I just took a look at the Trijicon sights on my SA EMP. The rear sight has a hex screw, but it looks like the front sight has one of those rolled pins that hold it in.

If your problem is with the front sight, I would take it to a gunsmith and have him secure the pin. If you are brave you could try to tap it back in, or replace it yourself.
Hope this helps.

Bill thanks. Yeah, I bought it new and have the two hex wrenches. The problem was with the front sight and the roll pin as backing out. I very gently tapped it back in and should be good to go for a little while. At least until it works its way back out again. I sent another email to SA and will follow up with a phone call Monday. I haven't heard back from them yet via email. Hope I can get through on the phone.

After 300 rounds and the slight buffing I gave the feed ramp, cocking lug and chamber throat and fine layer of grease on the slide rails and cocking lug the durn thing is sssssmmmoooooth! Love the way it shoots and its dead-on accurate.
Thanks for the info everyone. Gonna have to go out and get a carry version of this weapon before too long.

Yep, nice 1911 you got there. I want one too but I want one without a bushing. I just hate messing with the darn thing. It's just one of my little quirks. I hate barrel bushings on 1911's. I find them to be a pain in the neck.
