Trijicon introduced a new line of HD night sights at the 2011 SHOT Show in January. I recently had the opportunity to install a set of these (SG101O – MSRP $149) on my Sig Sauer P239 (.40 S&W) and have to say that I’m very pleased with them. The front sight visibility is greatly improved over standard sights. These sights are available with a Yellow or Orange ring front sight (my version has orange, the rear sight is black to de-emphasize it in the sight picture). Initially, these are only available for a handful of gun models from Sig Sauer, Glock, S&W and Springfield Armory, I would anticipate this to be expanded in the future. Current ship times from Trijicon direct are around 4 weeks. Scroll down to see pictures of these new sights installed on my Sig P239.

Trijicon®, Inc. Introduces HD Night SightsTM- A New Advancement To The World’s Most Popular Handgun Sights
Wixom, MI – Trijicon Night SightsTM have served as the industry benchmark for more than two decades. Highly effective at close quarters, Trijicon Night Sights are standard issue with hundreds of municipal and county police and sheriff’s departments, numerous state police departments and federal law enforcement agencies. In addition, they’re the first choice of major handgun manufacturers, and are widely used in military applications and for home defense. New for 2011, Trijicon sets the bar even higher with the introduction of its new line of HD Night SightsTM
Trijicon’s New HD Night Sights are designed to excel under the most demanding conditions by placing primary emphasis on faster front sight acquisition. This new design incorporates enhanced front sight visibility with a de-emphasized rear sight. Upfront, a tritium lamp lies within an extra-large, brightly colored (yellow or orange) dot area that provides a distinctive sighting picture. In addition, special photo luminescent (glow-in-the-dark) powder in the paint aids in faster front sight acquisition during transitional lighting operations.
The rear sight contains custom black-outlined tritium lamps surrounding a wider “U”-shaped notch and features a redesigned sight face that’s back-angled with serrations to reduce glare. As an added feature, the rear sight incorporates a “hooked” design that assists with one- handed emergency pistol slide manipulation.
Proprietary testing has shown that most users are appreciably faster at achieving center mass hits on a target with the HD Night Sights than with standard pistol sights. Data shows this regardless of the user’s current proficiency level in pistol shooting, and is due to the ability to obtain a faster focus on the front sight of the HD Night Sights.Trijicon self-luminous Night Sights increase night-fire shooting accuracy by as much as five times over conventional sights. Equally impressive, they do so with the same speed as instinctive shooting– and without the need for batteries.
