1927-a1 Rear Site
Posted 15 August 2004 - 07:22 AM
About a month ago, I was shooting the gun and the rear site flew off. Fortunantly, I found all the parts and pieces. What it appears to be is that the screws holding the rear site will not hold it in place. I thought about using red Loctite, but I don't think that is a permanent solution. The best solution seems to be riveting the rear site in place. My question is what rivets should I use since there is not much clearance when the bolt retracts. I have some of the copper rivets with the flat heads that is used for leather belting. Would this be the type to use?
I am sure some you guys have had this problem with the Kahr gun in the past, so what is your recommendation to properly install the rear site? Your kind assistance is appreciated.

After I reinstalled the screws into the receiver, they did tighten up, so the holes were not stripped out. I will have this done today. Thanks Again!!!
