Does anyone know the size of the set screw that holds the front sight?

The screw fell out during the last time I cleaned it and now I can't find it and have no front sight. My fault for never tightening the screw during cleanings. Lesson learned.

I don't remember the front sight on a SA 1911 Loaded as having a set screw. But, if yours had one, just write SA and tell them to send you a replacement as it was definitely defective.

And then put some Loktite on it.

You're right, it wasn't a set screw, it's a roll pin.

I called SA today and they said that a new roll pin is in the mail. They also said to put some loctite on the new pin and it should be ok.

+10000 to SA customer service:thumbsup:
