    Just bought a model 327 I'm very new to the revolvers, I took it to the range shot 2 boxes of 357mag when I got home the rear sights were loose and one of the pins almost slides out when u turn it to the side. Anyone know some adjustment or tweaks I should make to fix my problem?

    Pick up a tube of lock-tite for guns. A drop of that in the sight should solve that problem. The pin sounds like it wasn't installed properly - a drop of lock-tite might fix that, too.

    Sorry... Did not know this was an old post until after I posted my response.

    Doesnt the Night Guard series come with adjustable rear sights? If so and you use lock-tite, you will never be able to adjust it. Once used and it's on there for good. Sounds to me the sight was not tightened properly before shipping. If this is a new purchase, I would take it back and see if they can correct it for you. If you bought it used, you have a lifetime warranty from S&W, and I would contact them to see what they reccomend.

    Please keep us up to date on how it was resolved, and good luck.
