    I have a High Standard 9 shot .22 pistol. The rear sight fits into a dovetail in the frame. On mine the pressed fit is not secure & the sight will shift to the right slightly during firing. Is there an easy fix for this? The frame & sight are non-magnetic so I assume they are some grade of aluminum & I was a little reluctant to just center punch some dimples in the frame. Thanks in advance, John

    The 'easy' fix is one of the LocTites, or clear (black?) nail-polish.

    They'll stick and you can still drift the sight out if you need to.

    I lost a globe sight on a Black Powder match-rifle and stuck it back on (rather permanently) with 'Black Max' from Brownells.

    John, a couple of soltions come to mind.

    Pick up some brass shim stock at a hobby shop and cut a shim to place under the sight. You may need to make a longer shim and trim the excess after it is installed. Shim stock comes in .001", .002", .003" etc. thicknesses.

    You could remove the sight and upset some metal in the bottom of the dovetail with a small center punch. That is what a gunsmith would do.
