    Hello,

    I have a loose front sight on my 629, and i figure i should fix it. I assume that a bit of retaining compound should do the trick. What color do you guys recommend? I have red colored loctite retaining compound, but that is really strong stuff and iirc you need a torch to get that stuff apart. Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    FE1911
