Default M&P Fiber Optic Sights

For those that are using or have used. I am looking at purchasing fiber optic sights for my full size m&p40, (I don't remember the brand.) Is it better with just a front sight or with the front and rear sights both fiber optic? red or green? Thanks

I've switched the front on my 9Pro with the Dawson, Novak would be another one to look at. I prefer just the front with a plain black rear on my guns.

Dan Burwell put a Dawson on mine; a narrower blade and smaller spot than what S&W uses on the Pro.
I prefer F.O. front and black rear.

I haven't had them on my M&P, but I had a Glock 35 with a set of Tru-Glo f/o sights on it and I loved them. I believe they were red/green and it worked great for target shooting.

Now if Tru-Glo would just....(Sorry? Everyone's used to my ranting about them NOT making a F/O with Tritium insert for S&W guns)
Till then.....
Novak Fiber Optic Sights

Were I doing it, I'd go the Novak Wide Notch rear (plain black) and your favorite color choice up front.

Default What about HiViz?

HiViz sells a front sight for the M&P which can be bought at Midwayusa for about $30. I am curious how well they work with a holster. I have a fobus that works great with the factory setup sights. What is the thought pattern for chosing red vs green?

Personal preference. I prefer red because I can see them a little better, but I have a little green/blue color confusion with my eyes.
