Question [FIXED] Loose rear sight on Sig 1911 Target

I probably should have had Sig deal with this when I first bought the gun a few years ago. The rear sights worked loose during my first range trip. I didnít notice it until I was home again and was cleaning it. I took the sights apart, cleaned everything up, then reassembled them using some blue Loctite on the set screw. It seemed good. Yesterday, I was shooting it again and the rear sight had come loose again.

What is the trick for getting these sights to stay put once and for all?

Sounds like either the dovetail in the slide it too big or the sight is too small. You can get a sharp punch and put a dimple or two on base of the sight to raise some metal up and then use some locktite in the dovetail and push sight back on. I would think factory would warranty that was well.

Just call sig and send it in. I have a sig 1911 that had some cycling issues like 4 years after I bought it new. I sent it to sig for free and they fixed it and replaced the rear sight I damaged at a class. I didn't even mention the sight to them, and they sent me back my 1911 better than ever. All free and very fast. I think like a week or less.

My sig target rear sight came loose as well.

I did exactly what you did- open the sight, blue loktite the set screw and had no issues.

Maybe you should pull the sight off completely, and degrease the screw and threads with alcohol and do it again- in case oil caused a problem with the loktite the first time.

Update:

I called Sig as suggested and they immediately emailed me a prepaid FedEx label so I could send in the slide. They replaced the rear sight and had the slide back to me in less than a week. No charges.

Thank you to those who suggested I just call them.
