HIVIZ Shooting Systems has announced the new FastDot H3 pistol sight, which instead of a traditional blade centered in a notch, uses a circle within a circle.

About the new FastDot H3, the company said: “HIVIZ has raised the bar for firearm enthusiasts, by introducing a reliable sight that is bright, easy to acquire and fast when you need it most.”


The FastDot H3 provides the user with faster sight acquisition out of the holster and positive sight alignment feedback through conventional sight alignment. As mentioned, instead of a traditional blade centered in a notch, this sight uses a circle within a circle. As the shooter brings the front sight into alignment with the rear, the front red sight disappears behind the rear sight, leaving behind a glowing green circle, which alerts the shooter of positive alignment. In addition, the low-profile design is compatible with standard holsters.

With tritium and fiber-optic front and rear sights, the FastDot H3 provides 24-hour illumination for a bright and visible sight picture and easy target acquisition right out of the holster, during day or night. Shooters can confidently align, aim and manufacture precise shot placement in any light or high stress environment.

“Since 1996, HIVIZ has sought to improve the art of shooting through simple, yet innovative products for rifles, pistols and shotguns,” HIVIZ President and Founder Phil Howe said. “With the popularity of red-dot sights increasing over the last decade we saw an opportunity to use our expertise in iron sights and bridge the gap between traditional iron sights and red-dot sights. That’s when the FastDot H3 sight set was developed. This sight set offers the simplicity of a red-dot sight system while eliminating the bulk, it doesn’t require batteries and allows for faster sight acquisition right out of the holster. It is quickly becoming a favorite among many who require simplicity and speed from their sight sets.”

Four models of the HIVIZ FastDot H3 are available now, each with MSRP at $175. The first two are for the Glock and Glock MOS in 9 mm, .40 S&W and .375 Sig. Another fits the Smith & Wesson M&P compact, full-size, Shield and Shield Plus pistols in all calibers (does not fit optic-ready models, 9EZ or EZ 380). In addition, there is a model that fits SIG Sauer P320 9 mm pistols with fixed sights only (not optic-ready models).
