I have an EMP40 with Trijicon sights. The pin holding the front sight in has fallen out. Has anyone else had that happen?

I emailed Springfield to see if they can send another one, we'll see.

The pins are usually tight in my experience. Never had that happen with a pinned front blade.

I was rather surprised myself. The way I found out was the sight fell off!

Which brings to mind another question. Shouldn't the dovetail be a bit tight? This one I can shake the gun and the sight falls out.

I am not familiar with a pinned dovetail but, every dovetail I have installed had to be tapped in with a brass punch and in fact most even took some custom filing with a small fine file to fit at all so they were all very tight fits.

Thats what I thought. This thing slips right out.
