A sad day at the range today

My Classic lost part of its rear sight.

I have no idea. I was doing a string of fire and something came back towards me on the last shot. I just thought it was a piece of brass, although brass never comes back at me. I went to fire another mag and all I had was a front sight.

Sorry to hear that...It is a bummer.

I would suppose if just normal shooting can crack a slide (I just had a cracked slide on an STI last fall) I would think normal-shooting could crack a defective sight.

I would ask WC to fix it. I would guess they would do it for free, they just are that great about such things.

Wow, that's a first. I've had sights walk out of many guns and actually my NHC and my optics Wilson also had the rears leave the gun. Never seen one break off like that

Last month, I had a front, fiber optic sight break on an STI Sentry. Sights break. It's a rarity, but it happens. I suspect Wilson Combat will fall all over themselves getting it repaired for you.

I hope Wilson makes it right, but my worst day at the range is still better than my best day at work.

Damn dude, I thought something bad happened. It’s just a gun and fixable.
WC will fix it.
