Whether you're out in the field or at the range, essential firearm components can help you remain on target. While many pistols, rifles and shotguns are factory installed with rear sights and/or front sights, some come ready for you to customize with your preferred gun sight model. For example, some universal front sights simply replace the bead at the front of your gun's barrel. In selecting a sight for your weapon, be sure it's designed to fit your specific mount or firearm model as well as your holster of choice.
Just like your weapon, your sights should be tough enough to handle what you have in store. Low-profile, 1-, 2- and 3-dot sights made with lightweight, sturdy metals and shock-absorbing designs are built to weather most anything without adding too much bulk to your firearm. While fixed sights are simpler to use, some offer spring-loaded, flip-up designs that allow quick engagement when you're ready. If you'll be out in the wild, consider models that offer wind and elevation adjustments for enhanced accuracy at longer distances.
Don't let the setting sun put a damper on your accuracy. Equip your weapons with fiber-optic sights that glow in the dark. While many are equipped with a green fiber-optic rod, some come with orange and red rods that can be swapped out to suit a variety of lighting conditions and preferences, while others feature dual-color fiber optics for easier targeting. Self-illuminating designs require no batteries, so you won't have to worry about running out of power when you need it most.
