Glock tritium front sights

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm Quetza and I'm a mechanical engineer. I always wanted to create my own airsoft product but never came out with something sturdy and useful.

 

Right now I finished one of my prototypes and would like to know what is public opinion on it.

poll.

 

Thanks for your time.

 

Quetza

Looks nice. I made my own too by drilling out some stock TM Glock sights and then inserting some tritium tubes off eBay (around 8 quid each I believe). Assume you're thinking of using similar tubes here too?

 

I would also conceal the end pointing away from the shooter. You don't want to show up as a glowing dot in the dark at some urban sites.

Hello,

 

I ordered them here, I think they are even cheaper:

tritium

 

The dot is not as bright as you may think, from 2 meter away it's almost impossible to see, specially if you choose red.

 

Anyway you can always put a black sticker or black blu tac, which I did for my rear sights.

First two and last images are renders. Other isn't.

 

Also I bought white tubes and set them inside white Sugru (the hole was around 3mm vs. the 1.5 of the tube) so that I can see them very clearly in normal light conditions. I would not recommend having just the tube as it won't be bright enough for most situations.
