Rear sight for S&W M&P VTAC model. This extra tall rear sight (.055" taller than standard M&P, .385" total height, .295" net blade height) directly replaces the VTAC rear sight with our plain black rear sight. Extra deep .140" U notch is compatible with the two dot VTAC front sight (.225" tall).
Not intended as suppressor height sight or backup sight for mini red dot optics, nor is this recommended for front sights other than the 2 dot VTAC.
Finished in black salt bath nitrocarburizing for superior corrosion resistance and hardness.

I used the VTAC sight with excellent results on a M&P 9mm shield. My shield shot 3.5in low from the factory and S&W told me that was in spec. After they returned it without rematching the barrel and slide I decided to raise the POI myself. I install a Dawson .140
front sight with factory rear and POI raised to just an inch low. That being the lowest frt.
sight out there I looked for a higher rear sight and VTAC fit the bill.I machined the sides down to just under the shields width and with the dovetails on M&P's being standard 60~
all I had to do was emery down bottom of sight dovetail .006 for a perfect tap in fit. I spoted two dots on sight with a .092 end mill and filled with glo/paint.Gun now shoots with a three dot line-up dead on out to 15yd's, thanks for making the VTAC its made me very happy with my shield now!
