Comments about Meprolight: Smith & Wesson, TRU-DOT Adjustable Night Sight Set for K, L, N Frame Revolvers:

Installing the front sight was as expected - you'll need a 400 grit stone to wear down the back of the sight until it fits the dovetail. Tapping it into position with a layer of Loctite 609 makes it a solid fit that won't shake loose under any conditions.

However, I didn't expect the plunger hole in the adjustment screw head on the rear sight to be too small to fit the plunger. And don't bother purchasing a S&W replacement screw kit because it doesn't have the proper thread count to screw into the rear sight blade - this is a custom thread count for no reason. No, you'll have to carefully drill out the screw head with a 5/64" bit so that the plunger will depress completely into the opening. There's really no excuse delivering a poorly machined part, especially when the issue is the wrong size hole drilled in a screw head.

So, overall I like Meprolight (I've installed these sights on my HK P30L and S&W M&P 9 Pro pistols with excellent results), but the revolver installation is not straight forward. Yet, with the machine work out of the way, my semi-custom S&W 686 with Tru-Dot sights is now my primary home defense weapon.
