The rear adjustable sight has a blade in it that has broken. ANY thoughts on replacing it, notice NOT "ANY THOUGHTS" would be appreciated.

    Trot line anchor is the first thought I have.

    See my SIG Line............

    Actaully, ship it back to them it should be covered in the lifetime warranty?????

    Or maybe a Beretta sight would work???

    I also wonder about a Beretta sight. The gun is ok for SD use the notch is just wider. Maybe I'll just bite the bullet and get night sights put in.

    If you can send me the remnants of the old one, I wouldn't mind machining you one that won't break.

    A piece of fabricated sheet metal painted black?
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I would epoxy a piece of sheet metal into the groove and file a very narrow notch in it with a jeweler's needle file. Adjust the POI by widening the notch one direction or the other until it hits minute of scumbag at powder burn distance.

    I'll probably take you up on that. Gunsmith has had it for 6 months with no progress.

    3d Printer. You could have a sheet of them printed as it can't be very large. A couple dozen could be printed at the same time and the excess sold.

    I know my local library has a few 3d printers that can be used for free. Always wanted to try it.

    Yeah a Beretta sight with the rest of the Beretta gun attached to it. That should fix your problem.

    That center piece is the ejector.

    Well I went and got the gun and the, now detached, sight blade back.
    It is teeny tiny.
    If you still want to take your best shot at machining one I can sent to you.
    I would appreciate any effort you could spare.

    I think he spill't some fuel in the clubhouse. Ruined the rugs and made it smell like Cape Canaveral.

    I missed that, too. What happened with him?

    It came to light that Rocketman was actually our old friend Ghostsniper sneaking back in after being banned twice before. That's why he was banned.

    That's a tough one to believe. Rocketman displayed some knowledge in some scientific areas where Ghostsniper was an auto mechanic with a messed up concept of how the world works. He never really displayed much of an IQ and his level of crazy would be hard to mask that well.

    There was some pretty good proof with him posting the same pictures here as Rocketman that Ghostsniper's real name posted on other sites. From what I understand, it happened multiple times.

    I thought so also, but after slowing down and reading his posts a few things started to appear. Wording things a certain way and such, our Mods do one heck of a job. Of course with all the free guns and models in the hot tub, they should :jester:

    Here's the half that is left.
    I may have to get an entire rear sight

    It goes without saying, I feel I owe any mod at least a beverage of their choice, more like dinner on me, should I get the chance. Nicely done.
