Specifications and Background of Night Fision Suppressor Height Sights

Night Fision, a newer player in the sight market, introduces suppressor height sights that balance stature with sleekness. Crafted from stainless steel and featuring the “perfect dot” technology, these sights promise durability and consistent performance in various lighting scenarios.

These sights, coated with black nitride, are designed for compatibility with optics-ready stealth setups and co-witness selectors. They incorporate Swiss Tritium and come with options for dot-over-line (Costaludis) and dot-over-dot (Student of the Gun) styles, offering a range of preferences. Additionally, these sights are equipped with aluminum sleeves and provide choices for rear ring colors, ensuring compatibility with Glock pistols, Springfield Armory models, and ease of installation using the RealAvid Master Sight Pusher for standard height sight installation.

My Review of Night Fision Suppressor Height Sights 

The standout feature of Night Fision night sights is their unparalleled brightness, especially in low-light scenarios. I recall the stark difference between my previous sights and these luminous tritium-powered vials. The glow emitted in darker settings is nothing short of impressive and provides an invaluable layer of security.

Crafted from high-quality steel and materials akin to bulletproof glass, these sights exude durability. They feel robust, a testament to their resilience, ensuring they can withstand the rigors of frequent use without compromise.

Precision is non-negotiable when it comes to firearm accessories. These Night Fision sights have greatly enhanced my accuracy, particularly when paired with a red dot. The co witness capability maintains clear visibility through the red dot while offering excellent clarity for iron sights when necessary.

I love how they fit seamlessly into various setups. Whether it’s for an optics-ready stealth rig or a co witness selector, these sights just click into place without any fuss.

During daytime shooting, especially with the yellow variants, these sights are not the best. Their real magic lies in low-light conditions, where their tritium-powered glow truly shines, but their performance during the day, especially in well-lit conditions, might not blow you away as much as their nighttime glow.

The dot-over-line and dot-over-dot styles give you choices that suit your shooting style. Plus, the options for rear ring colors and compatibility with different firearm models add that personal touch to your setup.

They don’t just look and feel sturdy; they actually last. I’ve put these sights through some serious shooting sessions, and they’ve held up impressively well without compromising their performance.

They might pack a punch, but they’re not a headache to install. With the right tools and a bit of precision, you can set these sights set up without a hassle. During installation, I followed a process similar to that of Glock sights, requiring precision and specific tools. Utilizing a sight pusher might streamline the installation process, though opting out didn’t significantly impact the overall performance.

The lower third design of these sights struck a balance between providing a clear view through the red dot and maintaining iron sight visibility, a notable advantage during varied shooting conditions.

Let’s be real, these sights aren’t the most budget-friendly. While they’re worth the investment for their performance, they might stretch the wallet a bit for some shooters. Considering their longevity and the security they provide in low-light scenarios, I would say they are a worthy investment but your mileage may vary.

Transitioning from standard sights to these suppressor height ones might take a bit of getting used to, especially for shooters accustomed to different sight profiles.

Night Fision Suppressor Height Sights Pros and Cons 

  • Suppressor Height – If you are running a suppressor, you will need taller sights so you can aim.
  • Bright Front Sight – The bright outline around the front tritium of the front sight attracts your eye.
  • Co-witness – Depending on your optic set up, these may co-witness with your red dot sight.
  • Tall – If you are not using a suppressor, these stick out more and can snag on clothing or gear.
