This morning after church was going to clean it then shoot it...this is what the front sight looks like Polished feed ramps and barrel while I wait for sccy's email... Will post updates of sccy's response. Thanks

***UPDATE 8/31/15****
I live in Texas (for the time difference), just got off the phone with Gary from sccy service department. He listen to my description and his response (very simple and to the point) push it in or pull it out haha he went on to say he didn't want me to be without the pistol a week bc of a front sight so he is sending a new front sight in the mail today. Gary also stated just get some super glue when installing the new one. At first I laughed I didn't think he was serious but he was. We will see how the super glue works. I will post when the front sight gets here and the install..hey for 214.99 a little super glues okay right?? Lol Happy Monday everyone!

Recently, SCCY announced they would no longer be sending parts to users to do their own fixes. This situation, where they're sending the front sight to you, is good to hear as it indicates some common sense application of their policy rather than a blanket policy of needing to send a pistol back to Daytona for every little thing.

The weapon will operate the same, with or without that glued-on part.
Shoot it, and discover if there are other functional issues of greater concern.
Then if/when it needs to go back to the factory, they can fix the sight too.

All three white dots eventually came off mine.
I used rubbing alcohol to clean, and Rust-Oleum white appliance touch-up paint ($3 at Menards).
Also used it to fill-in the "SCCY" engraved on the slide (scraped-off excess with razor blade).

Jumping in at the end about super glue, that stuff is amazing. The commercials of a drop holding a man up by his hard hat are true.

The glue is a liquid super strong plastic liquid that sets when it comes into contact with water in the atmosphere. At that point it's a stiff heat resistant plastic and since it was liquid it stays on what it was put on. You could get a bottle of the gel super glue, attach two cars via a plate, and the plates would break first.

Parerd thanks for your very experienced insight in the ownership of your sccy. For 214.99 I didn't expect a dusky carry gun with the fit and finish of anything above a 214.99 gun. Sorry you have a bad taste in your mouth for sccy. Who cares if it breaks or the pin walks out in a range gun when I can get the part to fix it 3 days later for free haha so keep me updated on your comments it's always a good laugh. Thanks guys for all your replys! Be safe

Where you talking about trusting your life as in taking a chance in shooting it at the range? Lol because this is defiantly not my edc pistol. With that being said it was fun to shoot, hey I've seen pellet rifles go for more than these pistols... Thanks for everyones replys!

Why are you here if you hate Sccy so much?

The front sight isn't "trusting your life" to much of anything and the superglue is probably as strong as most welds.
