FAL REAR SIGHT SLOP??

How do I tighten the rear sight up? It flops back and forth.

Side to side or front to back?

I just "vised" mine together a bit without the sight base installed. (With the sight base, I couldn't get enough bend to do any good.) Anyway, if you overdo-it on the bend, just file/dremel to fit.

Did one like this tonight, and it now fits very snug. Worst you'll do is destroy the sight, but new ones are not that expensive.

(Before doing this . . . is your "sight-spring setup" installed? A missing spring will give lot's of wobble as well.)

Both

Side to side and front to back slop. The spring is there and installed correctly.

Try a new spring for the one inside the sliding part. I got a Imbel kit that had a bad or broken spring. Replace the spring and it was like new
