Default SHIELD SIGHTS ON A FULL SIZE M&P??

Yes that's what I am asking, NOT full size sights on a shield. I know that the full size rear is wider but what about the rear notch size on ameriglo operators, same notch for FS & shield? How much narrower are shield rear sights compared to a FS? The reason I'm asking is my local gun shop has a bunch of ameriglo sight sets in stock for the m&p shield but has NEVER had any for full size m&ps. If the rear sight width is only a little different between the 2, than I would tell myself "if I put the amerigo shield sights on my full size it would be similar to warren tactical style" where the outsides of the rear sight is cut out to allow more visibility. Haha. The front sight I think may be the same height for both. The gun shop will install for free I buy from them, if I pay for them to order a set it could be months before I see them just because they don't keep up with stuff well. Looking for opinions, let me know what you guys think.

Dovetail cut should be the same, lots of people ran FS sights on the Shield until companies started delivering Shield-specific versions, and width is the only difference. As for how much, I'm not sure, but iirc the FS would hang over about 1/16 on each side in the pics I've seen, so that much less roughly . I don't think you would have any issues.

Awesome. Thanks for the info & the pic. I'm heading up to gun shop in a minute. Only problem is I think I may get a magnifier for my eotech or a 1-4x scope.

Ok here it is for anybody wondering, & has run into the same situation as me where the local gun shop is stocked with sights for m&p SHIELDs but next to none for full size m&ps. These are ameriglo model 245 sights for SHIELD on my m&p 45 full size
