    My g26 trijicon front sight has come off. I stuck it back on but it can be taken off easily. Should I glue it back on? With what?

    Get the glock front sight tool and the red loctite. It will never come off again :)
    YouTube has some good "how to" videos on this

    The front sight doesn't have a nut or anything to hold it in place. Is it suppose to?

    There isn't a screw and I can't find a hole where a screw would go into. It has a little oblong nub on the bottom of the sight that fits into the slide no holes for screws or any kind of threads.

  8. Are you sure these are Trijicon sights?

    I'd send the slide to Trijicon. They are good folks to deal with and they would make it work or replace it.

    If it's actually a Trijicon, you should be able to make out the name, at least on the rear sight, maybe with a little magnification. It sounds like a Glock staked sight, however.
    Good luck with it, whatever it is.

    Im wondering if it is suppose to have a screw and the head broke off. Does somebody have a picture with the screw removed? I will try to get a picture when I get home.

    bjhubb,
    You'd be able to tell. The bottom of the sight that you can see through the hole in the slide will have a threaded hole that you would then screw the front sight screw into.

    After looking at Trijicon's website it looks like the screw broke off inside the sight. I guess I will give Trijicon a call. I am not the original owner and don't know the age of the sights, will this matter?

    Yes, that's what it looks like to me too.

    The date code is on the side of the sights unless it wore off. You should be able to take some pliers and remove the screw and just get another one, unless the previous owner glued it on, which i smost likely what happened.

    Just tried to get the threads out with some needle nose pliers, but it is in there pretty good and I can't get a good hold on it.

    How old is the gun?
    The screw may have been broken off by over-torquing it. The size is very small and you have to be careful when tightening.
    I would call them first and tell them the problem. They may send you a new one at reduced price or be able to get the old one out. Their cost would probably be less to just send you a new one.

    The gun is about 10yrs old according to the s#, but the sights where added later. The previous owner provided the packaging that they came in.
