    Hey Mas,

    I'm wondering if you've had a chance to check out the VTAC Viking sights for the M&P's? They are a six dot sight with fiber optics sitting on top of tritium.

    I know TruGlo sites don't have the best reputation for reliability, so I'm wondering if the VTAC's are a better option to have the "best of both worlds"?

    Thanks

    Tned

    Just got done testing them on S&W M&P9 VTAC pistol, and liked them so much I ordered a set for my M&P 357C. Good equipment!

    best,
    Mas

    What did you think about the VTAC pistol?

    I've become an M&P fan, and was thinking about getting the VTAC in .40 and then if I liked the sites, see about outfitting some of my other M&P's with them (M&P 40c, and 45c)?

    How tall were they? It's hard to tell in the pictures.

    Sights are slightly higher as you can see (VTAC M&P9 on left, standard M&P9 on right) but caused no fit problems in the Blade-Tech holster in which I carried it.
    Don't recall taking an actual measurement of sight height.
