Loose front sight?
 
I recently had Trijicon night sights put on my G22 and today I went to the range and put about 150 rounds through it. When I got home and took the barrel off to clean it, I noticed that the front sight had come loose, but I don't have a tool small enough to tighten the bolt.
I could bring it back in but Id rather save myself the drive.
What's the best way to fix this?
Any advice would be much appreciated.

I would run a sfc /scannow to check for any corrupt system files followed by a chkdsk.

Sounds like either a bad power supply, or maybe there's a screw loose in the motherboard, causing it to short out.

Edit: Now that the fun is out of the way (read the forum description). I would take it back to the place that installed it. If you don't want to do that, you can get a nutdriver, but I can't remember the size. The problem is, all nut drivers, the wall of the driver is to thick to let it get completely around the screw. Some folks have used a grinder or dremel, to thin the wall out so it can get clearance and can tighten it.

Or, order a Glock Front Sight tool from Lonewolf, and pick up some blue loctite at the hardware store. Use the Front sight tool to remove the screw, and dab some loctite on the threads. Then tighten it back up.

Switch to a more reliable O.S. such as HK, CZ, or even Sig.

how often do you defrag? i would try that. Then go into msconfig and remove some of those worthless start up programs. Also, check out services.msc and remove a bunch of worthless services.

let us know if you need more help. hahaha

Thats pretty good advice..

I'm thinking someone needs to petition Eric to change the name of this forum. It obviously is beyond people's attention span to read the forum description.

Of course, its pretty fun mocking them to...lol

That would be a waste of time ... everyone knows that you don't need to clean a Glock. :supergrin:

Damn, I thought you were supposed to put them in the dishwasher. :tongueout:

Mak Maven 06-06-2009 10:17

Nah, dishwasher is for poaching salmon.
