Glock 19 Front Sight is slightly crooked?
#1
OK so after shooting today I was cleaning the G19 and it looks like the front sight is a bit off. Pointing slightly to the left?
Do I have to take this to a gunsmith or is this a DIY job?
Its on there tight so not sure how it would have moved?

If you have an armorers tool it is very easy to straighten up and tighten.

If you look inside the slide where the bottom of the front sight comes down, you should see a hex nut. You can use needle nosed pliers to loosen it or just twist the front sight counterclockwise. Once off, clean the area with alcohol, apply thread lock to the threads, and then put your sight back on. Hopefully, you can get your sight off without breaking it or else you will need to buy s new one. They aren't expensive.

I've seen Glock front sight tools all over the place, Gander Mountain and Bass Pro Shop. Go to your nearest big box outdoor store. Look in the optics/ sights department.
You want one of these;

You could use a very small pair of pliers, but it's nice to have the right tool for the job.

^ For $9 more you can get a very handy all purpose Glock tool. I use this tool more than I ever thought I would.

you can handle this repair. as already said disassemble gun look inside of slide and you will see hex headed screw. remove screw then push out sight. clean off any oils and reassemble with locktite. use the blue version as it is removable with a little heat. just make sure sight is straight when you do this. once the locktite sets you can,t move it without starting over. if you get in a bind i have the tool as well as sights in stock. your just a postage stamp away.

I haven't had the time yet to take it apart. Hopefully tomorrow it'll be quiet and I can do this. Thanks for the offer on the tool. Smile

It uses a 3/16 socket but a socket or nut driver is too thick so you need the tool. I picked up a multi tool for the glock.

If visuals help, search for "Glock front sight" on YouTube. I've learned to do most of my little projects via YouTube.

Standard Glock sites are cheap plastic.

If you're having trouble now they'll probably fall off when you really need them.

Get rid of them and put on some steel night sights.
