I have a Walther PPQM2 and I’m looking for sights that will fit into my alien gear shapeshift holster. Any suggestions?
I think Trijicon Night Sights are the best option here.
These are tritium, not fiber optic, with the same front sight size as original 3 dot, so will fit for your holster for sure.
Perhaps fiber optic is better for sight alignment but tritium won’t break during holstering.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, replace front sight only, keeping original rear one.
Trijicon makes great sights and I have used them for years. But, You might want to go to a shop and see what is available and what will work with your holster.
XS is making sights for the PPQ’s. I have them on my .45
I’ll double down on XS and Trijicon. You might also want to contact Alien Gear and discuss your issue with them, most likely they will have some good recommendations for you.
Double checking is a great idea. Alien Gear has a great support, they will answer all questions for sure.
I did measurements and here you have some results:
My original PPQ front sight:
- blade width : 0.13"
- blade height: 0.18"
Here we have dimensions of Trijicon:
I’m using Alien Gear Holster and what I’ve noticed:
- width doesn’t matter
- height - there is about 1/16" free space between holster edge and my front sight.
Hopefully this will help…
