Just received a new ATP. The rear sight is slightly off-center, but not loose. Before I do anything to damage it, I want to confirm that it's simply drift adjustable? Or should I be cautious of some form of adhesive holding it firm?

Thanks.

Yep, you can drift it any way you'd like. If you want, take a dab of glue and place a drop on the bottom of the rear sight, so when you slide it back into place, it will stay in place.

I'm not so sure how to proceed. I gave the rear sight some gentle and then some rather firm raps with a nylon gunsmith hammer, and it isn't budging. I don't want to break the part, but what's the deal? There must be some form of glue or adhesive in there from the factory. Obviously, there are no set screws, but there's no way that there is just pressure alone holding that in. The alloy KWA uses isn't exactly tool-steel hard...

That's probably because it's glued in....

I wonder if the hairdryer would work on it?

Try it...but it is probably super glued on so that may not work.
