I have a Glock model 22 on which the rear sight moves within the rear sight grove with minimal pressure. I have never had this problem with any Glocks or this Glock firearm itself. I first noticed the rear sight move when I was putting my shooting gear in my trunk and the Glock slid out of its case and landed near the edge of the trunk, it only fell two to four inches and did not land on the sight. I noticed right away the sight was off to the right of center and when I put little pressure on it to the left it moved very easy. Do I need to get the rear sight replaced or can it be fixed with a rear sight mounting tool?

Hopefully the sight was installed incorrectly and accidentally pushed in one direction too far. This would have crushed the sight more than intended and allowed it to move. Replacing the sight is the best place to start. If the new sight moves the problem is most likely an oversized dovetail. This too is easily resolved but you will need to purchase an aftermarket sight that locks into position with a set screw.
