TRUGLOs New TFX Handgun Sight Technology Offers 24-7 Visibility

by Ted Lund


TRUGLO, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of fiber-optic and tritium/fiber-optic handgun  sights has unveiled its new high-performance, virtually indestructible TFX (Tritium/Fiber-Optic Xtreme) technology,  causing a stir among law enforcement, tactical shooting and home defense enthusiasts.

TG13GL1A_NAvailable for a large number of popular handguns, TRUGLO’s patented TFX technology features hi-quality Swiss tritium combined with fiber-optics to provide maximum brightness in bright, low-visibility or no-visibility shooting situations. The virtually indestructible configuration encapsulates the tritium and fiber-optic in a hermetically sealed capsule that protects the components from oils, chemicals, cleaning solvents and ultra-sonic cleaning processes. All of the external components of the TFX Brite-Site handgun sight are precision CNC-machined from steel. TRUGLO’s proprietary “Fortress Finish” provides a permanent protective coating and the result is a unit that is snag-proof, virtually indestructible and fits most standard holsters — and TFX is also backed by an industry-leading 12-year warranty.

An isotope of hydrogen, tritium glows in the dark and is used to illuminate the fiber-optic in the sight when there is not enough existing ambient light. The patented combination of tritium/fiber-optics (TRUGLO’s original TFO technology) provides the ultimate aiming point regardless of light conditions (even in total darkness). Tritium glows continuously and lasts for years providing unmatched visibility in all sorts of low-light and low-visibilty conditions; dusk, dawn or night. No batteries are required and the fiber-optic is concealed for from view from for intended targets.


The unique two-component sighting system consists of a two-dot sight mounted at the rear of the gun and a single-dot front sight . The rear sight features a pair of flanked TFX capsules with black retention rings that aid in quick front sight acquisition. The front sight features a TFX capsule with a white “Focus Lock” ring that assists in low-light visibility for rapid target acquisition and centering.

The new TFX handgun sight technology is available for popular models including 1911 handguns and handguns by Beretta, CZ, FNH, Glock. H&K, Kahr, Kimber, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Sig Sauer, Steyr, and Springfield Armory and Walther. The TFX Handgun sights retail for approx. $172 MSRP.
