    Anyone?

    Is the front sight staked or dove-tailed?

    Heinie is the maker of the sight, staked or dove-tail is the method of which your front sight is attached.

    Google the two, and tell us which you have, from what I've seen on Taurus' web site it looks staked.

    This is a dove-tailed sigth, note how it's "T" shaped at the base, this portion of the sight slides into a cut out in the slide.




    I don't have the picture that I thought I did of a staked on sight, but if the base of your front sight just kind of "disappears" into the top of your slide without that foot, ledge, base what ever you want to call it, it's staked.

    If it's staked, take it to a gun smith to have it replaced with what ever you want, they can cut it for a dovetailed sight (preferred).

    A poorly staked front sight can come off at very inoppurtune moments.
