Trijicon HD front sight issue

Installing HD sights and some problems. The sight came with a hex-head nut, more like a Glock sight screw, rather than an actual screw like the PPS stock sight. And the nut can't be clinched up right enough to hold the front sight in place. The sight nests in place, but the nut simply won't hold it in place.

Seems like a very fine shim would help.

Is this typical for the HD sights?


Edit: installed the FS this morning, no problems. No idea what was going on last night...

It's exactly the same screw as a Glock FS screw, which is why the magnetic screwdriver for Glock FS's is the recommended tool to install these

Fortunately I had a Glock tool on hand! Never have too many tools! 🛠️

Don't forget the blue loctite 😉

I have HD’s on my PPS m1. Just put them on a month ago. The Glock front sight took is a perfect match!! Use a bit of a blue locktite and all will be good to go! It’s one of the easier installs of HD’s I’ve done. It’ll work!!

Rear sight seated, ready to head to the range and check the zero!



This was easy, still can't figure out why I was having problems last night. Sheesh...




I was watching some of the videos on YT, amazing to watch people using punches on the sights. I've done one or five of those myself, but once you get a sight press there's no going back...

I just put the Trijicon standard night sights on my new M2 RMSC. First time at the range, one if the white dots fell off my factory rear sight which I have read is unfortunately common. Was gonna put night sights on anyway.....
Install went fine.

Just installed two sets (P99 AS and PPQ .45) and it all went quickly and smoothly.

Lost one of the dots in my rear sight as well, so good thing I was changing out the sights anyway.

Shot my PPS M1 today for the 2nd time with my new Trijicon HD’s installed. Man I’m shooting low!! Left to right seems good but I’m shooting anout 3/4 inches low with these sights. I’ve got the HD’s on many Glocks, HK’s, Smith’s etc and no issues. But on this PPS it’s shooting low. Anyone else find this result while using these sights on the PPS (M1)?? Thanks for any help or advice.
