    FAL rear sight

    Can anyone tell me how to tighten up a fal rear sight? I've got a couple that flop around more than I'd like.

    Thanks, Greg

    They can be shimmed with steel shims under there too. I avoided the whole problem by buying an A2 style rear sight from DSA and fitting that - a much better sight all the way around. Adjustment of windage is via the knob and there are two apertures.
