Loose, screwed up dovetail?
I'm trying to put a steel rear sight on an aluminium .22 Glock conversion kit. The dovetail already seemed a little buggered from someone installing sights, and then I really screwed it up. I started the sight in with a pusher and it went in at a slight angle. By the time I realized it, it had already cut a small groove into the slide. Well, now when I try to start it again, I can't get it started straight. And the other side of the dovetail seems loose.
Is there some simple fix to all this?
Not to worry, small ball peen hammer to help roll back over any materiel raised on the top of the slide. Small tri-side needle file to fix your dovetail. Couple of way to tighten up dovetail- with a lite ball peen hammer you can peen over the top of the slide to tighten the fit. You can take a pin prick punch and with raise the bottom of the dovetail by lightly tapping the punch to create raise materiel along the bottom of the dovetail, this will also tighten up the site. But if your that far gone, Lock tight the sight and allow to set-up, makes sight-in difficult if windage adjustment is needed.
