There is so much residual oil held in the parkerizing, Loctite will not hold.
That makes a lot of sense! I'd rather not bend/punch anything, so I think I will go ahead and hunt down another rear sight instead.

Thanks for sharing this tip though!

Flat side of the flip towards the shooter, concave side towards target. S on the base of the flip sight should be on left side of the receiver.
