Sight slipping

Hello. Any idea how to stop front sight from slipping? I have this Krebs Custom

And is very tight but the front sight still spins. Even by hand. Any suggestions?

Have you asked Krebs?

For that matter, have you considered RTV, light duty LockTite, or heavy grease( e.g. chassis lube or wheel bearing)?

Emailed Krebs and waiting on a reply. This is slipping where the ring meets the barrel.

You meant the front sight assembly or housing. The actual sight screws down into it.

Have you considered solder, silver solder, or medium grade LockTite (requires 300-350F to loosen)?
