Samson Manufacturing to Supply Israeli Defense Forces with Flip-up, Backup Iron Sights

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

KEENE, NH – Samson Manufacturing announced today that they have been chosen to supply the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) with their flip-up, backup iron sights (BUIS) for IDF M4 Carbines.

Working closely with the IDF, the Samson sights passed rigorous environmental and field testing prior to being assigned IDF Part Number 2888-88124. Significant quantities of this rugged and dependable sight have been in IDF field trials for almost a year. 

These sights differ slightly from Samson’s standard offerings, featuring a slotted mounting screw and modified picatinny clamp. Also, per IDF specifications, the A2-style aperture is mounted such that the small aperture presents when the sight is deployed.

Samson COO Tim Mulverhill confirmed the announcement, “We are extremely pleased to have been chosen to support the IDF with our back-up sights. The IDF operational tempo and physical environment is notoriously hard on small arms equipment. The Israelis thoroughly test their field gear accordingly, and I am pleased to say that Samson sights have met the challenge.”

All work will be completed at Samson’s facility in Keene, New Hampshire. Samson will be adding this IDF version to their regular product offerings as IDF 2888-88124. Interested customers can review the IDF Sight and other Samson products at SHOT Show, booth 20327, in Las Vegas from January 22-25, 2019.

XS Sights Introduces Next Generation Big Dot Shotgun Beads for Home Defense

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

Fort Worth, TX (January 14, 2019) – XS® Sights is pleased to introduce its newest Big Dot® Shotgun Beads for home defense in tritium and non-tritium models.  These next generation sights for shotguns incorporate the company’s leading-edge glow technology to make them the brightest sights in any lighting conditions.

XS Big Dot Tritium shotgun sights are available in two versions – on a pedestal mount for Remington shotguns or in a plain-barrel model that fits Mossberg shotguns.  Both are available in Optic Yellow™ or Optic Orange™.  The patent-pending glow dot on this front sight absorbs light and glows in low light levels before it is dark enough to see the tritium.  A true advantage for any home-defense shotgun.


The new non-tritium Ember™ Big Dot Shotgun Beads are also available in both Remington and plain barrel models in Optic Yellow or Optic Orange.  XS Sights’ proprietary glow technology gives the non-tritium Ember Big Dot a significant performance advantage over fiber optic sights or brass beads in low light conditions, and its large size helps with faster target acquisition.


“The size and brightness of our new XS Big Dot Shotgun Beads allow the user to index the muzzle much faster, and this is critical in high-stress home defense situations when every second counts,” said Zack Kinsley, Marketing Manager for XS Sights.  “We incorporated our proprietary glow technology into these Big Dot Shotgun Beads to transform them into the brightest sights in any lighting condition.”

Optic Yellow is the best option for low light and has the brightest glow intensity.  Optic Orange is the best for bright light settings and offers high glow intensity.


Retail Pricing:

Big Dot Tritium Remington Shotgun, Bead on Pedestal (Optic Yellow or Orange)              $66.00

Big Dot Tritium Shotgun, Bead on Plain Barrel (Optic Yellow or Orange)                            $66.00

Big Dot Ember Remington Shotgun, Bead on Pedestal (Optic Yellow or Orange)               $39.00

Big Dot Ember, Bead on Plain Barrel (Optic Yellow or Orange)                                           $39.00


The new XS Big Dot Shotgun Beads are backed by a 10-year, No-Questions-Asked Warranty.
