XS Sights Renames RAM Sights to R3D Night Sights

Effective immediately, XS Sights is changing the name of its 3-Dot RAM Night Sights to R3D Night Sights.

XS Sights Renames RAM Sights to R3D Night Sights

Due to a trademark issue, XS Sights is changing the name of its 3-Dot RAM Night Sights to R3D Night Sights. The name change is effective immediately. XS is also introducing R3D Suppressor Height sights for Glock pistols.

“We always like to be smart with our resources and lengthy litigation wasn’t the way to go,” said Zack Kinsley, Marketing Manager for XS Sights. “To our support channel, please know it will not affect our forward momentum. We are excited to announce the new suppressor height line extensions for popular LE and aftermarket pistols, and we plan to continue with the R3D product line full speed ahead.”

The radioactive material night sights have a traditional 3-dot tritium and notch and post sight picture. The rear sight is blacked out to increase contrast against the front sight, which is available in bright orange or green. XS’s proprietary Ember Glow Dot technology allows the front sight to absorb ambient light and glow in low light. The front tritium lamp in the R3D sight also charges the Ember Glow Dot, making the front sight glow brighter than the rear, keeping one’s focus down range.

Other advantages of the R3D Night Sight:


  • The brightly colored Ember Glow Dot in the front sight is a much brighter color which differentiates the front dot from the two rear dots.
  • The notch is 15% wider than the front sight, allowing more visible light around the front sight. This makes it easier to see the front sight in changing light conditions and when shooting on the move, aiding in sight alignment, and increasing accuracy.
XS-R3D-Sights

R3D Night Sights are CNC machined from bar-stock steel and treated with a rust-preventative coating making them extremely durable and reliable additions to your firearm. The R3D sights fit standard holster options and are designed for simple installation by hand or with a sight pusher tool.


R3D Night Sights offer end users many ways to install their own sight sets including file to fit, the gunsmith way, budget methods, or by sight pusher tools.

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

KelTec P17 22LR Pistol – Feature Packed, Accurate & Fun to Shoot

If you're in the market for a 17-round, compact .22LR pistol that's feature packed, then the P17 is definitely an option for you. At less than 14 ounces fully loaded, and barely longer than a dollar bill, the P17 is concealable for pretty much anyone. The threaded barrel, Picatinny-style accessory rail, ambidextrous safety, ambidextrous magazine release and three (3) 16rd magazines come standard. That's a lot of value added in such a small package.
