HiViz Develops New Generation Handgun Sight

HiViz Shooting Systems (a division of North Pass Ltd.), has announced the third generation of light-gathering sights.

“We have developed a cutting-edge new design that combines the durability of our overmolded sights with the versatility of our interchangeable LitePipe sights,” says Trevor Young, Product Manager.

This unique new sight design features a skeletonized steel sight body which protects the LitePipes and gives it the strength of the popular overmolded series of sights. Another important feature of the new design is the internal locking mechanism that has been machined into the sight body. “The locking feature will provide the highest level of reliability and longevity of the LitePipes,” adds Young. The result is a sight with superior light gathering capability that allows you to choose a color to best suit your personal preference or existing lighting conditions.

The new line maintains many of the other features HiViz sights have become known for, including a ramped and serrated sight blade with a square profile and LitePipe brightness that is even effective in low light conditions. It now fits select models of Smith & Wesson, Glock, Ruger and Springfield handguns with plans to expand to other brands and models in the coming months.

These new sights, along with other HiViz shooting accessories, are available through selected sporting goods stores and at

HiViz Shooting Systems manufactures light-gathering sights, recoil pads and accessories for the shooting industry.
