based on the comment above, I decided to wait a few days to respond so that i could carry it in the holster and pocket to get the feel for how it would do with the new sites; in the holster I have not had any issues with anything snagging so far; in the pocket it can grab a little if you pull it out fast and it can and sometimes catches on the edge of the pocket but not to the point where its a major concern for me. Thanks for the reply though cause it did make me actually take a look at that when I hadnt really thought about it.

Good deal! What does the end of your barrel look like, around the crown? Mine looked terrible... turned out to be carbon buildup. I had shot maybe 100 rounds through at that point, plus the ~15 at the factory, but it looked like it was 10 years of buildup on there. Curious if you're seeing the same, or if it's clean since you haven't shot it yet.

Hanks for the reply. I think your right about the thread locker on it. Mine was pretty tough to get off. Just had to use some muscle. Was a chore tho

I removed mine and it definitely took some elbow grease. I used a long wrench on the FH and then had a piece of soft rubber that I used to grip the barrel to apply opposite pressure. There must be some sort of Loctite on there, because you'll feel it "break" and then it unthreads by hand. I've read about other folks making a sort of clamp with wood to grip the barrel in a vice and then use a wrench on the FH.

If you check out my discussion thread (post #12) you can read my experience with this task. I put on a thread protector and it looks pretty nice for $8. You can sell your old FH on Ebay, too, if you want to get back another $5-10.

Good luck!

Looks great. My only concern is that the rear sight may snag. I had trijicon sights on my Glock 42 and put the stock sights back on because the rear sight would snag

I use Froglube. It's a grease type of green substance that's in a jar.

If my wife complains, I just hold up one of the many fingernail polishes sitting around the house that stink worse than Hoppes  :main_winkani_ncc:
