Look no further for your Smith & Wesson M&P Shield Sight Upgrade! These tritium night sights were built to fit your M&P Shield Pistols and give you high visibility and fast target acquisition no matter the lighting condition. Read more below!

Simple Sight Picture Draws your Focus to the Front!

We designed F8 Night sights to increase front sight focus by using a large, high-contrast front post for fast front sight acquisition. The big, vibrant front paired with a wide-notch rear sight allows for greater visibility of the front post in decreasing light levels. The tritium front sight comes with our proprietary photoluminescent orange Glow Dot, which absorbs ambient light and glows in low light situations. The figure-8, 2-Dot alignment system simplifies the rear and draws focus to the front sight for accurate indexing. F8 sights are taller than most traditional sights on the market, providing a more natural sight alignment and serving as backup iron sights for pistol reflex sights.

XS F8 Tritium Night Sight offers an excellent notch and post sight picture that will keep your front sight visible day or night. That way, you'll be ready for the fight, no matter the light.

F8 sights were our first venture at a notch and post sight picture. We designed them to utilize the simple alignment and size benefits of our express sight system. They reduce the flaws of many traditional notch and post sights with the large front blade and wider than usual rear notch. 

F8 sights are CNC machined from solid steel bar stock by our in-house machine shop. We design, machine, and insert tritium to produce the highest quality possible and provide American Made products.

We are a small, second-generation family-owned business based in Fort Worth, TX, and our customers are family. We live, eat, and breathe guns. We offer easy DIY install instructions and a 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee. If you have color vision issues and can't see the front dot, call us, and we will get another color shipped out - over 5% of the population has color blindness to a degree!

    Easy acquisition during the day. I chose this model due to the stacking tritium night sights. No alignment confusion in pitch dark from a 3 light system.

    This is my second set of F8 sites these are great sites for people with older eyes or a stigmatism very easy to pick up and are a little bit more precise than a lot of people give them credit for every person who’s seen these sites are very impressed no matter what age they are, and I know several people are going to be ordering these. I cannot recommend this enough I’ve had just about every brand of night sights made on different pistols. These are by far my favorite.

    The sights are super easy to see an acquire while rapid shooting. EXCELLENT COMBAT SIGHTS !!! The customer service behind these sights are second to none tpp. Twice I have called for help - 1st time I needed a new screw that is used to help secure them on the M&P platform. 2nd time = the front night sight had burned out...I called them, and bam !!! Both times my items were in the mail and shipped to me pronto at no charge. No haggling or questions asked - nothing but someone on the other end of the line truly wanting to help and man did they ! This is an EXCELLENT company who makes the best combat sights on the market, and stands behind their product 100%. You'll love the sights, and be proud to own them and support a business who genuinely cares about it's customers.
