I seen a video on youtube that a guy had the same problem [ame]http://youtu.be/4VpOHT3hk9E[/ame]....He sent the gun back to Ruger and they installed a new site on it....Ruger has awesome customer service.
Mine has been holding on for several thousand rounds. Samson mentioned the sight needs a gap to mitigate the effects of heat expansion. Might be something to that. My front sight does have a gap between the slide and front of the sight of .002".Has anyone had a sight that doesn't break?
Ruger has had my mini 14 longer than I have had it. I had ejection problems, not sight problems, although I have read about people have some sight problems with the mini 14.Finally got to the range and put 50 rounds through my Commander. Grand total of 100 rounds by me and 28 by the Ruger gunsmith who repaired it the first time I sent it back right after I got the gun. Long story short, 128 rounds and the front sight broke off. I have to send it back again. The Ruger sight issue is common, I guess from other posts in this forum. If this keeps up Ruger will have the gun more than me.
