Awaiting Arrival.

Mine are all ordered up. Now the waiting. Installation looks simple enough. Guess we'll see where it goes.

I've always had good luck with Trijicon in the past and they certainly have given me no reason to change my opinion on my PPQ. Installation was a snap and they work every bit as well as I would expect from Trijicon.

Here is the video of my installation;

Here is the video of my review;

And for the front site screw that can be such a bugger I found this little gem that's less than $10. ; http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003E0OWKW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

My M2 was easy and straight forward, rear sight slid right out, aligned the slot in the plunger and all was golden.

Forgive me for asking an ignorant question, but what is Loctite 242 and what is its purpose?

Is it some sort of glue or is it a polymer sealant of some kind? Is it there to prevent fouling or is it there to prevent creep on the sight?

Also, has anyone tried installing Trijicon HDs? Same exact procedure?

Thanks!

Loctite 242 is a mild adhesive that will help prevent movement of the threads on the front site, simple a threadlocker. 242 is NOT a permanent adhesive as you can 'break' the lock with a little heat and force. It just helps ensure that the front post stays true and eliminates slop and/or loosening over time.

Loo title is a brand of thread sealant that will keep threaded fasteners from loosening. It comes in different grades that range from light thread locking to permanent thread locking.

The blue works fine on my PPQ. So, don't see the need to hassle with the red.

They make many different formulas. The green and red are typically the "retaining" variety that require heat or excessive force to unscrew the two components. The 242 blue is best for most of the firearm applications. For smaller fasteners, 4x40 and smaller the purple 222 is better so you don't damage the fastener when you try and remove it.

Have you had any experience with 243? Supposedly it's the same as 242 but more oil resistant (which would seem better for a firearm).

243 should be a great choice.
