The XS AK front sight is a tremendous upgrade from the factory front sight. This sight from XS Sight Systems features a bright white striped front sight post with a glowing green tritium insert for low light engagements.
White Outlined Front Sight Post
The white outline incorporated into this front sight post helps to immediately draw your eye to the front sight. The white outline makes the front sight easier to pick up, allowing for quick front sight acquisition.
The green tritium inserted in this AK-47 front sight facilitates low light shooting. Tritium is a safe, radioactive material that is self luminous. This means that this material provides its own energy to produce a nice green glow. The tritium does not depend on external batteries and it doesn’t not have to be charged by day light. It will provide a consistent glow regardless of the conditions. The tritium has a half-life of 12 years, ensuring that this sight will produce a glow when you need it.
