Sight question

I am using 10-8 rear with THEIR Trijicon front.

On another P99 I may go with the same rear BUT a Mepro front. Are the Mepro fronts ALL the same for the P99, PPQ, PPS, PPX? Thanks. Anyone know the dimensions for the front - you know - Meprolight front sight for the P99.

Meps used to make two sight sets for the Walther line up...
not sure if they still do.... any Walther front sight from Meps will fit your P99, you may get different sight height in different models...
hope that helps
the ML-18802 I have here is marked for the PPS and front sight is 4.10mm
factory steel front sight #4 is 3.82 mm
and this trijicon I have here is 5.20mm

Just saw this thread:

I use the 10-8 sights on my P99as also, but the fibers...particularly the green.

I had considered the Trijicon HD's, but went with 10-8. I know that they offer just the front also, and believe that they are the same dimensions as the factory set: but surely not certain.

Just a question, but what DON'T you like about the 10-8 night sight? I have been considering the night sight setup in lieu of the fiber.

Just wanted to try something different that MAYBE stood out in daylight. The 10-8 front is meant to be a simple post in daylight. That's all. I wouldn't mind trying truglo if you could buy the front by itself.

Perhaps the HD sight is the way to go.
The lime or orange are easy to find in daylight.

I have Trijicon HD Orange on the XDs 3.3" and the PPQ 45. Those are truly amazing because they allow for instant on target alignment without the need for rear sight alignment. That, for me, is most important from a SD perspective and they function extremely well in both daylight and dark conditions.

What's the width of the HD front? IIRC it's pretty wide; depending on the rear you use, it may or may not be a good fit. I pretty strongly doubt it'd work well with the .140" notch on the rear sights of my P99 and P99c, for example.
