PPK/S guy,

seeing as how the front sight on a PPK is fixed, and the rear is dovetailed, I think it'd be near impossible to find standard night sights for it.

Over at "cylinder and slide's" website, there was a custom job that added much larger sights, I don't see why you couldn't do that, though it'd be expensive.

The sights that C&S uses, if memory serves, are modified versions of the front sight that fits a Beretta. I think the front sight has to be narrowed to match the profile of the slide rib. The rear is a Novak.

They are rounded to keep snagging to a minimum but the back of the front sight is still pretty sharp. It scrapes a small amount of leather out of my Galco USA holster almost every time I draw it.

Couldn't I just get some glow in the dark paint and take a small paintbrush and paint the dots? Would that work?

P.S. Hey Tom I've been on rimfirecentral.com sorry I hadn't got back to you. But now I'll even my time spent on here and RFC.com

That's alright, I was at RFC for day or so too.

The glow-in-the-dark paint would probably have a problem with illumination. More than likely you have to hold it under a lamp or other bright light to "charge" the paint. And even then it will just last a little while, not good if it's been in your nightstand drawer for a while.

There is actually radiation transmitted from the tritium night-sights (a small amount), that's it's power source and why it lasts a lot longer transmitting a constant glow.

I think your trying to make a PPK what it isn't. It is a small SD pistol for close range.At close range you don't need night sites.
Its been doing a fine job of SD for many years with out night sites. lazers ot those dumb rails and flashlights It is not a assault pocket pistol. Sorry but people have been getting shot for well over a 100 years with out all this add on.
Practice and then practice somemore with you weapon and it will serve you when you need.

If I can't put night sights on it, can I get a laser on it, somewhere around the trigger guard? Or Crimson Laser Grips?

I was just thinking when did you get a real PPK/S List I heard you had a TOY co2 pistol. A lazer slows you down you will actualy be looking for dot and moving it around. A sight is slighty faster. But I just talking to the wall Go play with your air soft.

That made me laugh so hard I almost pissed myself.
Remind me never to get locked in a room with you two.

My girlfriend's oldest son and a friend of his were playing with an air rifle and the friend now has a BB permanently embedded in the palm of his hand. The doc said it would be too much trouble to get it out.

That was 15 years ago.
