OK, mostly a venting post. Gave my pet 1911 to a local "gunsmith" to install new sights. Selected a STI tactical adjustable rear sight, and left the front sight choice to the alleged "gunsmith", telling him I wanted a black on black sight picture. OK, the rear sight is good, he had to cut a larger dovetail, and it seems fine, except he scratched the sight installing it. The front sight, though........ He claims no one had one the right height, so he made one....... also claims that he silver soldered it in place as well as staking it. Well, after about 200 rounds, the front sight is loose. Loose, loose, loose. Loose like a kid's tooth about to come out. I will not go back to that "gunsmith", so I guess I will learn how to stake a 1911 front sight myself. Does no one take pride in their work anymore?
