REAR SIGHT ONLY
These sights are specifically designed for integrated use with the Trijicon RMR red dot system. They are the correct height for use with a properly installed Trijicon RMR. They are made from US Bar Stock steel, precision machined and then finished in black oxide.
The rear sight features the Suarez designed “speed notch” (.150 wide, .120 deep) gives you faster acquisition of the front sight, and thereby the red dot, by allowing more visible light on each side. The rear sight installs with little to no fitting. After alignment, the rear sight locks into place with two machine screws. Add a little Loctite and your sights are easily aligned, usually without the need to use cumbersome sight tools. (Some slides may require a sight tool regardless). The rear sight contains one green vial of tritium, no white outline to distract the eye. The rear and front sight used together create a dot-on-top-of-dot image that is easily seen and is far less confusing than the typical three dots. This is specially so when used in conjunction with a red dot sight. The red dot is usually zeroed so it covers the front dot. Tritium installed by Trijicon.
When used without the Trijicon RMR in evidence, the front face of the rear sight, serrated to 40 LPI in the same fashion as the rear face, allows you to clear your weapons with one hand in case of malfunction.
Made in the USA, Patent Pending design.
SUGGESTED USE WITH TRITIUM FRONT SIGHT
The use of co-witnessed iron sights is a crucial factor in the usability of the red dot on a pistol (sighted at the same point as the red dot). With the traditional placement of the iron sights, sights that the eye has been trained to seek through countless draws in the past, the eye will go to the irons initially as they have always done in the past. The instant the iron sights are picked up, BAM, there is the red dot, and the eye can let go of the irons and use the red dot...ignoring the irons for any further use.
The "visual hand-off" takes place and becomes automatic. The irons serve as "runway lights" or visual anchors to get the eye where it needs to be to pick up the red dot. The Suarez International V3.0 Sights facilitate that visual transition. There are no shortcuts...there is one proven way to operate a red dot system on a handgun.</p
