    G3C Front Sight issue

    So I've experience this and I've heard of many others. New G3C front sight comes loose after shooting a couple mags. Anyone else see this issue? I guess a 2mm hex is what you need to get her tightened up.

    I've found I need thread locker on any front sight retained with a screw, whether, Taurus, Kahr, or Glock. Blue thread locker on the screw threads AND on the base of the sight and they don't move again.
