XS Sights, known for a variety of fantastic sighting systems across the industry, has announced the release of their latest addition to the XS(R) series of sights, the XS(R) 1911 Novak Suppressor Height Express Sights. As the name implies, the sights are oriented towards the modern 1911.
Specifically, the sights are meant for 1911 slides with the following cuts:
- Front sight: 0.330″ x 65° x 0.075″dp
- Rear sight: 0.495″ x 65°
In short, they are the same XS Sights that one either loves or hates (as I have never encountered someone ambivalent to them) in a slightly higher configuration to clear the typical can. These same sights are available across a wide swath of platforms including the latest Glock 42/43 and M&P 22, though not in the suppressor height.
The series includes both the standard and Big Dot(R) systems with tritium being standard across the line. There are four SKU’s being released in suppressor-height varieties, two featuring tritium-front only with the white stripe rear and the other two SKU’s including tritium in both the front and rear sights. Within each pairing, there is a Standard Dot(R) and Big Dot(R) version. The white-stripe only versions retail at $105 and the paired tritium versions are increased only $30 to $135.
The sights are shipping now. They can be ordered through any XS Sight Systems dealer or directly with XS.
