gglass, are the Diamond sights a little taller than the stock sights?I very highly recommend Diamond Speed Sights if your eyes are like mine and fading with age. Not only are the sights larger than most other sights on the market, they are actually some of the most precise. This is done by using diamond shapes instead of round dots, and the shooter simply needs to line up the points of the diamonds on the front and rear sight, while keeping your target sitting on the infinity point of the front sight. It is almost like having cross-hairs on the pistol.
I put Diamond Speed Sights on all my pistols that accept them. Once I got hooked there was no turning back.
PS. This image shows just how reflective the sights are in a regular daylight (indoor) setting. They also have tritium version, but I have not needed those sense I utilize a weapon light for evening work.
OK, thanks. I just shot my new M&P 22 for the first time yesterday and the stock sights are very difficult for me to see, and they are just barely tall enough to clear the suppressor. A few thousandths taller would be fine. I'm going to call Speed Sights now.They could be slightly higher to accommodate the diamond shape, but I never did measure to check that. If they are taller, you really don't notice it during carry or during firing.
Just ordered a bottle of Glow On original. Also have a set of the Speed Sights coming for my M&P 22. Old eyes need help.I use Glow-On which will function as really bright night sights if you "charge" the sights for several minutes with a super bright flash light AND you can't believe how incredibly bright they are in daylight!
One of my shooting buddies was having a really hard time with the rather dull white dots on her pistol so I did the Glow-On treatment for her. She was ecstatic.
If you put a couple coats of clear nail polish after you have the proper number of coats (dots) of the Glow-On and it has cured, you have pretty darned permanent bright gun sights. For less than $10 for the little bottle
