    I use a brass drift punch placed on the bottom side of the dovetail on the sight. I have used blue loctite, rather than whacking the receiver, and it never moved after that. Often on M1icon Carbines, you find that the rear sight will be a little left of center in the receiver sight bridge.

    Peening the edge of the dovetail of the sight base is legitimate. First get it moderately tight to where you can shoot it. Now center the aperture and shoot. Adjust the sight by drifting the whole thing until you get lined up. Mark it. Now take it out, peen the edges some more and wedge that sucker in there on the marks. Having a sight pusher for the carbine is terrific for this but you can surely rig up something using your vise and some pieces of wood. At this point you may find you need to make very minor adjustments to the windage but you'll basically be on-line.
