    What else would you expect...but I did find my front sight loose when I got home.

    I put about 200 rounds through it this afternoon at a training class. I haven't owned or shot a Glock in several years and I was very happy with it. Accurate and reliable.

    This is one I got recently that only had a few rounds through it. It has Glock night sights and I will be adding blue loctite as soon as I can get the sight off. I tightened with my finger and now it won't loosen and I don't have anything to fit it. :(

    Surprisingly it is already showing a touch of holster wear from using an OWB Kydek holster today. The new slide finish is supposed to be pretty tough stuff so I didn't expect to see that.

    I will be putting another 500 rounds or so through it tomorrow in another full day of training.

    Not surprised with the finish wear, Kydek is hard on any finish.

    I thought the cut out in the front of the grip might bother me where my pinky goes across it but I never even noticed it.[​IMG]

    Most of the harder rain was in the morning before we went to the range so it wasn't any problem. It was a nice cool afternoon for shooting.

    When you get done with the class let us know your thoughts on it if you would.

    I installed some Trijicon HD’s on my Glock 19.5 fri night. Yesterday around 5pm I was showing a buddy and noticed the front sight was loose. I know the screw is tight so maybe the loctite didn’t take right? Going to mess with it again today. I have another set to put on my new glock 45 gen 5

    I was able to get my sight loose last night with some needle nose pliers, added a couple of small drops of blue Loctite and tightened it back up.

    After shooting through the class today it is still tight.
