I e-mailed Truglo and asked if they would make some TFOs for the M&P. The reply said they have had many requests for TFOs for M&Ps, and they are in the works.
There was no time frame given.

I have TFO's on my Glock 19 - I really like them

Very bright in both daylight and lowlight conditions and I've carried this gun and so far they've held up well.



If I get a M&P compact I'll probably put TFO's on it.

I had seen their advertisements for them, and it seemed like a good idea, but I didn't know how well it worked in the real world.

I emailed trugo with the same question about 3 months ago and they replied with the same answer. They look like the ideal sights to me. I hope they come out soon!.

I emailed truglo about 5 months ago.. never got an answer. So that's progress at least.. I guess.



The tru-glo sights aren't the best for competition, mainly because they have a large dot, but for self-defense ranges, they should work quite nicely.



wouldn't mind a tru-glo front on a M&P40c

I don't do fiber optic to much anymore, I've broken my share of fibers while shooting, would never use them in a carry gun, but target they would be fine.

The Truglos TFOs seem very well protected for normal wear. Like I said, I've carried this gun for 2 years, used it frequently in IDPA which of course is a lot of drawing the gun. So far no problem.



Now on my exposed HiViz on my Glock 34, I've had that break or come loose a couple of times. But that fiber is obviously exposed to banging around. And on the FO Dan put on for me, I have extra rods cause I know I'll probably break that at some point.

With the truglow, the fiber is basically embedded in a protective shell of some sort. I'm guessing acrylic and epoxy. The net result is even if you crack it, it stays in place. They are a decent design.

I like the TFOs as well but really wish I could just get the front sight as I find the rears just too bright and distracting. My brain get confused pretty easy and 3 dots bouncing around in the dark is just enough to get me thinking too much.



I have found them to be pretty durable.

ditto on the front only. I have no use for overly busy rear sights.

Ok guys I know I seem to be the bearer of bad tiding alot but again I see guns in hard use alot. And IDPA is not hard use. I have seen many TFO's loose the front sight inserts that then leave you with a black hole front sight. Also I have seen and have had many calls from shooters and an instructor who had front sights bend which changes point of impact. This sight is a great idea for a front sight way to bright on the back sight. Think about it the front sight is long and hollow= weak sight. It's a neat idea but not for a hard use fighting gun. For general shooting like matches or plinking match the TFO front with a better rear and it is way cool. CHECK 360 David Bowie

What I did on my back sights was run a black magic marker over the FO. Dulled the sight way down. Much less distaction in the daytime and still great at night. To clairify marker goes on the top of the fiber tube not the back of the sight. This allows much less light to enter the FO.
