TRUGLO TFX : Unmatched Brightness and Durability
by Craig Lamb
While fiber-optic sights for handguns are lifesavers in low-light shooting situations, they have advantages in bright light too by offering a sharp contrast between target and gun.
Unfortunately, some manufacturers’ sights can become a liability shooting scenario, quickly transitioning from dark to light and back to dark. The dramatic shift can alter target acquisition and ultimately compromise the shooter’s safety.
When a shooter must face both scenarios with lesser sights — as in law enforcement — the results can be lethal.
Firing a handgun under changing light conditions is no longer an issue thanks to TRUGLO’s exclusive, patented TFO (Tritium/Fiber-Optic) technology. Fundamentally, TFO maintains fiber-optic illumination in the lowest of light conditions.
TRUGLO’s new TFX sight series — with TFO technology— is the most extreme application of this industry-exclusive technology. TFX with TRUGLO’s patented TFO technology are the only sights that are known in the industry, besides TRUGLO’s original TFO sight series, to allow for transition from light-to-dark and dark-to-light shooting conditions without losing the sight picture.
A glowing example of TFO technology is found in the TFX tritium/fiber-optic, day/night sight series. The TFO technology contained in the TFX sight series is the first and only of its kind. Patented TFO technology is encapsulated inside a hermetically sealed and virtually indestructible capsule. The capsule is impervious to oils, extreme cleaning solvents and even ultra-sonic cleaning processes, making it the most rugged and durable tritium/fiber-optic sight available anywhere.
The result is unmatched visibility in all shooting conditions. TRUGLO uses the world’s best Swiss tritium for maximum brightness.
The new TFX sight combines the existing TFO technology with even more beneficial user features. The TFX series is more compact than ever with a longer sight radius for tighter groupings. Shooters also get a high visibility white ring, FOCUS-LOCK, located around the front sight, which assists in low-light visibility and rapid target centering and acquisition. At the rear, black retention rings enhance front sight acquisition.
Powered accessories require the user to be aware of when batteries need replacing. Maintaining that awareness is unnecessary with the TFX sight series with TFO technology, however. That’s because the technology works without batteries.
