Put the TRUGLO universal long bead fiber optic sight on a PT 709 and 740. Instead of looking for a different shorter screw I used the stock one and held bottom part with a pliers then used a cutting pliers to take off the needed amount and she went strait on no probs just add some blue lock tight,

We did the same for my 709 front sight last night, just used JB weld instead of Loctite. I really like the Long bead on there, had an immediate improvement in my accuracy.

I did the same thing a few days ago. I just filed the screw down but it took quite a while. Used red locktite. Let's see who loses their screw first. LOL I haven't shot it yet but I can see the sight much easier now.

I wanted to use the red lock tight but never can find any around at my LGS only the blue I heard the red takes the heat of the barrel better and holds a lot better.

Try the local auto parts store, easier to find red locktite there than just about anywhere else.

I've had the red locktite in my household toolbox for years. I normally use tools from the toolbox on my truck and forgot about this being there. I happened to see it so I used that. With my luck, it's not good any longer. LOL

Cutting pliers might be the way to go I used my bench grinder and after waiting for Taurus to send replacement screws changed over to the Glock Tritium 215 sight. Seems I ground too much away.......

The only thing bad went to the range and the screw and mount held up but the fiber optic rod flew out after about 175 rounds down range.

You need to heat the rod at both ends just a little or use hot glue to hold it in
