What is tritium and is it safe?

 

Simply put, tritium is one of the most powerful technologies TRUGLO utilizes to make sights bright. It does not need batteries or need to be charged with light. It provides a constant glow for years. This makes it a great technology for emergency equipment like illuminated exit signs, watch hands, and handgun sights.

Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen. It gradually breaks down and decays into helium. As it decays, a small about of energy is gives off. The tritium vials found in gun “night sights” and wrist watches contain a small amount of tritium gas and phosphorus or other photo-sensitive materials. As the tritium breaks down and gives off energy. This energy (ionizing radiation) excites the phosphorus and causes it to glow. This creates a constant and steady glow for years.

The rated half life of tritium is approximately 12 years. This means that after twelve years, handgun sights will be approximately half as bright are when there were first sent to the dealer.

Tritium gas occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It is generally considered to be harmless, except in very high concentrations. The amount of tritium used in in wrist watches and handgun sights falls well below the amount considered to be harmful.

If a tritium vial ever breaks or leaks (which is rare), there is no required clean-up or precautionary handling procedure. Tritium is a pressurized buoyant gas that quickly dissipates and returns to the atmosphere.
Facilities that work with tritium and install tritium vials are heavily regulated by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) to ensure that maximum tritium quantities in a facility are within safe limits and that all tritium-related products are installed and maintained in a safe manner.

Here is an interesting article from guns.com about tritium night sights:

Which TRUGLO® sights fit the Kahr P380 Pistol?

At this time we do not offer sights for the Kahr P380 handgun. We are always evaluating new additions to our product line. Be sure to visit our website and social media pages in the future for new additions to our product line.

Determining Front Sight Thread Size for Shotgun

If you are looking to replace the front sight bead on your shotgun, you will first need to determine the thread dimension of this front sight bead. You should take your shotgun to a local gunsmith, where they can carefully remove this bead, without damage to the bead or shotgun and then make a determination of its thread dimension. Once this is known, you can select from our Star Brite, Long Bead and Fat Bead replacement front sights in thread dimensions of:

 

  • 2.6mm (M2.6×0.45)
  • 3-56, 3.0mm (M3x0.50)
  • 5-40
  • 6-48

 

Remington® Front Sight Replacement Tip

If you are looking to replace the front sight bead on your shotgun, you will first need to determine the thread dimension of this front sight bead. You should take your Remington shotgun to a local gunsmith, where they can carefully remove this bead, without damage to the bead or shotgun and then make a determination of its thread dimension. Many Remington shotgun beads are “press-fit”, and not threaded into the barrel. If this is the case with your shotgun, the bead hole will need to be tapped to accept a threaded sight…we recommend to tap for the 6-48 thread dimension.

 

Once this is known, you can select from our Star Brite, Long Bead and Fat Bead replacement front sights in thread dimensions of:

  • 2.6mm (M2.6×0.45)
  • 3-56
  • 3.0mm (M3x0.50)
  • 5-40
  • 6-48.

These are the most common thread sizes found on most modern shotguns.

Universal Sight Alignment Issue

A lot of this alignment has to do with where the threads on each part begin to engage and of course where they come to full stop.

 

When this happens, it is possible to backfill the original bead hole with a pliable, but firm material that can crush into this hole and at the same time keep the sight secure. This material can take up some of the space and make sure the sight is secured.

 

Gunsmiths will often shave a tiny piece of lead (Pb) from the tip of a projectile and use this to embed the sight within the threaded bead aperture. This is often successful, but care must be taken, if too much material is used, it can be very difficult to remove once crushed.

 

For this reason, a gunsmith may be of great value for this replacement and is highly recommended.

Choke Shot Size

TRUGLO does not recommend using shot larger than US #4 (3.30mm) through our choke models

Shotgun Choke Tube Compatibility

If you shotgun does not appear on our choke capability chart then we either do not offer a choke for the platform or we require information on which choke system your shotgun utilizes. Please contact the manufacturer of your shotgun for their choke tube system compatibility confirmation and come back to us with this information. Once we have this information, we can make the best recommendation.

Measuring Rib Width to Determine Correct Model Sight

In order to best choose a sight to fit your shotguns rib accurately measure (1/100ths inches) the width of this shotgun’s rib where you’d intend to install the front and rear sight(s).

Once you have this measurement, review the available options and determine which sight will best fit your shotgunIf the rib on your shotgun is too narrow/wide for our Pro Series magnum Gobble Dot sight we’d recommend you look at the TG950XD, or TG950X Universal to install on this shotgun. These sights do require the front sight bead to be removed and replaced with the front sight from these kits.
