Rear sight

I've got a PPQ and need to move the rear sight. I understand that they make two types of sights; one that moves via a screw, and the other that must be drifted or use a sight pusher.
Mine has a round hole going through it, indicating it might be the screwtype, but there is no screw.
When looking at it from the side, the sight does not sit completely flat on the bottom. You can see light between the sight and the bed it sits in.
Is this a screwtype that's missing the screw, or the drift type?
There is no plunger either.

Welcome to the Forums Capemike!

What you have is a drift adjustable rear sight.

If you are interested in learning the ins and outs of sight pushing I'd suggest you look over this thread:
https://www.waltherforums.com/forum/...tallation.html
I believe post 21 goes into great detail about drifting the sights.

Like Olsoul said, that's the push type, and the visible gap is normal for this kind of sight. And if you look closely, the hole is is a little springy roll pin, holding the sight in position.

It is called a toothed roll pin...

Thanks guys. I bought a nice sight pusher and all is fine. I may replace the stock sights with TFX Pro. If anyone can give me their impression on these, it would be appreciated.
Ps: I'm not new to shooting, just this site.
Guns owned: SW 99, Ruger Security Six, Ruger Speed Six, Glock 19, Springfield XD, Walther PPX, Walther PPQ, Sig 250, HK P30sk, CZ Scorpion, and a couple from way back that I've forgot about.
Thanks

After I pushed the sight just a tad, this is what I got from seven yards, four shots, off hand. Thanks for all the info. Never would have known about that pin under the rear sight.

So I bought some Speed Sights. Front green with tritium, rear white with tritium. I've only shot 20 rounds to play with the adjustment, but so far I like them. My last target is posted here; in my garage, 10 yards, free hand. No bench. I think they will do fine.
