TRUGLO® Introduces New BRITE•SITE™ TFO® Handgun Sights for Ruger® and 1911 Model Firearms

As manufacturer of the world’s most advanced line of fiber-optic sights and accessories for the shooting sports industry, we’re excited to announce our newest additions to the BRITE•SITE™ TFO® (Tritium/Fiber-Optic) family of handgun sights. The new BRITE•SITE™ TFO® Ruger® models are designed to fit the Ruger® SR9®/ SR40®/ SR45™ (includes compact models), as well as the Ruger® LC9®/ LC380®. The new 1911 BRITE•SITE™ TFO® handgun sight models include Novak® LoMount cut sights for the 5” Government in .45ACP, 9mm/.40 S&W, as well as the 3” Officers and 4.25” Commander models in .45ACP, 9mm/.40 S&W. These new sights offer revolutionary innovation with TRUGLO’s patented combination of TFO® (Tritium and Fiber-Optic) technology delivering an enhanced, consistent sight picture 24/7 – TRUGLO is the only manufacturer in the industry to possess this patented technology!truglo tfo

Rapid target acquisition is achieved with TFO® technology by utilizing existing ambient light to illuminate the sight picture during bright lighting conditions and then utilizing the tritium component to illuminate the fiber-optic during low light or no light conditions, with excellent transition. The patented TFO® technology offers an uninterrupted, consistent sight picture for the shooter when other sight systems fall short. Tritium technology has been around for 70 years, and we only source from Swiss firm mb-microtec, the finest in the world.

The low-profile sight housings are constructed from CNC-machined steel. The technical design protects the fiber while concealing its view from the target. The TFO® sights fit in standard holsters and are designed to be snag-resistant and dependable.

Each BRITE•SITE TFO® Handgun Sight set is available in a green front sight / green rear sight combination or a green front sight / yellow rear sight combination.
