    I can't move my front sight using the bullet tip, and even tried using some needle nose pliers, but no luck :o
    I'll gladly pay shipping/deposit :x:

    Just make sure it doesn't have the shoulder thing that goes up on it.

    Is it stuck all the way down? Did you put it in yourself?

    I didn't put it in myself. I can get the thing down, but I can't get it to turn more than a tiny bit, enough that it keeps the ball down, but it won't go a full quarter turn to the next dent, at least not using a bullet tip.

    Sounds like maybe it's all the way down. Have you tried moving it up?

    I am trying to move it up. I don't think it's all the way down, because I've moved it a couple of clicks up using the bullet tip and pliers, but I can't get it to move anymore using that method.

    Yeah, the first thing I thought was it will cost you more to ship it back and forth than to just buy one.

    I was seeing them around for $10-$20 plus shipping, so I figured someone could throw it in an envelope for me, but at $4, yeah, I'll just buy one. :)

    let me know what their shipping is. I need one too and a couple other things, but not going to make an account until I figure it out, since you're buying anyways

    EDIT: sick of these fucking companies charging $10 shipping UPS or whatever bullshit when they can use flat rate boxes and ship small light shit like that for $4

    It wants me to complete the order without telling me how much shipping is. Says shipping TBD. I didn't place it because I don't want a fucking $10 shipping charge on an item they could put in a $0.44 envelope.
    They ship UPS ground and require a signature on delivery :ugh:

    I did all that and at the final order confirmation page, it still said "Shipping: TBD"
    Fuck that.
