I have a brand new M&P just gathering dust until I can get another set of M&P adjustable sights.

9 inches is a significant deviation even with factory zero'd stock sights.  Not sure switching sights gets after the issue you are experiencing.  My question concerning your set-up is what size backstrap are you using, and have you tried a smaller size?  Additionally are you experiencing the 9 inch offset at 7/15/25 yards?

 

I say this because the issue may be related to heeling during the firing sequence, which will be exaggerated with a larger backstrap.  I went through a similar learning curve when dialing in an XDM 5.25.

I installed a full set of Dawson sights on my 9L. Padded vise and brass punch made it a pretty easy job. I did have to use a steel punch at first to get the factory sight dislodged
