Saw this sitting at one of my LGSs today. Already have a M&P 9 in black but the VTAC has always intrigued me. It is used but hardly looks like many rounds have been through it. 553.00 out the door

The sights are something else.....fiber optic on top and tritium on the bottom!

Put close to 200 rounds through it at the range. The first 50 brass was kicking in or close to my face. The last 125-150 it ran fine. Another reason I don't think it was shot much as others have reported the same issue with VTACs when new


Pretty pleased with it for my new range gun!

A coworker picked one up last month. He's been happy with his. The sights are pretty neat too.

I d have to do a little trigger work on it though, Yipes!

Yeah M&Ps are notorious for gritty triggers. This one feels a bit better than my other M&Ps especially my 9c. The break on this one is crisper. The louder and shorter reset is a bonus too.

It's sharp and man do those fiber optic sights really jump out even in the bright sunshine

Nice one, I need to get an M&P. Can you get those sights separately?

I believe you can but they are pretty pricey I think..... Just under 200 maybe?
Ouch, maybe I'll have to try the TFO's instead.

They take a little getting used to. To be honest I don't even notice the Night Sights when shooting. Shot 200 rounds a couple hours ago at the range.

I think they are 250 at the VTAC website but less expensive at other lications

In fairness, the tfo doesn't include tritium under the fiber optic.

Which is good and bad. I can't say how.much effect tritium has in low light, but point shooting and front sight focus plays a big part in self defense shootings.

That said, I want any advantage I can get because luck will still be on my side so let's minimize the effect it has.

Interesting, everything I have read says otherwise. I'll have to research a little further.
