Clean all contact surfaces
with alcohol and blast dry with canned air. Clean fingers with alcohol too & blast dry. Remember, alcohol's flammable!
Put a small drop of Red Loctite on all contact surfaces and attach sight. I tighten the sight 1/4 - 1/2 turn past finger tight with a wrench. Make sure any final adjustment is a tightening
Clean off excess Loctite with Q-tips and patches.
Let sit 24-hours.
That's it! I've never had a front sight come loose!
Trijicons are the better target
sights. Avoid solvents and scrubbing on the sight's white O-rings, as they'll wipe off.
Judy has Trijicons on her G19, and they've held up fine, plus they're great target sights!
