HIVIZ Tactical front sights are machined from solid steel and feature fiber optic inserts for increased visibility. The steel portion of the sight has a square profile to decrease the time to acquire the sight picture. The fiber optic LitePipe is recessed slightly to reduce the halo effect experienced with some fiber optic sight. The LitePipe is protected by a clear resin overmold, making the sight more durable for rugged use like duty or competition. Colored light pipes are not interchangeable on overmolded sights.
