I have the Dawson Precision Fixed F/O on mine and they look good, are dead on accurate. I have the factory height of 160 on the front.
On my FS9 I I first chose Williams adjustable and that was a huge mistake. Very tall, wouldn't go in my Blackhawk Serpa and were not accurate.
I now have the primal factory fixed rear and the Hiviz front and it is perfect. Good luck and shoot safe!

I just placed an order for one. Now that I made an account with Hi Viz, how do you log out? All my account info keeps coming back even when I exit the web browser and go back to the website.

$25.99 +shipping at Midway is sure cheaper than the $39.99 + $22.10 for shipping = $62.05 that I paid at Hi Viz. Don't have any choice here, Midway does not ship to Canada.

I ordered the front and rear from Dawson's this week. Rear were in stock but front weren't. Was told the front should be in within a week. I will post pics when I get them.

These are the Dawson F/O sights on my M&P22. The dovetail on the front sight required a little bit of filing on it for a snug fit. The rear sight took a little more filing for a proper fit. But I took it nice and slow to ensure I didn't take too much off and ruin it. They look absolutely great and very little adjustment was needed at the range for them to be spot on.

I also removed the safety levers with a kit purchased here on the forum. It looks much better and matches my other M&Ps. When I first took the M&P22 out for a test fire I almost stripped out the left safety lever when pushing it downwards (it feels a little flimsy to me).

Depending on how tight they are I may or may not try to replace them myself? But I sure like the look of yours! Can't wait to get mine.

Just take it slow and easy and it'll be fine. On the front sight I used a small file. On the rear sight I started with using a file but then switched to my dremel. I used a cutting disc but used the flat part on top instead of the edge to get a smooth surface. I just held the sight in one hand against the flat part of the cutting disc at the original angle (on the front side of the sight). It ended up much easier than the file method and gave me a smooth even surface. Just take a little off each time and check it.

I may take it to a buddy of mines house and try it, he's not a gun smith per say but he's good with this kinda of stuff and makes his own rifles. I'm currently renting and don't have a work bench

Are they making a rear sight for the M&P22 yet? When I looked they weren't and thats why I went Dawson.

Just got done installing Dawson's front & rear sights on mine. I was debating on having a smith do it but don't really have the money and figured I'd try it my self. I have never done this before and found it easier than I thought it would be

Much easier said than done trying to get a pic with one hand an holding the gun in other...LOL

WOW...what a difference from the stock ones! Can't wait to get out and shoot it...maybe tomorrow?
