Where can I find a set of fiber optic sights? Walther America lists them on their site (front sight only) but they are on back order until the middle of next month. I'd like to get them a bit sooner than that...
Thanks in advance...

P99Freak,
You're only ignorant if you never ask the question you don't know the answer to.

I find fiber optic sights to be superior to standard white-dot sights in all lighted areas. Fiber optic tubes collect light and their ends appear fairly bright - definitely more contrast than the standard white dots.

In the dark though, they are just like any other standard sight - invisible.

I personally prefer the tritium night sights. I haven't gotten them on my P99 yet, but they came factory installed on my 3" 1911 .45. They are great because they work very well in the day, and they are superior to anything else at night. I feel that fiber optic sights still beat out tritium sights during the day, but the ability to shoot straight in the dark is a much more valuable benefit.

Thanks Ni3Frontier

I thought they might be a good compromise between a day sight and a night sight. But I guess i better get night sights if i ever upgrade and replace the metal ones.

There's no cover for the set screw... just use a small screwdriver and go. I think one click (1/4 turn) is equivalent to 1/16 of an inch at 25m.
