Quite frankly, I can't think of a single handgun that has the sights screwed on. Most are mounted in some form of dovetail. I'd rather have something is unlikely to break, or loosen, and I can't imagine a mount using machine screws that would not do so.Originally posted by emmo:
Okay, one thing I never understood: Why are all high-quality rear sights dovetailed into the slide? .....If all rear sights simply screwed into the slide, I could do it myself in seconds while keeping the slide original. Is there something seriously wrong with using screws? Why doesn't any 1911 manufacturer use this method of sight installation?
