Hello, on the KP45, the front sight, part 5, has become loose and will slide off the trench on the slide.

I thought this was a pressure installation, but since it is loose, should I use glue to keep it from sliding off?

Or is it an issue with the slider and would need replacement?

Do your adjustments and then add a small amount of super glue to lock it in place.

There's a non-permanent method that I use. Take a very small strip of teflon tape and fold it up. Place it half way under the front sight and then slide the sight into place. As you slide it, it should pull the tape under itself so you can't see it anymore. The tape will hold it very very tightly but if you ever need to re-zero your pistol you can move the sight if you use a fair bit of force.
