XS Sights Big Dot Night Sights for S&W, HK

XS Sights have just announced that they’re now offering their Big Dot Night Sights system for the Smith & Wesson M&P 9 Shield EZ and for Heckler & Koch’s P7 pistol lineup. XS Sights’ Big Dot pistol iron sights have been around for some time now and incorporate a large, highly visible dot front sight that encircles a tritium insert, backed up by a shallow V-notch rear sight with a single tritium insert at the bottom of the notch. The brightly colored ring on the front sight is also engineered to glow in the dark for in-between light and dark settings.

HK P7 Big Dot night sights

You can read XS Sights’ press release below:

XS® Sights is pleased to now offer its popular DXT2® Big Dot® Night Sights for the Smith & Wesson® M&P®9 Shield™ EZ® and the HK® P7 M8, P7 M13 and P7 PSP pistols.

Known for exceptional front sight visibility in all lighting conditions, these second-generation Big Dot Night Sights are available in Optic Yellow® and Optic Orange®. The DXT2 Big Dot sights drive focus to the front sight and downrange threat using a large, high-contrast front and a V-notch rear sight for an unobstructed view of the front sight.

The Big Dot fronts use a patent-pending colored Ember glow dot that absorbs light, causing the sight to glow before it’s dark enough to see the tritium center. The glow dot also stores energy enabling it to glow brightly for many hours. The V-notch rear sight features a vertical white stripe with a tritium vial at the center, creating a dot-the-“i” sight picture for fast and accurate target acquisition in high-stress situations.

Optic Yellow is the most visible color in low light. Optic Orange is the best for bright light settings such as shooting outside in daylight and offers a high-glow intensity that maintains visibility in decreasing light levels.

Retail Price: $132.00

All XS Sights are backed by a 10-year, No Questions Asked Warranty and XS’s 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee.

    I would feel embarrassed to put these on my P7

    Has anyone used these and transitioned to them completely? Or has anyone used them and hated them?

    I really wanted to like XS sights. I put them on my CZ P-01 and I couldn't hit the side of a barn at 7 yards. In practice, they were horrible. Switched them out for the usual tritium 3-dot sights and everything went back to normal. Couldn't justify keeping sights that forced me to adjust my mechanics that much.
