    The white dots are gone, has this happened to anybody else? There are 2 very very slight indentations and there was a dab of white paint on each. Both bits of paint are now gone, and the indentations aren't even straight across, one is higher than the other.

    Mine are MIA on my 9mm also. i don't really care as they were kind of distracting to me. This makes me focus on the front site more. If it bothered me, I would just repaint 'em with a tiny brush.

    If you want to replace them, use white nail polish. It is a very high quality lacquer that dries hard and will stay put. I use a fine wire to put a small drop, or drops, in the hole. Don't forget to first clean the sight and holes thoroughly with lacquer thinner (polish remover).

    ok thanks. I might go to a gunsmith and have actual holes put into the rear sight. It looks like the indentations were made by shooting a BB from long range with a Daisy Lever action rifle at the sight.
