KWA/KSC Glock 17 Rear Sight

I just got a Glock 17, It has been upgraded with the metal slide and barrel, and is missing the rear sight. I could find nowhere that sold the rear sight replacement, so I bought a real glock rear sight.

The problem is that real steel glocks rear sights must be pressed in, and typically will never fall out. The rear sight on this particular gun should have a screw to hold it in place. The sight that I bought does not have a hole for this screw, and I do not know if it could be drilled or not. Just curious if anyone else has had this problem, and how did you guys solve it? Should I use a model cement, super glue, epoxy, or what?

Make the hole, then locktite the screw in for some extra insurance.

Well I have to find a similar screw to fit into that hole as well. I dont know if I can drill through it without messing it up because the real steel glock sight has a metal insert in it for some reason. Either way, good suggestion.

I am going to mediablast the slide and barrel on the gun and polish it tonight, and after that I will install the new sight with the screw and some loctite (Should stick better on prepped metal) and it should turn out pretty damn cool if you ask me. I should have it to mirror finish before tomorrow. I may airbrush some parts on it as well. Possibly a clearcoat over the finish to protect its shine, maybe a urban mirageflage on the handle.
