As bad as I hate to say it, nope, you're not on the right track. The Speed Sight front sight is much taller and a lot wider than the factory or aftermarket front sights. Being as how the front is taller and wider means you need a rear sight that's also taller with a wider notch......ain't no animals like that around.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see Speed Sights developed for the PPQ, I just don't think it's gonna happen. I sent the guy a set of polymer sights last year so he could take measurements, etc. Never heard back from him.

I actually run an AmeriGlo front sight (again for a Glock) and have developed a way to affix it to the slide so it doesn't come lose. I DO use a little JB Weld, but I'm NOT epoxying the sight to the slide...just modifying the sight to match up with the slot in the slide. For rears, I use a Meprolight or a Trijicon.....this combo changes the sight picture to a target shooters picture, rather than the standard combat sight picture. Works for me!!!!!

Sounds good. I'll send an email as well, just to let them know there is a demand for the PPQ.

PPQ sights

When it comes to front fiber optic sights for my M1 and M2 5" slide, I go with Daswon. Either as a set or a front sight only. The F.O. is great and the different heights for the front sight lets me dial in the perfect sight group for me. I have found that even with comperable sights on a VP9, the PPQ M! is nearly twice as accurate (group[ing). Only my HK Tacs and Experts are more accurate. Still working on the HK's POI but they are great machines. BTW, my LGS put a CCP in my hand and I am impressed, so I'll get one and run it against my pocket carry PM9.

I love the PPQ 45. That's a different model than the M2, which some people don't know. I have no slide/barrel scraping. Any questions let me know.

Nino the M2 refers to the mag release type. The Classic or M1 is a paddle release and the M2 is a button.....you may consider your Q45 an M2.
