To me it's disappointing that these white dots are falling off. It's a minor thing, but being a first time Walther owner, doesn't make me feel all that great about their QC.

Just saying.
True. But when actually USING the sights - and shooting - you do not notice it. You only notice it when looking at the gun to observe just the gun. Anyway, I did it and I was satisfied.

Good point and I'm sure you are right. Makes me wonder why Walther didn't paint the metal sites in the first place. If they painted them and put a clear coat finish over them, they would not have this problem going on. I'm sure it all comes down to saving a few pennies here and there.

Did the PPX ever have this issue?

[QUOTE=digitaleagle12;1050386]I'm pretty sure they are some kind of plastic insert as when mine fell out, the metal was totally bare. I never found the insert so I can't say for sure what kind of material it is. It seems they weren't pressed properly to the metal from their supplier. It didn't appear that there was any kind of adhesive when it fell out as the bare metal was totally clean.




Same thing happened to me except I lost both rear sights. I’m glad they have great customer service but on their end it’s a loose-loose situation.

The sights are failing causing free parts to leave with zero profit added to the bottom line but worse yet is word of mouth saying Walther pistol sights suck.

Just saying

My PPS M2 LE Phosphor Dots fell out at the range. I replaced them with Trijicon Orange HD 's.

I lost 1 of the rear dots within 150rds throuh my Creed when I got it. I just removed the other 2 with the tip of an exacto knife and filled in with white/green glow paint. Have had another 600-800 rounds through it and the glow paint has held up perfectly

Love it! What paint did you use and where did you buy it? Would love to do the same thing.

I don’t have it with me today. Elk season opening weekend lol. I don’t remember the name but almost every craft store carries glow in the dark paint. The bottle is very large (20+ oz). What I did was take a paper plate then got a super small paint brush and dabbed it where the dots are supposed to be. I did take my sights off to do it as well (for obvious reasons like not wanting a big glow spot in the slide lol) and applied the paint. I also found that for extremely fine details I used s toothpick.

You can go to your local Walmart in their arts and crafts section and buy some florescent paint for cheap. I bought some orange color to paint the front site of my Ruger LCPII. It was easy to do and has stayed on. Just buy some really small brushes.



Since Walther replaced my front site, I have not had a problem with the inserts falling out anymore.
