Hi all, new member here. I'd like to replace the sights on my 1911 (rear will be the 10-8 NM sight; front is still up for debate but something thinner than the current stock front sight). It's a bone-stock reproduction Colt 1911 series 70 and will be used for plinking, perhaps a class or two, and occasional carry. I just had a question regarding the staked on front sight. I talked to a gunsmith and he told me I'm better off just getting a dovetail cut for the front sight because the staked on tenon sights are fragile and prone to breakage. The only thing is, I'd like to keep my 1911 as traditional looking as possible. So for those of you who have any experience in this field, how fragile are staked on front sights? Are they notorious for shooting loose or breaking? I've read about using loctite but are there any other methods to prevent the front sight from shooting loose? I apologize if this has already been addressed but I haven't been able to find very many threads/info on this matter. Thanks in advance!
