In my Kimber 1911, I replaced the factory sights with the Truglo BrightSight time ago.
Very nice improvement WRT the factory sight, at least for a while.
Today, after printing a shotgun pattern on the target, I noticed that the front sight came loose.
Can anyone throw some clean way to fix it this way?

Use JB Weld....Pack the cracks with it, repeen, and wipe off what sqeezes out.

I ended up peening it (slide steel was pretty fscking hard BTW) and using red Loctite.
Hopefully it will hold.
