I had been ignoring this problem for some time but this weekend my wife snuggled up to me and my PPQ rear sight kind of got her a little.

I was thinking about doing some very minor smoothing with a diamond file and following that with some aluminum black to touch up. I don't plan to remove any more material than the sharp edges themselves. Anything wrong with this plan?



I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. -Ecclesiastes 9:11

That was my thought, too. I assume the sorta sharp edges are desirable to make the sight picture clear and accurate. Quite a few of the sharp edges are actually at the 'funnel' at the muzzle end of the rear sight aperture. I dont think those are seen when sighting and don't need to be sharp at all.

I can't think of any edges or corners that need to be sharp and square on a rear sight other than the notch itself. (Discounting U-notch sights.) File away.
