Will you be making Speed Sights for other brands?

The plan is to make Speed Sights Diamonds fit all handguns. As above, they are now available for Glock, XD/XDM and Sig Sauer.

High on the list are the 1911’s with Novak cut sights, like the Kimber or M&P; we have also gotten requests for HK; Kahr, Ruger, Beretta and others.

Send us an email with your request, it will help us to know what caliber to do next. Check the website for further production updates.

Check for models now listed in the STORE section of this website.

Are Speed Sights difficult to install?

The Diamond series installs like any other metallic sight. All Speed Sights come with instructions specific to your gun. There are a few tips that are important to know about. Please visit the Installation Tips page for more details or call with your questions.

Can I get a Tritium night sight set for just the front, and have standard, non-Tritium for the Rear?

Yes. You can purchase the front and rear separately so you can customize your sights. You can see what’s available and choose your options in our STORE section.

Are Speed Sights adjustable for windage and elevation?

The rear sights are available in different heights to accommodate different calibers and custom zeros. The Rear sights can all be drifted left or right for windage.

My front sight has gotten coated with powder residue; how should I clean it?

The front sight is armored with a special protective coating that is resistant to solvents and water. Dab it with a Q-tip dampened with water to remove powder residue.

International Sales

All international sales of Speed Sights must be made through our licensed “ITAR” dealer. They have the special export license from the United States government to export Speed Sights under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations. There is an extra 50 dollar fee added to the normal cost of the sights that must be charged to cover the cost of the time, paperwork and other mandated administrative actions needed to follow the ITAR regulations.

Our export policy and ITAR dealer information is below.

Export Policy:

The sale, transfer, transportation, or shipment outside of the U.S. of any product prohibited or restricted for export without complying with U.S. export control laws and regulations, including proper export licensing, documentation or authorization, is strictly prohibited and may result in civil penalties and/or constitute a federal crime. Advanced Design / Speed Sights will not engage in any transaction that requires the illegal export of any products and will not assist directly or indirectly with the illegal export or re-export of any products.

Explanation of ITAR fees from our ITAR specialist: 

We would like to explain that exporting gun related parts to foreign countries is tightly controlled by the U.S. Department of State.  It is not as simple as just putting the sights in an envelope and mailing it to the user. The paperwork for proper registration and documentation that is required for export is expensive and time consuming. Some of these fees are passed on to the consumer.  Basically, our expenses are the same for shipping one set of Speed Sights as it is for 100 firearms. Thank you for your understanding.
