    In addition to the new handgun sights, XS showcased it’s newest set of open 45 degree offset rifle sights.  The Express Threat Intridiction or XTI series now features a Gen 2 option.  This is a taller version is a more offset version of the original XTI Gen 1.

    The taller design allows you to maintain a proper cheek weld on the rifle when transitioning to the 45-degree sight picture.  Both the new XTI 2 and DXT 2 sights are machined from steel and are backed by XS sights warranty.

    The DXT 2 sights are now available, with the XTI 2 sights coming soon.  Thank you to XS Sights for walking me through their new products.
