    Need a little help. Have a friend who lost his front sight. I am not familiar with S & W. He was told it is gunsmith only repair. Sounds strange. Is this true? He just wants a plain ole simple front sight. He said it had a hole only to fit through. I suggested a pop rivet, but he didn't like that idea. What is the real story?

    Thanks,

    Rod

    If it's like a Glock and I think it is, it uses a tiny bolt or nut that holds it on. You need a special tool to tighten it up. Just send it back to S&W and they will fix it pronto.

    The Glock front sight with the screw works better than the original. It will need to be thinned down, pushed in, and make sure to locktite the screw. I have done this to perhaps 20 Sigmas.

    They seem to lose the front sight regularly.

    The Sigma front sight is not like a Glock. The sight snaps into
    place.You then drop a bit of epoxy in-between the legs and your good-to- go.

    Using the Glock front sight WITH THE SCREW to hold it in, as most after market sights use, works better than the original.

    I have done a number of them, the original is rather fragile and is easily lost.
