View Full Version : LC9 rear site

March 21, 2012, 01:09 AM
I recently purchased a used LC9 with the laser.
I love it so far for carry purposes.
While at the range, I watched my nephew shoot 2 mags thru it.
It was an outdoor range so we didnt use the laser.
He only got 6 rounds on paper and I know he's a better shot then that,I taught him how to shoot:)
Upon closer inspection, the rear site is loose and sliding all over the place.
Do I need to loctite it in place or just tighten it down?
Plus should I site it in at 10 yards like the factory does for the laser?
Any help,thanks in advance.

The rear sight is drift adjustable so you only have left-right and no option of sighting for any particular distance. That is unless you have a different sight than Ruger installed at the factory. I'd just center it up and be done with it.

Loc-tite shouldn't be required, but couldn't hurt either.

Do you know what the little spring loaded button is under the rear site?

Plunger and Firing Pin Blocker Spring.

I haven't had mine apart, but I've watched a youtube video about getting the firing pin out.

Here's an exploded parts diagram. If you hover over the highlighted part it gives the description...
