DP front sight install


Recommended Posts

Better to peen so it's tight, IMO. I don't trust the glue.

I am sorry... What do you mean by "peen"?

Dimple the sight so it fits nice and tight. I've never found it necessary, though. My dovetail sights all fit very tightly except for my STI, which has a roll pin holding it in (from the factory).

Loctite isn't really meant to help an interference fit, except for the Loctite designed for sleeves.

What the correct loctite to use?

On the front dovetail id use a higher temp one due to the heat at muzzle. I use a high temp red that I have a stockpile of from when I was a tech working on trucks. Rear sights I use a green that is 640? I believe. Thing is on my sti when I installed my dawsons I did it where they were snug. I don't think they will go anywhere.
