XS Sights Introduces New Line Extensions

Wednesday, July 1st, 2020

Fort Worth, TX (June 30, 2020) – XS Sights is pleased to offer line extensions for its popular second-generation DXT2 Night Sights and a non-tritium rear option in the new DXW2 Night Sights for Glock, SIG SAUER, Smith & Wesson and other select pistol models.  The front sights of all new products feature tritium in the center surrounded by XS’s photoluminescent Glow Dot technology.

For a full list of specific models and part numbers, visit xssights.com/LineExtensions.

Overview of Benefits

Tritium Rear vs. Non-Tritium rear:

The DXT2 Night Sights have tritium in the rear, which provides the brightest indexing point for sight alignment in low light. The DXW2 Night Sights have a white-stripe rear, which reflects light to offer an excellent, bright-light sight picture and provides more affordability for the set. 


Color Options:

The Big Dot variants are offered in Optic Yellow or Optic Orange while the Standard Dots come in green. All front sights feature tritium surrounded by XS’s photoluminescent Glow Dot technology.

Optic Yellow

Optic Yellow is the best option for low light and has the brightest glow intensity. Primarily based on the white light spectrum, Optic Yellow is very reflective and will excite the dot’s photoluminescent properties faster than any other color. The increased surface area of the convex dot increases light absorption, intensifying the charge of the dot’s glow properties, making this a great low-light choice.

Optic Orange

Optic Orange is based primarily on yellow with a hint of red to ensure visibility in low light when uncharged. The increased surface area of the convex dot increases light absorption, intensifying the charge of the glow properties of the dot. Orange is the preferred bright-light choice of many XS customers.


Green is our bridge color for the Standard Dot sights. It glows well in low light and offers vibrant, bright-light sight indexing. This color performs well on the smaller-sized Standard Dot and still manages to focus the shooter’s attention, in any light.

While there are scientific reasons these specific colors excel in certain light, many times, the choice comes down to personal preference and which color an individual’s eye sees best.

Big Dot:

Sized at .188″ and positioned for defensive shooters, our Big Dot front sights are an excellent option for EDC guns or shooters who have vision difficulty and struggle to see their sights. The Big Dot’s provide a distinctive front that offers a great glow and the biggest front sight on the market.

Standard Dot:

Sized at .144″ and positioned for target shooters, our Standard Dot front sights are an excellent option for target guns or shooters looking for a smaller front sight option. 

Suppressor Height Sights

All XS Red Dot Optics (RDO)/Suppressor-Height sets are lower 1/3 co-witnessed for Glock 9mm MOS pistols equipped with a Trijicon RMR or Holosun 507C. The lower 1/3 co-witness minimizes the amount of space the front sight takes up in the optic’s window. XS’s durability and color options allow for greater flexibility and confidence when using suppressor heights as back-up iron sights for RDO. 

Visit xssights.com for a full list of all products and models.

All XS Sights are backed by a 10-year, No Questions Asked Warranty and 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee.

Monday, June 8th, 2020

Fort Worth, Texas: CMC Triggers, the original manufacturer of the AR Drop-in Trigger Group since 2003, today announced the release of the CMC Triggers Suppressor Optimized Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group for the New Hornady 6mm ARC is designed for shooters who demand superior performance weapon components in the heart of their firearm. CMC Triggers manufactures the highest quality firearms components in the industry.

Carrier Assembly: The flared rear of the enhanced bolt carrier is designed to reduce carrier tilt/cant during recoil and increasing reliability by strategically relocating key bearing surfaces.

The CMC enhanced carrier has fewer points of contact resulting in less friction area and the increase in mass ensures proper gas pressures and increases dwell time, thus improving extraction while shooting suppressed or short-barreled rifles (SBRs)

• Case-hardened 8620 steel (complete care is taken during the heat treat process, so as to not harm the metal)
• 3 forward ports, enlarged to allow over pressure to escape
• Optimized for suppressor use
• Black Nitride Finish
• 4130 Steel, attached with Grade 8 hardware, torqued and properly staked into a milled “valley” around a fully encased ejection port area, for added strength and rigidity
• Hardened 4340 cam pin
• Fully chamfered cam pin channel
• Mil Spec firing pin made of AISI 8740 steel, center-less ground and Hard Chrome coated

Bolt Assembly: The Bolt is “true” Mil Spec dimension and external surfaces are CNC ground after heat treat for a precision fit. The bolt is machined to the 6mm ARC (Advanced Rifle Cartridge) Hornady factory round spec. These bolts are held to the highest possible tolerance possible. Outside critical dimensions held to .0005”. The “trumpet” area behind the gas rings, where carbon normally collects, is precision CNC Ground after heat treatment, to ensure as smooth of an area as possible, easing clean up, and longevity.

• 9310 Case Hardened Steel
• All Bolt components Shot Peened & Black Nitride coated.
• 4340 Steel, Manganese Phosphate coated.
• Magnetic Particle Inspected(MPI) and High Pressure Tested (HPT)
• Black Nitride low friction coating.
• Mil Spec Billet Extractor Spring & CRANE O-Ring Upgrade.
• 6mm ARC Advanced Rifle Cartridge from Hornady Bolt. 6ARC Specific

BLACK NITRIDE is a process commonly referred to anonymously with SBN (Salt bath nitride) and sometimes QPQ (quench polish quench).  All of these are a form of nitrocarburizing which is a chemical hardening of steel in short. 

Black Nitride Finish Benefits
• Increased wear resistance
• Improved fatigue strength
• Exceptional lubricity and low friction coefficient
• Withstand corrosion per ASTM spec B117
• Improved lubricity
• Enhanced cosmetic appeal
• Better corrosion protection at equivalent or lower costs than hard chrome nickel plating

Like all CMC Trigger’s products, this is exceptionally well made, much more durable than the standard Mil Spec AR15 BCG, and includes CMC’s Satisfaction Guarantee and Lifetime Warranty.

CMC AR-15 6mm ARC BCG’s are shipping now to dealers and distributors across the country and are expected to move quickly. Anyone interested in acquiring their own CMC AR-15 6mm ARC BCG should act now and contact their local dealer.
