The hump & bump sights were designed for durability but are not exactly user friendly.
Not cheap to replace either. PITA

Clark Custom can take care of the problem - google them and they'll give you a quote.

I love adj sights because I shoot whatever's on sale and don't like to aim high & right to hit the center.

If you want adjustable sites that work be prepared to stake a front site

Or you could save the value of the gun and buy a new slide with the sights you want.

Not sure how easy that is in your neck of the woods?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Good thought- With Ebay letting gun parts back in there are always a lot of slides there for grabs - some go for a good price - some go for a crazy price
Thats Ebay for you
