2011 rear sight issue


Recommended Posts

So I’ve been shooting 19/2011’s for years and just recently noticed that on my limited gun the rear sight hinge pin is starting to walk itself out of the sight after a few stages. I haven’t dealt with this in any other gun and not sure if I can fix it or if I just need a new sight? 


Thanks for the help!

I haven't had to do it myself, but you might be able to solve that by peening the end of the pin/hinge(support the other side, then use a punch or chisel to swell the pin metal to hold it together).

Had that happen on one of my 1911s. Followed the peening advice. Turned out the pin had broken in two. Attempting to peen it was counterproductive. My $0.02 is if it wasn't walking the whole time and suddenly it is with no changes, verify nothing broke.
