    I want to get new sights on my XD, but I'm too scared for the fact that it's a bitch to get off, and im scared that if I do finally get new sights on, they wont last

    Was it loctited on? Next time make sure you use the loctite, I don't put it in there for my health :o Call the shop monday and tell them what happened and we will take care of you, I won't be there next week but any of the guys will get you fixed up.

    Definitely before doing any rapid fire be generous with the loctite like the instructions show. The set screws are really only there to hold it in place long enough to verify windage.

    They should be going on the machine to be run this week, those were one of the few things left on the backorder list. We have been running at max capacity lately churning out OEM and big selling parts, unfortunately that means the guys in the back sometimes bump low volume parts. We did push them this week onto the priority list though since there are two backorders for them now.

    good stuff... I appreciate the update. I love my P99, but it certainly doesn't have the parts market like some of the other guns out there.
