I have been to the range and seems my P99 is shooting really low at 10 yards and still bit low at 20. Can anyone suggest which front sight I should try that came with my gun to correct this.

That's odd. If you're low at 10 yd, you should be even lower at 20 I'd think.

In general, if the gun is shooting low, either lower the front sight, or raise the rear.

Correct on the lowering the front sight...if you have a new P99 replace the sight with a lower one...if you don't have extra sights you will need to contact WaltherAmerica.

What caliber and weight bullet are you using? You problem is no doubt a sight picture but higher velocity, lighter weight bullets will often shoot lower than heavier weight bullets.

Early model P99s liked heavier bullets better than the later models....

I just changed the front sight...does anyone put blue loctite on the set screw? do they have a habit of coming loose and falling out

My screws have never come out once U put them all the way in. And, I have swopped them many times between all my 99s.

My P99 and P99c work fine with the #4, but my SW99 shot low - so I put the #3 on it - I think that is the lowest one. It fixed it for me.

Standard practice is to use "Blue" Loctite on all sight screw applications [ excluding adjustable sight screws ] - this includes scope mounts etc.

You might get by without -- but why take the risk ?? It is very easy to break the seal of the Blue version when you need to make a change.
