Installing HD sights and some problems. The sight came with a hex-head nut, more like a Glock sight screw, rather than an actual screw like the PPS stock sight. And the nut can't be clinched up right enough to hold the front sight in place. The sight nests in place, but the nut simply won't hold it in place.

Seems like a very fine shim would help.

Is this typical for the HD sights?


Edit: installed the FS this morning, no problems. No idea what was going on last night... :)

It's exactly the same screw as a Glock FS screw, which is why the magnetic screwdriver for Glock FS's is the recommended tool to install these ;)

I have HD’s on my PPS m1. Just put them on a month ago. The Glock front sight took is a perfect match!! Use a bit of a blue locktite and all will be good to go! It’s one of the easier installs of HD’s I’ve done. It’ll work!!

Rear sight seated, ready to head to the range and check the zero!



This was easy, still can't figure out why I was having problems last night. Sheesh...




I was watching some of the videos on YT, amazing to watch people using punches on the sights. I've done one or five of those myself, but once you get a sight press there's no going back...

I just put the Trijicon standard night sights on my new M2 RMSC. First time at the range, one if the white dots fell off my factory rear sight which I have read is unfortunately common. Was gonna put night sights on anyway.....
Install went fine.

Just installed two sets (P99 AS and PPQ .45) and it all went quickly and smoothly.

Lost one of the dots in my rear sight as well, so good thing I was changing out the sights anyway.

Shot my PPS M1 today for the 2nd time with my new Trijicon HD’s installed. Man I’m shooting low!! Left to right seems good but I’m shooting anout 3/4 inches low with these sights. I’ve got the HD’s on many Glocks, HK’s, Smith’s etc and no issues. But on this PPS it’s shooting low. Anyone else find this result while using these sights on the PPS (M1)?? Thanks for any help or advice.

PPS M2 Sight Heights and Choices ..... Difficult ?

EDIT - 11.07.2019.
I answered my own question from 11.06.2019 by reading the 'Owners Manual' for my Walther PPS-M2 (duh!)
Elevation adjustment for the firearm IS remedied by changes made to height of the Front Sight. Walther makes (1-5) front sights for the firearm that are secured by a flat head screw in side the slide. When adjusting the front sight, you'll need to move it in the opposite direction of your desired point of impact. Hitting high; lower the front sight. Hitting low; raise the front sight.
...................................................................................................................................................................................

Glock pistols make sight installs easy. The front sight is a standard height, and the rear sight is one of four heights. Sight specs by firearm are provided by Glock in the 'Glock PARTS ORDER Form (online).
Rear sight heights seem to follow the caliber of firearm (ie: 9mm, .40, 45, 10mm, etc) Only the .357 Glocks are identified as having (2) different rear sight heights. The front sight is standardized on ALL models; perhaps precluding the mini-glock .380 and 9mm.

(see EDIT above) What is the issue with Walther; especially with growing sales of the PPS-MS2 branded firearms ??
Surely the 9mm and the .40 cal PPS-M2's have factory specific height specifications for both the front and/or rear sight; don't they ....?

Most aftermarket sights also have exact specifications for each sight. Mixing and matching various sights for any one firearm seems like a bumpy road to have to travel.

I just installed some Trigicon HDs in my Classic PPS a week or so ago. I found thE installation pretty easy. I'm a little concerned that the rear sight was not a press in sight but retained by a set screw. I put blue Loctite in the dovetail and on the set screw so hopefully that will keep it in place for years to come.

I did the exact same as you and it’s held just fine for the past couple years.
