I had replaced my M&P front and rear sights with Truglow TFO which I really like. The stock bright white sights are very good but the Truglo's show up really well day or night. The front sight looks to be pretty centered. It's hard to find a reference point from which to measure center on both sides with a vernier caliper so I used a combination of caliber/eye sight. I did the same on the rear. The gun for me is shooting a little left most of the time. When would you adjust the front sight and when would you adjust the rear? Apparently there are no elevation adjustments possible.

Center the front sight then adjust the rear as necessary to correct windage error. Lay the slide on a flat surface then use caliper to measure from sight to flat surface. Turn slide over and measure from other side. When both measurements are equal it will be centered.
