My smith replaced the factory sites with the tru-glo TFO nite sites. I found them on line for $75.00 and $20.00 for the smith to install them. Also he is a very busy smith and I tipped him $5.00 as he did them right away while I waited so total cost $105.00 installed. I am happy with them, however at the indoor range the fiber optic part does not light up very bright as the lighting does not come from directly above. the tritium work great in very low to no light, and the fiber optic also work great in bright to low light. They are longer sites but they seem to holster well I only have 100 rnds thru my M&P40c with these sites so time will tell. They seem sturdy enough and I can rack the slide off of my belt one handed with them. The great thing is I was shooting a little to the left and the smith got the sites where they needed to be and now the gun is spot on. would I recommend them U bet

I did Truglo TFO's on my M&P 40. Great sights day or night and everything in between.

I agree at the ranges I have been to also, I have a hard time seeing them also. But at home and everywhere else they are great

I just ordered a set of Ameriglo I-Dot Pro sights for my 9c. They should be here next week along with my new sight pusher.

I had looked at the Tru-Glo TFO's, but they get mixed reviews. I've read alot of posts regarding the fiber optic tubes falling out and a bunch more about the poor quality of Tru-Glo's customer service. The combination of the two made me exclude them from my list.

I had a set on a 1911 several years ago and liked them them for quick close shots, but the dot can cover a large part of the target if you're shooting at something small or far away.

I wouldn't hesitate to run them again though, and almost ordered a set instead of the I-Dot Pros.

I have Trijicon tritium night sights on my 40FS. They are nice and bright, even in pitch black dark.
I installed them myself without too much hassle. You need a hammer and a brass punch.
Pricey, but worth it. I bought mine at Gander, so I'm sure I overpaid some. You can probably get a better deal online. I would have ordered a set online, but I had the itch and Gander had 'em in stock (those b*stards).
--------------------------------------------------------------
Whichever sights you settle on, if you do it yourself:

To get them OFF, go LEFT to RIGHT.
To go back ON, go RIGHT to LEFT.
Left and right are determined by the way you hold the gun to shoot it, from behind the gun (the serial number is on the right side of the gun) - not trying to be insulting here, only helpful.

Make sure you don't let the small disc and spring for the striker block pop out from under the rear sight.
The rear sight has a set screw, the front sight just presses in, and you have to give it a pretty good whack to get it to move.
A small pencil mark is helpful to realign the new sights.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Whatever you do, good luck & enjoy.
