Ruger Standard rear sight slipping
I have a 1969 Ruger Standard semi auto 22 in like new condition. After being kept clean and dry in storage for 35+ years, I have started shooting it again.
The rear sight, after 60-70 rounds are fired has started to creep to the left, causing the point of impact to move left as well. It is a fixed sight, inserted into a dovetail.
Upon first discovering this, I tapped it back in place but it simply moves again with more shooting.
FYI - Ruger will recondition for $35 plus parts. But with $73 to ship to them (I am in a 'remote' area) and a $30 return fee, it isn't worth it.
Any suggested fixes with any kind of Loctite or other? Best fro a gunsmith to do it?
