XS RAM (RadioActive Material) Night Sights
See Your Sights Day and Night!
XS RAM Night Sights feature a traditional 3-dot tritium, notch and post sight picture. The blacked-out rear increases contrast against the front sight. The front sight is available in orange or green and is equipped with our Ember® Glow Dot Technology. Ember absorbs ambient light and glows in low light. The front tritium lamp charges the Ember dot making the front sight glow brighter than the rear at all times, keeping focus downrange. RAM sights are the brightest notch and post option for fast and accurate shooting in bright and low light.
Front Sight Focus
We at XS believe in front sight focus. The front sight must stand out in all lighting conditions, from bright light to low light. The rear sight should be simplistic, drive focus to the front, without slowing down sight acquisition, and have crisp corner edges for accurate 4-corner alignment.
Tritium night sights need to be visible day and night. RAM front sights are available in an orange or green Ember Glow Dot, offering a high-contrast sight picture in bright light settings. The 0.170" wide rear notch allows space around the 0.145" wide front blade. This gap makes front sight indexing much faster, while still allowing for accurate sight alignment. The blacked-out rear keeps the shooter's focus on the front sight and the threat downrange.
Standard 3-Dot tritium rear sights tend to glow brighter than most fronts because the combined glow intensity of the two rear tritium lamps are closer to the eye and together have a higher glowing surface area than the front. RAM front sights use a tritium lamp that is twice as bright and 30% larger than an individual lamp from the 2-dot rear. The light produced from the front sight's tritium lamp charges the Ember Glow Dot ensuring the front sight is always brighter than the 2-Dot tritium rear. Once exposed to any other environmental ambient light, the Ember dot glows very brightly, differentiating it from the rear dots.
Ember Glow Dot helps cover mid-light levels where a standard tritium sight glow would not yet be visible. In extremely low light levels, it provides a more prominent glowing front sight.
