XS Sights Introduces R3D 2.0 Tritium Night Sights for Glock and Smith & Wesson Pistols

XS® Sights is pleased to introduce the R3D 2.0 Tritium Night Sights. These new and improved second generation and post-ritio R3D notch sights are designed to provide gun owners with a brighter, stronger set of self-defense sights that are even easier to install than the original models and are built to withstand years of use. EDC use and abuse.

Designed to push focus down, the new R3D 2.0 sights feature significant improvements over their gen 1 counterpart. The two rear tritium dots are larger and brighter than those on the original R3D. The new sights also have a PVC ring that surrounds the taillights for a more defined edge to improve sight imaging and further differentiate the forward point of the taillights. The rear sight is also darkened and notched to reduce glare. When combined with the high-contrast orange or green dual-illumination photoluminescent Glow Dot front sight with a tritium vial, the R3D 2.0 provides more visible indexing for precise alignment. This front sight is wider than many on the market, 0.145”, and its Glow Dot activates after absorbing ambient light to glow in low light, while the tritium lamp is self-luminous, glowing in little to no light for 12 years.

Say goodbye to filing and hammering. New EasyPress features built into the dovetail of the R3D 2.0 rear sight eliminate these steps. XS has combined a crush zone with a leading edge which reduces the force required for installation by up to 50%. The directional cable allows the scope to be pressed more than 1/3 of the way through the dovetail of the slide before making full contact. Once full contact is established between the sight wall and the dovetail, the crush zone begins to collapse, making final installation easier. The new sights also have a BlackNitride finish with twice the corrosion resistance of the original black oxide surface treatment.

“The R3D 2.0 night sights are the best choice for those looking for advanced precision and accuracy in their everyday pistols. Installing them is very easy with a sight pusher and once in place they will withstand years of use,” said Addison Monroe, XS Sights Marketing Manager. “R3D 2.0 is the brightest notch and post option available. These sights are designed to line up quickly and accurately, especially in low light conditions, making them ideal for people who rely on their firearms for self defense in any situation.”

The new R3D 2.0 scopes are currently available for the following:


  • All models: standard height and suppressor height


  • M&P/M&P 2.0 Standard Models (Novak-Style Rear Sight) – Standard Height
  • M&P/M&P2.0 CORE (optic-ready): standard height and suppressor height
  • Shield/Shield 2.0/Shield Plus/Shield OR/Equalizer: Standard Height

CNC machined at XS’s Ft. Worth, Texas, these rugged R3D 2.0 sights are designed to stay on your weapon, after drops and countless rounds fired.
