I have a 2A that I recently bought from Aim. I took it to the range today and discovered that the rear sight slide moves under recoil. The knurled barrel doesn't seem to grip the grooves in the slide. I wonder where I might find replacement parts. I would be happy to use 2A1 parts as well.

Before you replace, CLEAN. IT probably has cosmoline that has hardened inside it. A good cleaning with a grease solvent will most likely restore the sight.

Well you're right, I thought I'd got all (or nearly) of the cosmoline off the whole thing but I went back with a sharp blade and lacquer thinner and dug out the grooves. It is much improved, thanks.
