Anyone know where I can get a replacement fiberoptic type? The OEM is tritium and has worked loose. I don't plan on using in low light. It has a vertical roll pin to help secure it, but the dovetail is loose. I punched the pin back in but it's loose again. Options?

1. Larger roll pin?
2. remove roll pin and punch the bottom of the sight until it's snug?
3. remove roll pin and use shim stock?
4. replace sight with bright/visible fiber-optic sight?


Also: I assume that to remove the sight completely I have to drive the roll pin down all the way through the slide, correct?
Any advice welcome.

Yes, drive the roll-pin down through the slide.
Apply Blue Lock-Tight to dovetail in the slide & sight.
Put it back together.
Re-install roll-pin.
Let set overnight for the LT to cure.

Thanks, I'll try that. It's quite loose... I can rattle around the sight with my finger. Should I try anything like center punching the bottom of the sight before loc-tite?
