When changing the sights do you tighten the small screw to where you can not tighten any more? I know you are not to overtighten the screw but when I was tightening it I was not feeling that final resistance you feel when you tighten screws. I stopped for fear of messing up the sight or the screw. The owners manual reads tighten until snug. I don't know if I tightened enough. Any info on this would be helpful. Thanks

the set screw isn't really tightening anything down, its just expanding the front sight base like a wedge.
just snug it down, anymore than that and the little plastic threads can strip out
