The high-profile Vickers Elite Battlesight for the Smith & Wesson M&P® has a .145” wide, deep U-Notch for optimum sighting in low-light, dynamic range conditions and is a perfect match to our .125” wide front sights. The concave, non-reflective rear blade is serrated 40 lines per inch, while the notch area is recessed into a semi-circular pocket for a crisp, protected sight picture. A hardened set-screw ensures this sight will never shoot loose under the most demanding conditions. This snag-free rear sight also has a shelf shape that enables one-hand slide cycling or malfunction clearance and a rugged, non-reflective matte black parkerized finish.
The Vickers Elite Battlesight is available with single dot yellow Tritium and plain black serrated rear blades and your choice of black serrated, green/red fiber optic, tritium and genuine, never dulling gold bead front sight styles.
Once you try this sight system you will be convinced that the Vickers Elite Battlesight is the best performance upgrade you can make to your Smith & Wesson M&P® pistol!

NOTE: Sights may require minor fitting and may not be returned after installation. The Vickers Elite Smith & Wesson M&P® Sight set requires the use of a .165” tall front sight for all barrel lengths/calibers (9mm, .40, .357, 45 ACP) except for Smith & Wesson M&P® PRO/longside versions that use the .180” height. Because of factory variances, sights may require minor fitting and may not be returned after installation. Compatible with the S&W Shield® pistol.
Wilson Combat Vickers S&W M&P rear sights are not compatible with factory M&P Pro C.O.R.E (Competition Optics Ready Equipment) slide models due to the rearward relocation of the sight dovetail position.
The factory standard Smith and Wesson M&P front sight is compatible with the Vickers rear sight but may shoot to a slightly higher POI than the factory rear.
Rear Sight Installation FAQ
Remove the magazine and make sure your pistol is unloaded. Remove and Field strip slide assembly and secure the slide in a padded vise. Remove existing rear sight from left to right with hammer and non-marring punch making sure you do not lose the firing pin safety plunger cap which is under spring tension. Clean rear sight dovetail and press in new rear sight from right to left. If rear sight will not start into approximately 50% of the dovetail you may need to remove very small amounts of material from the bottom and sides of the dovetail portion of the rear sight-usually just a few light passes will do. A safe sided dovetail file, small diamond hone or sanding stick are good tools for this. Go slowly and check your fit. Once you are able to get 50% of the sight base into the dovetail attempt to tap the sight in place with a hammer and non marring punch/dowel (wood, polymer, aluminum) or appropriate sight pusher. If using a steel or brass punch protect the sight/punch with several layers of duct tape. Fine adjust your windage with a rear sight armorers tool or non marring punch. After you fine adjust rear sight windage install locking screw with a threadlocking compound like Loctite on the threads. If the rear sight is loose in the dovetail your dovetail is cut oversize and the new rear sight may require peening on the edges of the dovetail for a proper fit.

|This is an outstanding rear sight||5/5/2021|
|I replaced my M&P sights with this sight and the front with green fiber optic. I use this sight on all my handguns that do not have an optic. Sights are subjective but for me this is the finest rear sight you can buy. The u-notch, the cutout and the shading all work to make this sight accurate and good for rapid acquisition. I also tried the Dawson Sights on my M&P but prefer the Wilson Battesight and the .060 fiber optic rod over the Dawson .040 optic rod.|
