I have looked in the FAQ threads and did the search thing but still came away uncertain as to which brand of night sights to go with. I like the idea of installing them myself without the sight press tool. Having stated that, I read where the POA/POI has been a mixed bag of good and bad reviews. I would really like to see some current (2018-2019) reviews on night sights that would include long term use. Thanks

Get the trijicons I had them on my older ppq m2 that I sold ( big mistake) they’re without a doubt the best. I just installed the tfx pro on my new ppq m2 and it shoots low. With the trijicon hd it will be hard to miss the target they’re so good

I've had Meprolights on my PPQ M1 for several years. They were easy to install and adjust and give a good sight picture. I haven't had any problems with them at all.

I've got Trijicon HD's on several Glocks. That would also be an excellent choice.

Meps require no sight pusher. BUT may change your POI/POA. I use them to correct my poor technique i.e., shot anticipation/flinch raised my tendicy to shoot low/left.

I suspect your mileage will vary some regardless of brand. You're just going to have to buy and try. Good luck.

I have Trijicon HD on my PPQ and XS Big Dot's on my P99's. I'm going to slowly replace the Big Dot's when finances allow.

PPQmOne.....ha.....this isn't helping is it? Just more of the same. You gotta bite the bullet and make a choice...just buy something and see if it meets your needs.

I have Dawson Precision fixed charger sight set with tritium front and rear on my PPQ. They are great!


Hint: View the videos in the resource center (bottom left of home page) before you buy. Also, if you decide to install yourself, get some Loctite from them. They use to install the sights for you for a small fee. Contact them to see if that option is still offered. Here is a PPQ page...

You can get Trijicon's on Amazon for 129 (Prime with free shipping).



I would just get them and see if you like them. If not send them back and get the Dawson's.



I have both on different pistols and both work just fine.

The Dawsons are my choice as well. Excellent sights and a flexible bunch to work with. With Dawsons, you can have it you way in regards to sight height, width, ... If you are picky about how you want your sights set up, Dawsons might be for you.

My second choice are the TFX Pros. They are excellent sights for use on a defensive handgun in any light conditions. Mine have worked fine with POI/POA but some people report issues with that. Once again, the ones I've used have been fine.

Meps work fine, TFX work fine, Trij HD XRs.


Only downside of HDs, is non-XR front sight pretty wide, so hard to be super accurate at longer distances AND most of all, the rear sight is ridiculously sharp.

Once again I am going to be in the minority, but I really like my factory installed XS F8 sights on my PPQ M2. Wouldn’t change them for any others.

:eek: Thanks? I get the point:D; just buy and try. I really like the "connect the dots (diamonds)" of the Speed Sights, no gap in the sight picture but the Trijicon HDs get really good reviews across all gun brands. Both are easy install. Time to make a decision. Thank you to those that replied. I guess it is better to have choices, right?:)

Well, in a turn of events, I went budget and ordered the 18801 Meprolight sights for $59.74 shipped. I will review them once I get them installed and go to the range.:D

Let us know how it goes with the Meps.

Questions about night sights are amongst the most commonly asked questions on this forum. Building a body of knowledge on the topic is a good thing.

Trijicons

To me the HD trijicons have a lot of space via the rear sight picture , plus the rear sight is easily adjusted for windage .

hello fellow members .. my first day on this sight and I am impressed with most of the comments of shared knowledge.Thankyou for sharing ahead of time , my FIRST Walther arrived yesterday PPQ Q4 m2 Tac and I am learning about it..but am distressed that there seems to be no aftermarket high grade rear replacement sights for this instrument..I called Walther and that was the bottom line from their adviser.Best choice is an optical red dot if not satisfied.I got that.. but it seems unusual that since this gun has been out for a while ..nothing available for the rear?? appreciate some experience here!!!
