Help: retaining screw on Heinie Slant-pro rear sight

I had set of Heinie sights installed by a gunsmith. The rear sight was returned without a retaining screw. While the sight seem tight, I wrote the gunsmith (who is several states away) and asked him to mail me the necessary screw. When I tried to install the screw, it turned easily about three turns, but then became difficult to turn. It was the correct screw and was not cross threaded. I kept on turning the screw forward and back and applied some oil to it. I now have the top of the screw flush with the surface of the sight. CAN THOSE OF YOU WITH HEINIE SIGHTS TELL ME IF THIS IS THE CORRECT POSITION OR IS THE SCREW ON THEIR SIGHTS BELOW THE SURFACE? IF YOU COULD POST A PHOTO, THAT WOULD BE A BIG HELP.

I would like to thank all the members of this forum who have been so helpful in the past. This forum is head and shoulders above the other 1911 forums on the net.

Rita,
The screw is only backup and should not be considered the only thing holding that sight in. Your smith loctited it and trust me, it won't go anywhere now. the screw you put in will not change a thing other than extra security. I bet that site won't come off without some serious heat now that its been loctited...if its flush with the site, you are good to go.

Hey hows it going, I got to keep you guys straight.
My dang other hobby has been getting all my time (Knifemaking, damascusmaking).
Now I just need to find a way to combine my two hobbies.

One of the current gun rags on the newstand has an article about a high dollar 1911 with a Heine rear sight. Can't remember the name of the magazine. Anyway, it shows the set screw seated signficantly below the surface of the sight--maybe .030--.040 inch.
