    SD9VE rear sights moving

    Hey dudes,

    So I bought an SD9, and has the slide cerakoted. Unfortunately. Now the rear sights aren't as secure as I'd like. What sort of glue, or tricks, can I use to keep the sight from sliding left and right?

    That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.

    The most professional (and most expensive) way to correct this would be to fit a brand new rear sight. Or to remove the existing sight, solder some additional material onto the dovetail and file it down until you have a nice tight fit.

    The easiest way to fix it and one you can definitely do yourself is to apply some blue Loctite. Do not use red or it will require heat to remove it. Here's the process you should follow.

    Take your pistol to the range. Make sure the rear sight is aligned where you want it and mark it's location so you can return it to that position.

    Carefully remove the rear sight.

    Lightly sand the male and female dovetail surfaces to aid in adhesion.

    Apply blue Loctite to both dovetail surfaces.

    Reinstall the rear sight so that it aligns with your marks.

    Remove excess Loctite

    Wait for it to dry.

    You should be good to go and you'll be able to remove the rear sight with hand tools if necessary without applying heat.

    You could also cut a coke can and make a shim to put under it. But if it is something you plan on carrying I would just replace them with quality sights.
