    Default Broken Front sight

    20171120_112856.jpg

    Anyone ever seen a front sight break under recoil this way?

    Was shooting today and noticed the front sight split. The slide has never been dropped and found it really wierd.

    Did it get broken in storage or transport?

    Seems strange but as always, man made. Metal suppressor sight?

    Looks like the sight was hollow and mim on top of it. First time I have seen one break that way.

    At least it is still functional, if a bit strange looking for the sight picture.

    Early MOS sights had some brittleness issues when we melonited. A new sight is already en route to you.

    I think you're seeing the vertical screw hole and the front end of the tritium insert hole for a night sight. Definitely a weird break though.

    That's cool of Gabe to take care of it so quickly.

    SI was awesome in handling. Far better CS than any other company that I ever called. I have 4 SI slides and a shit ton of sights, along with a bunch of RMR kits. Absolutely love the product and company. I trust it enough to run SI equipment on my off duty. Cant wait for a Gen5 slide!
