    1911 front sight

    The NEW front sight is moving in its new dovetail. It is drilled with a coresponding divot on the slide.
    Neither are threaded. I cant use a set screw as there are no threads. I cant use a roll pin as it a blind hole and could never be removed.

    Perhaps this is a locator? Can I just blue locktight the dovetail and center the sight?

    If you don't want to get another front sight, you have two other options:

    - rough up the bottom of the dovetail, and/or the bottom of the sight, by tapping with a center punch to make "dimples." That should take up the slack.

    - Use a brass ball peen hammer to gently tap down the top front and back edges of the dovetail, to press against the sight.

    Mr. Milk toasts advice is right-on. Use red lock-tite instead of the blue, as it is even stronger in its bonding ability.
