This is from the PPS M1 manual....I assume the PPS M2 is the same.

6.3. Sight Adjustment
WINDAGE
The rear sight is adjustable for windage only. To adjust, move the rear sight in the direction you wish the group to move on the target. For example, if the group should move to the right, move the rear sight to the right. Use a brass or plastic drift or punch to prevent marring the rear sight. If the rear sight has a set screw, loosen the set screw prior to moving the rear sight. Tighten the set screw after the sight has been adjusted to the desired position.

What that means is, you need to use a hammer and a punch/drift to actually 'knock' the sight to the left or right.

Yep....this is from the M2 manual.

WINDAGE:
Windage adjustments are made by drifting the steel rear sight from side to side with the rear sight adjustment tool.:eek:. To adjust, move the rear sight in the direction you wish the group to move on the target. For example: if the group should move to the right, move the rear sight to the right.

The rear sight adjustment tool they're referring to is simply a hammer and a punch.....I guess that would be tools.

According to the M2 manual -


WINDAGE:
Windage adjustments are made by drifting the steel rear sight
from side to side with the rear sight adjustment tool. To adjust,
move the rear sight in the direction you wish the group to move
on the target. For example: if the group should move to the right,
move the rear sight to the right.

Its obvious, the person that wrote the manual doesn't own a PPS M2 and or has never even seen one.

In addition, I'm pretty sure that there's a lot of 'cutting and pasting' going on when it comes to producing a manual for a new gun.

The tool referred to in the M2 manual is non-existent....at least, I've never seen one enclosed/provided with a PPS M1 or M2. They should have stuck with the wording in previous manuals.....must have been a new guy. :D

So, your options are to use a hammer and punch or a sight pusher. But its quite rare that a new pistol needs any sight/windage adjustment.

I didn't even catch that...."the rear sight adjustment tool"

I'm sure they really meant to say "a rear sight adjustment tool". One little word makes all the difference. I've never had to adjust my PPS sight, but I have on some other guns.

I work for a major aerospace OEM and our manuals are copy and paste so I would expect it to be the same for the firearms industry.

I've never had much luck with the universal sight pushers that I've tried so I just use a hammer and punch with a padded vise. That method has always worked for me.

The groups I was getting at 10 yards were more than acceptable and did not indicate the need for any sight adjustment. When I read about the sight tool, I wanted to know where I could find one.

Thanks.
