Default Performance Center M&P Sight Questions

Smith & Wesson Performance Center Ported Slide Kit - S&W M&P 4.25" Barrel, 9mm, Black Amornite Adjustable (BH)

I'm wanting to buy some Tritium front/rear sights for the two slides. However, I'm looking online, and I'm not sure what sights will fit on the Performance Center Slides. Can anyone help me figure out what I should be looking for to make sure the sits will fight those slides?

It is really personal preference, but to give you an idea:

If the slides are NOT C.O.R.E. then
both listed handguns will accept the same sights and the sights don't have to be "Performance Center" rated.
Just look for Smith & Wesson M&P sights. (not "Shield")

I've been using few different bands, but Trijicon HD are the best for me. You may like them too.
You can look at Truglo TFX, which some people like better.

Good luck.

Are you sure the sites would fit like the normal slides would? The front sites look like they have the same measurements, but the rear sites are different than the OEM slide. OEM slide has a wide slide fitment, the Performance center one is skiny on the rear.

I might have found the issue on why it is different than my older stock Slides. On the performance Center slides, it doesn't have CORE anywhere, but when I'm looking at it from the top down, on the optic Plate, it says, 'CORE' on it. So I'm assuming my two performance center slides are CORE?

Very confusing since it doesn't list it anywhere on the box, or in the paperwork inside the box that it's CORE. Haha.

So am I safe to think that my slides are CORE since it says CORE on the top slide OPTIC plate?

Quick question, I've only been able to find one site that isn't sold out.

-

Trijicon Bright & Tough™ Suppressor Sights - Smith & Wesson M&P C.O.R.E
-SKU: SA240-C-601011

-

Here's the site I've only been able to find it on. I think this is the correct part, what do ya'll think?

Trijicon Bright & Tough Night Sight Suppressor Set | Up to 15% Off 5 Star Rating w/ Free Shipping

-MPN:601011

Is the MPN the same as the SKU code from above?

Check this article, it somehow explains difference between slides. CORE, basically means that slide has cut out for optic covered with plate. As you look closer on rear sights cut out - CORE version needs shorter rear sight, otherwise it would stick way back out of the slide.

If you post PN (or SKU) from the box, we can verify if your models are C.O.R.E. or not.
I don't like C.O.R.E. versions so never actually looked for their sights. It may happen that you will end up with "suppressor ready" which are a little taller that regular sights.

Those are the same.
MPN - Manufacturer Part Number
SKU: Stock Keeping Unit - number used by seller, but mostly it contains MPN for easier recognition.
