather than the simple white outline around the tritium vial.

Trijicon® Inc. Introduces Bright & Tough™ and HD™ Night Sights for the H&K VP9 Pistol

Wixom, MI –Trijicon, Inc., global provider of innovative aiming solutions for the hunting, shooting, military and law enforcement markets, will now offer their Bright & Tough and HD Night Sights for the Heckler & Koch VP9 pistol. This new offering is 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 & 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.

    It took two years to get Walther PPQ sights from Trijicon… This is just one reason I’m unfortunately looking to move from that platform.

    If HK dumped the paddle mag release (yea, I know, some people love it, but let’s be honest, it’s niche and will never be “standard”) I would have already switched to it already. Was so glad PPQ M2 had a button mag release but that platform just has a couple of things that bother me. Most all is lack of aftermarket support, something the P30/VP9 do not suffer from.

    Now I’m kicking around M&P, Glock, and SIG P320. Will likely wait to see what happens with handgun trials.

    • I’m partial to the M&P (HAVE 2), like the Glock it has a huge aftermarket and is cheap/plentiful. I started with the HK, then to Glock and finally ended up running the Smith. Better ergonomics and needs less out of the box especially if you get an Apex trigger from the start!

    This was just about the only thing holding me back from getting a VP9.
