dab of JB weld on the sight inside the slide... just a tiny tiny bit.

Other than replacing the sight, i think your looking at adhesive's???? looks like its just a compression fit from the looks of my glocks front sight.

No idea, bought dirt cheap of gb. Has a ton of holster wear on the top of the slide and frame, but none on the internals. The barrel where and slide dimples didn't even start to show until I put 1k through it.

My 27 has 9k through it since I got night sights, and it's gtg.

Depends on what sights you have. If you have the front sight that is staked on, or the one that is screwed on. Remove the slide and barrel and look at the underside where the front sight comes through the slide. if you see a 3/16 nut there, then all you probably need to do is loosen it, put on some more loc-tite and tighten it back up. If it's the staked on one, I would recommend getting a set of Trijicon or other sights that use the screw to secure the front sight.

The Glock sights that are staked have been known to loosen up over time. My last Glock I bought last month with standard sights were screwed on, so I think Glock may have abandoned the staked on sights now.

Bob,

Bring it by sometime, I'm a Glock certified Armorer, and I have all of the tools to either fix it right, or replace..

So what was it? Loose screw, more loctite? Or jam in a new stake?

Old stake just wasn't set in all the way

Actually, you had the B model - "Bear" - with a removable front sight. Yeah. Hurts less when the bear.... nevermind. :)

I just used that line the other day when my co-worker told me he carried a .380 for bear!

A .380 for bear? What, is he nuts? I guess the .380 is to shoot HIMSELF so as to avoid the pain of the bear attack? Even then, the .380 might be marginal. :chris:
