If you've ever lost a front sight or almost lost one you'd know why a drop of blue loctite is a wise idea...:D

It won't hurt anything and is an added measure of insurance.

Curious if the loctite is necessary, I've seen other installs and they didn't mention it.

It's necessary. I didn't have it on mine and it came loose after 50 rounds. I am lucky it didn't fall off or it would have been gone.

Refer to post #56, and the picture from the manual. Even Walther advises to use loctite on the threads of the front sight. I've read many post from guys that didn't use any loctite and then began whining about their front sight becoming lose or falling off.

It's elementary my friend......cheap insurance and alleviates the whining later on. ;)

Gordy, you got the right stuff (242). Now just remember, 'a little dab'll do ya'. Just squeeze out a tiny drop on the work bench (or what ever) dip a toothpick in there and use the toothpick to apply a tiny bit to the threads.

I will also be replacing my beretta grips with hogue grips so I may need 2 tiny drops. Might as well put some on those screws. Post some pictures later today once I get both back together. Patiently cleaning and detailing both of them for 'surgery.'

As I realize the title is for the factory night sights I'll go ahead and create a thread for the Trijicons. The install is pretty much the reverse of removing the factory plastic ones off.

This thread has been quite helpful.

I'm still curious though if you guys think the soon-to-be-released Trijicon HD sights for the PPS will work on the PPQ, as I would prefer a fixed rear sight. Normally I would assume that if any PPS sights will work on the PPQ then they all should. HOWEVER, I'd hate to order a set and find out the hard way they won't work.

ppq rear sight plunger assembly

I was taking off the rear sights to see how easy it was. I found out how easy it was to watch the plunger and spring go flying. Can some one give me a link so I can order new ones please?

Go get one of those magnets on a stick at Home Depot and go on a snipe hunt. Those little boogers gotta be around there somewhere. But if you need a replacement spring and plunger, then there are a few sources to try. 1) Walther Customer Service. 2) Earls Repair Service. 3) Smith & Wesson Customer Service, you'll need to ask for parts for a SW99. 4) Magnum Research, you'll need to ask for parts for an MR9.

Thank you for the site tip. As far as finding it went boing in my garage so it is in never never land:mad: I thought what the heck and took one last look and I was surprised I found it

These sights are a pain remove the old sight by pushing down the adjusting screw and push to left:) be careful of spring under adjusting screw. Then lay gun on right side down a towel so that you do not scratch your gun, kind of line up the sights in the slot an use a plastic hammer or brass with a cloth on it and pound it in, its a pain in the but. I lined up the arrow on the sight with the center line on slide and sights were still right on target. Good luck Edward

Time to get my sight pusher out again.I'm planning on putting the PPS Trijicon HD sights on my P99c AS.....while I like the high profile of the trijis I presently have on the weapon, I just don't totally trust that screw on a carry weapon.

A quality sight pusher makes installation a snap!
