      Question Mark iii hunter sights

      Has anyone had a problem with their front sight getting loose after only 10 to 20 rounds fired ?
      Also, no matter where I move the rear sight, I can't get the POI to center on the target. Several people have tried and it still hits too far left.
      Any thoughts ?

      I have a MK III Hunter. Love the gun; hate the sights. I replaced the front sight with a black, square post. I replaced the V rear with a VQ Bomar like rear. I loctited both securely in place and haven’t had any problems with them. I also did a few other things like replacing the sear with a VQ sear, replaced the hammer with a VQ MK II hammer and bushing, replaced the trigger with a Marvel trigger and drilled and tapped the mag release and added a 1911 mag release extension. No more mag safety and a long enough mag release that I can reach it without shifting my hand.

      If you like the sights, consider Loctite. I like the red stuff for sights.

      No, mine stays put, and the bullets hit right where I aim. It took a period of adjustment (me, not the sights) but now I love the sights on my Mark III Hunter.

      Mark iii hunter

      Thanks to everyone for the replies. I contacted Ruger today and their reply was yeah they come loose. Their suggestion was also to use red locktite. As far as the reason it shoots to the left, I discovered that the rear site is loose in the dovetail slot.
      Bottom line: Use lock tite on everything on the Mark III.

      I guess it is something I can look forward to experiencing.
