Excelllent sight install read by mp9werks

Just found mp9werks excellent brief complete with illustrations and pictures and tech tips about M&P sight removal and install ...clears up the process and geometry of potential problems encountered and the solutions

So it poses a couple questions in my ancient mind .... and looking for your experiences in sight replacement/brands

A. Are the dovetails cut by S&W in the M&P9 Shield front and rear sight positions reliably consistent ?

B. If so ...is there a manufacturer of aftermarket night sights whose manufacturing tolerances reliably match S&W's dovetails

C. NO to #A and #B and you can count on having to properly hand fit/size most all aftermarket sights to the dovetails

I ask these questions while my on order M&P9 Shield is not even in hand yet ...having shot other 3 white dot sights and finding my eyes battling the dots and the framework the dots are mounted in

I have shot so many years in competition with black blade and rear notch and 6 O'Clock hold that I keep crossing back and forth between the dots and the dot housing sight picture

So I am hoping the bright TruGlo TFO sight will dominate the eye

Pure close combat ...I would just go for a dominate big front sight ,,,but I am shooting coyotes in the 100 yard and under ranges and do need a good precise sight picture

Thanks

Replacing sights is very common, and I don't think I've ever heard of a mismatch from poor manufacturing.

The tolerances are very tight, sp nothing moves around, which makes it an effort to sldie them out an in...but it's done quite often. I had no issues, sliding the stock Hi Viz out and the TruGlo in. Both shot very accurately.
