    I just got out the gun that I'm giving my dad tomorrow, and the rear sight blade (the thin insert with the white outline) seems a little loose. Is this natural? What should/can I do to fix it? Thanks in advance!!!

    One drop of thread tightener should do the trick. Sight will still be easy to adjust.

    Matt, come on now, WHICH GUN!?

    :)

    Basic crazy glue would be a start.

    If it's a Ruger, the best long-term fix is to swap the rear sight body. Bowen has their "Target" and "Rough Country" replacements that have a good rep.

    I haven't yet found anybody with a Tritium rear sight for the basic Ruger rear sight as used by practically all their wheelguns.
