Every home defense gun should have night sights for that bump in the night situation. That includes your home defense shotgun. And now’s the time to upgrade your Mossberg 500 or Remington 870 with a Tritium bead. XS offers three color options for plain bead and pedestal bead style shotgun barrels.
XS’s color options include white, and photoluminescent Yellow or Orange Glow Dots. White helps overcome color vision issues, reflects the most ambient light, and stands out well on a long barrel. The second-gen dots offer a high-contrast image in bright light, absorbs ambient light, and glows in low light in conjunction with the tritium lamp. Yellow glows the best, while Orange contrasts the best in bright light. Eyesight varies from person to person and some will see one color better than the other.
Your home defense shotgun needs a high-contrast front sight that is easily visible in all lighting conditions. Defensive altercations don’t happen in perfect light or complete darkness. They happen in between these two broad spectrums. Night sights don’t just need to glow in the dark. They need to be visible at all times.
In high-stress situations, you will experience an adrenaline rush that will cause basic motor functions to become clumsy, fixated tunnel vision on the threat, and most likely both you and your attacker will be moving. Combat accuracy is crucial at this point, but people tend to not look at their sights when shooting in this situation. XS’s Big Dot sights ensure the big, colored, glowing front sight will be in your line of sight for a combat accurate view that allows for a simple, sufficient alignment when there is insufficient time and distance between yourself and the threat.
XS Big Dots are an easy, affordable DIY upgrade. Degrease the brass and tritium bead, apply 2-part epoxy generously in the sight cavity, stick it on the barrel, clean off excess epoxy, and let it dry for 24 to 48 hours.
XS’s Big Dot Tritium shotgun beads give you a highly visible sight picture in any lighting condition. It’s a great, low cost way to upgrade your defensive shotgun and be ready for any situation. All XS products are made in Texas and covered by a 10-Year No Questions Ask Warranty Policy.
