In August, I had TRUGLO Brite-Site TFO (tritium fiber optic) night sights installed on my M&P Shield. I haven’t done any nighttime shooting, but I do find they’re easier to see in an indoor range. The combination of tritium with the fiber optics has been nice since it increases the brightness of the sights regardless of the lighting conditions. The sights are just a touch wide for the Shield since they’re designed for the M&P line rather than the Shield specifically, but haven’t caused any problems (snagging, etc.). I chose green, but they’re also available in yellow.
One of the reasons I chose to upgrade my sights when I did was that the white paint got knocked out of my front sight. It was still possible to align the posts to aim, but I find it faster and easier to get on target with the bright front dot. It’s also easy to spot the gun in the gun safe if I happen to open it in the dark. In the time since the sights were installed, I’ve carried the gun daily and shot it often. So far, no problems.
