I went to the gun range for the second time with my P365. I noticed that my rear sights moved left and right Are they supposed to? If so how do I recalibrate them. If not do I return them or the gun? I did not drop it
If I’m not mistaken P365 comes with FIXED sights, so either sight pusher or hammer and punch will work for you.
However the weird thing is that your sight is moving by itself, what definitely shouldn’t occur.
If you want to play with calibration, here is what SIG recommends:
Make sure the sight is not moving anymore once you re calibrate it. Blue Loctite can help.
If you find it moving again - call SIG.
Or if you still can return the gun, just return.
Yes. It moves left and right and even fell out in the case. I have no idea how that happened.
The windage is adjustable on the P365 but the elevation is not.
Ok. Got to read up on those terms
You can adjust the sights left or right but not up and down.
Joseph. Thanks. It even came out of the slot. I’ll have to be careful because it could get lost. Should I return it to the place where I bought it. Mayb they glue it in place. There are no stops on the side of the groove it inserts into
You do not glue sights if they come off.
That is defected product and you have to talk either with gun store or SIG.
I’m not sure if you will be able to return it, but you can always call SIG for warranty repair.
Contact Sig. Sights should never move around when you shoot.
Agree that it is defective. Just give Sig a call. They will fix it for you at no charge.
If you bought it at a big box store you will likely need to deal direct with Sig.
If you bought it at a regular firearms dealer (recently) and the slide is ‘as new’ (including guide rails) you may be able to talk nice to him and get him to swap out the slide only so that you can be up and shooting.
Remember that he is doing you a favor if he does it so I recommend showing appreciation if he says ok and staying respectful if he says no. There is HIGH demand right now and it will literally be money out of his pocket to take a saleable gun (if he has one) and turn it into a defect return.
They are not supposed to move left to right where you can actually see them doing so, they are loose, you can probably tighten them yourself or reach out to sig Sauer customer service.
Johnny, they fall out. I’ll take it by the LGS where I Got it. They only had three of the tac version I bought. I liked the 12 mag extension. I liked the smaller barrel it had over the XL and the SAS sight was strange to me
If your ‘handy’ you can probably peen the dovetail on the sight itself in a few places and make it just fine.
I know I guy who had a Glock 22 who dropped it in the back of his armored car. The rear site came off, He picked up the site and the tension spring and could not figure out how to put it together so he sold it.
I helped he new owner put the site back together and he has been happy as could be with it. We got really lucky and he did not have to make any adjustments once we got it in place.
I tell the story because it sounds to me like you are missing the tension spring or it is damaged and not applying the proper amount of friction required.
Don. I only notice the sights issue at the range when i laid the gun on its side and went to laid my three magazines. Saw it off the gun. Never noticed a spring. Kinda looks like the glue came off. There is a small shiny part in the channel where the sight sits
Honestly I have no experience with the P365 so I cant really say. I would call Customer Support and/or take it to someone/somewhere you trust and ask them about it.
The rear sight on a P365 is a press fit so the firearm is defective. The sight itself was either machined wrong or the dovetail cut in the slide is wrong. Need to contact Sig and they will instruct you on what needs to be done.
