SR22 white dot on rear sight disappeared

I was shooting my SR22 pistol the other day and one of the white dots on the rear sight disappeared. Anyone else have this issue? Sent a message to Ruger CS, just waiting to hear back from them.

Pretty easy fix if you need them. Clean the holes with alcohol & a Q-tip & drop some white fingernail polish it the depression. You can also get some special sight paint that will glow in the dark.

Personally, I don't use the rear sites much & on my SR22p I turned the rear sight around for all black. It's designed like that.
I have all black rear on my 1911 with a fiber-optic front sight.
For me, I shoot better just concentrating on the front sight.

X2 on the glow in the dark sight paint it's pretty cool stuff. I actually get a faster sight picture with color on the front and plain black rear, color in the window....

i appropriated a bottle of white out from my wifes office, its a quick fix for a black front sight. i use dayglow green fishing lure paint for a more permanent fix. I leave the back sights alone.

For dots , Bic White Out Correction PEN. Shake it well , squeeze the middle and press the ball point down and lift up.....with a little practice you can plant nice round flat white dots.
If the sight has a depression for the dot it's easy to fill it with the pens flat white lacquer .
Beats a tiny brush seven ways to Sunday.

One of the white dots came out on my 9E. I took a needle and popped out the other. I find that I like it better this way because I don't focus on the rear sight May not look great, but I'm happy with it.
