    I recently bought a used G23 with some TFO sights on them. I noticed on the front sight, that the little fiber-optic/tritium tube is alittle loose. I can move it alittle with my finger. The front sight housing is on tight, but the tube is loose. Is this normal for these sights? Thanks!

    depends on how old they are. Use superglue or call Truglo to swap them out.

    I emailed Truglo. Where/how would you put the superglue? Would you remove the fiberoptic tube first?

    yes I had this problem with TFO before in my glocks 23 and 27 , you need a short screw and use glue after this, I never had no more problems .

    Question....Where and what do you glue. Does the vial have to be removed? Hopefully truglo emails me back today with good news.

    I would send them back, they have a 12 year warranty, tell them you want them replaced, thats why they have a warranty. You can tell how well a sight is made by how long they warrenty them. Thats just my opionion, I would not glue anything, but to each his own...Its a decsion you will have to make for yourself..........G30
