Hey all, my first question...I'd like to order a set of sights for my m&p, wanting to go with night sights, but worried about all light conditions as I'll also be shooting it alot at range and hopefully competitions (idpa,uscca etc)...any suggestions or anything I should stay away from? Wondering if I should get adjustable, what shows up best at range and night, etc...thank you in advance!

For gun games, this ^ is the best setup I have found. I prefer red rods, but you can buy a bunch of rods on Amazon and try them out.

My dedicated SD guns have Ameriglo CAP sights. I have found while tritium is nice, it is not the end all be all for night sights. If you use a handheld light and temple index or FBI hold, there is enough light on the sights that tritium is not needed. With WML, usually enough splash back to see sights as well.

Bottom line if you are solely relying on tritium sights only without a white light in very dark conditions, you probably are not PID'ing your target (and beyond). They do help you pick them up in LL though.

first off, greetings from pa turnpike exit 343.


second...competition shooting vs low light defensive are probably as mutually exclusive as You can get. comp sights are a matter of preference...big time.


as for tritium, I went with meprolights on all of mine. for range use (in and outdoor), never had issues with night sights. all of my 1911s had them and, when I left the Paleozoic era, I put them on all of my m&ps.


for comp sights? I would strongly recommend that You try a few out...ask others if You can see them...You may find out that You rule out a lot, before wasting time, and shelling out good old legal tender for no good reason.

Hackthorns It's a big orange dot on the front for daytime then at night they have the tritium that glows very bright, pair that with a black rear and you have a fast set of sights.

I've been using the Tru Glo TFX Pro for a while now. I really like them. They are fiber optic and tritium so you get great day and night visibility. Some people don't like the U notch on the rear sight of the TFX Pro, but but have several different options.

sights

I had Night Fision on my 2.0 C.

The rear sight had brighter tritium than the front which I didn't like.

Night Fision wouldn't help me out so I switched to HiViz H3's.

Very happy with my choice.

Bright in daylight and at night.

Good Luck
