My rear sight on my ar-15 has been giving me trouble lately...its a matech, ( like this one (http://www.kaneohegs.com/images/ma_tech_600m_rear_sight_left_top_view.jpg) ) and the recoil of the first shot flips it up every time - very annoying. I bought it used, and it seems to be in good mechanical condition, no obvious wear and the spring looks fine as well.

Has anyone encountered this issue or know of any quick fix for it? I figure the little bump that keeps it locked down must be worn, but I'm not sure what the best course of action to remedy this is.
