Tritium Trilux illuminators Updated:9/9/2019
 
OK here is the thread. Lets take count and when things get to 15 I go get some aluminum order some vials and get machining.
Price is $55 for black anodized 6061 tritium holder and 2Green tritium vials.
O ring, C clip, and shipping included in that price. All you need is an internal snap ring plier to insert these in your trilux and you are done. Thats it, no assembling or nothing.

I am not offering orange, because they are barely visible. You want Orange, then buy an empty holder for $33 and do some experimenting how many vials you can fit in the pocket and if it will be visible.

Just post on this thread how many you want.

Hensoldt piece is much more complicated and not tritium powered, but battery powered.

I will take one complete set. You will advise when these are ready correct? Thank you.

mountainman December 04, 2018 19:25

Just ordered some aluminum O rings and C clips. Will order tritium when funds start to arrive. When material arrives, I'll post addy so you can all send me funds and then I will order the Tritium.

auxpower December 05, 2018 17:49

Similar to this one, although the one I had is marked FKR and the tube is smooth. I don't have any photos handy.

Question. I replaced my old dead glow unit with a battery powered LED. Donít care for the LED unit and would like to replace it with one of these. Not sure what I did with the old glow unit, will this drop in? If so Iím in for one. Payment terms?
Thanks

DrDon December 07, 2018 07:47

Thanks,
Don

Canít find Buddyís webpage for some reason. Are these for the ZF-24? Theyíre much longer than the ones available these days.

brucers99 December 07, 2018 13:28

Iíd love one for the Z24 if it is bright enough. What Iíd really like is a replacement for the Hensolt BLITS tritium unit.

Orion the Hunter December 07, 2018 15:18

I regards to the Longer HK - HW Illuminators...
 
The one posted is a lot longer than what people are use to seeing...because the one posted is Original German Issue Made....vs the cheap LED Chinese Manufactured ones that are crap. I have purchased (3) of the Chinese Models trying to get one to work each and every time....no luck....sometimes they click on, sometimes they don’t.

However, my German Manufactured one clicks on and off reliably each and every time (go figure).

Note that the German Made ones are rumored to not have been exported to the USA....hence finding one is a challenge...and when you do....”Itsa gunna cost ya!”

If you talking about TRilux, all you need to replace the led with this is a Circlip plier for internal retaining rings. I Include it all.

Guys how about we start another thread for the Hensoldt, its getting kind of complicated reading about this item between Tritium orders. So, if we can move all those posts it would be great. Here is the thread.

Trijicon reflex
 
All the early Trijicon reflex sights are long since dead. They are built to last forever, but not the tritium light source. Have you ever considered doing the same thing for them. Maybe some folks here have some solutions

problem is that Trijicon is doing that for free

mountainman December 11, 2018 17:49

Folks put in your orders now so that I know how much tritium vials to order. Once I order tritium that is it.

gentlemanjoe December 11, 2018 18:15

I'll take one complete with tritium vials

bnz43 December 11, 2018 20:18

I will take (1) unit complete with tritium vials.
