I purchased a PT 140 in August '07. I've only put 100 rounds through it. Took it out the other day and noticed the rear sight slides back and forth (probably about 4 or 5 millimeters). The website says the warranty does not cover sights. Should I have it repaired or replaced with different sights? Any suggestions on different sights?

Check the set screw to see if it just needs tightening.

I shot my PT145 so much that the front sight fell (unscrewed itself) off. Just use lock-tite on the threads and screw them back in...no problems after that.

+1 but if you are planning on upgrading to night sites i would do that before putting on locktight.

Thanks guys, I didn't realize those holes were set screws.

rwcreigh: have you changed to night sites? did you get them online?
