Default S&W 5906 & LPA Sights

Anybody have experience with the LPA adjustable sights? As seen here....

LPA TPU Rear Sight S&W 3rd Generation Semi Auto with Novak Rear Sight 9mm Luger, 40 S&W Steel Blue 3-Dot - MidwayUSA

My 5906 hits a bit low given my preferred load and 6'Oclock hold so I'm considering adding this rear sight.

Any thoughts are appreciated!

I have used them on a S&W 9MM and a 10MM. Work fine. May require a little fitting, depending on the gun...

I have some LPA adjustables on a STI 1911. THey have held up well and hold their adjustment. Plan on putting a set on my 5906 soon.

I have not had a chance to ever use them, but I have never heard anything bad about 'em. If you definitely want to go the adj sight route, they seem to be a good choice. I think the quality is definitely there, but not as low profile as the fixed sights.

Well, I went ahead and ordered a set for both the 5906 and 4566. I'll see how they do and report back!
