I have the KWC Tac version....my rear sight is loose and I can't tell if you use a allen key or did a screw fall out?

Yes - the picture isn't sharp enough (clear) to show whether you need an Allen key, or if a tiny screw fell out- probably the former. Close, but not quite. Look like it might be an allen screw head.

Magnifyers will help - about + 4 diopter glasses from a pharmacy- I always have a pair in my fly fishing box for hitting the eye of small flies with the tippet. They are good to have in the shop if you don't have a head-set magnifier glasses.

Canadianguy,

If it is like other KWC 1911s, that just 'looks' like an allan key screw but is actually molded into the sight.

Take a look at the diagram here: http://www.kwc.com.tw/images/MANUAL/KMB-77.pdf

The sight Z37 is held on by screw E04 from below. Unfortunately, the blow-back system must be removed to get at it.

Loctite is your friend!

Hope this helps.

So it's not actually a adjustable sight? You have to take the blowbackr to tighten it?

Canadianguy,

You are welcome.

I am not sure why it is done that way. Perhaps due to there being no support under the dovetail other than the blow-back breech.

Watch for the nozzle spring (S02)!
And don't lose the floating valve (P08).

And yes, have fun!

I just figured it out how to take the blow back box out. There is a small allan key bolt right where the hammer hit's....easy peasy....:)

Thanks

I'm just bringing this post back because the link up top is dead! I can't find how to take the blowback out, I know and I see the little spring. But I'm baffled....I didn't put any loctite last time. But will this time

There is a little spring there,I'm not sure if that's all I need to take out or take out the bolt in front of the hammer?

Getting old bad memory lol
