Trijicon makes suppressor sights for the M&P. Between those sights, the milling, the refinishing and then adding a red dot; you will have a bunch of money in that gun.Anyone have experience or suggestions (front heights) when it comes to suppressor height sights? I want to put them on at the same time I have my slide milled. This is new territory:dizzy: for me.
I basically went through this thought process when I was considering a red dot for my EDC 9c. My eyes could benefit from the red dot, but the problem my eyes have is at distance. My crystal ball is foggy, but if I need to shoot something that is too far away for my eyes to effectively use the open sights I can also probably disengage. So I asked myself if I really wanted/needed the bigger gun? I never had a red dot installed. But in the right place/right use and on the right gun, as you stated, they are really nice.Today none of my EDC guns wear red dots but all my other guns wear optics of some sort.Then she wanted a red dot. I sent her CZ75 Compact off to Primary Machine to have it milled for a DP Pro, have a tall front sight installed on it and have the slide cerakoted. She shot it great. Very nice groups. But, after a year or so she started moaning and groaning that it was "just so heavy to carry." Got her an M&P 9MM PC Shield and it's another great shooter and she carries it every day - but I'm not spending the money to put a red dot on it till she proves she's not going to carry it from "now on." It costs two much money to have that work done only to switch pistols a year later.
Reminds me, checking on the color that works best for you is important.Thank you for the input. I like M&P with the Apex trigger I am happy with it so without the red dot I'm sticking with her. Will probably shoot a few more red dots (green too) before making the decision. I like being able to see the X and 9 rings at 15+yards. Where today even the skinny Trijicon front sight totally blocks it out.
@Delta-3 - I use to be 30 minutes from Doug's shop. Now I'm in Texas, miss being able to drop off and getting to look at all his 'toys'
