NEW Fusion Ghost ring tritium Sight




We had a customer with some special needs and he wanted a full ghost ring style sight for combat shooting. There was really nothing on the market that suited his requirements so we decided to design our own and put them into production… The result is this rugged ghost ring sight with Trijicon tritium inserts and white outline ring. The rear dovetail is the standard .495 x 65 degree Novak dovetail cut. We mounted one on the customer’s pistol we are finishing up and it really looks works really great. We will have more pictures soon and will be posting them on the website within the next few days.

I'll second that. Tritium front, black rear would be my choice.

What a great idea!!!!! Love it, and it doesn't look to be so big that it distracts the shooter or one carrying it.

The front is a trijicon tritium with white ring, not a XS big dot.

Bob,


Is it possible to take 2 pics?.......Looking through the sights with the focus on the rear sight on one and the focus on the front on the other.



Just wondering what the sight picture would look like. Thanks. Tracy

Thanks for the purchase. These have been a real hit with the folks that like the ghost ring style sights..... We have also had requests for these to fit a Kimber and several other base configurations and we are working on those. We will post them when available. Thanks again for all the great feed-back...

I like Fusion a lot but the fit of that sight to the slide is pretty poor. Nice sight but terrible mating of contours.

Just finished installing these on my SR1911. A small amount of fitting with a safe sided triangular file and using the Glock sight pusher, they snugged right in. Took about an hour. Can't wait to try it, darn these early sunsets.

Ghost ring update.... We sold out of the first 2 production runs of the Novak style base Ghost rings, but we have made another run and they are back from trijicon and back in stock. For all those who have been asking for the kimber style base, yes we are making them. We had to make a new holding fixture for some of the milling operations and should have these underway shortly. Thanks again for all the support!!

Bob, you need to update your "location" to Fl, not NY

I would love to know where you get your comparisons because I just perused the photos and every major brand shows plenty of rear sights with the same or much worse fit...

Don't tell me, you are a Bob hater???
