Williams Gun Sight is a manufacturer of gun sights and other gun accessories. The company makes traditional sights for rifles and pistols, as well as "FireSights," which glow in the dark for lowlight shooting. These sights can be installed or removed as needed from a wide variety of guns. While there are thousands of variations in guns and gun sights, the installation process is generally the same for most models with dovetail slots.
