Kimber Compaq front sight question

Hi
I am new to this forum and relatively new to Kimbers.
I bought a Kimber compaq custom 45 and its front sight is loose.
any suggestions on how to tighten it without sending it back to Kimber?

The gun was lightly used when i bought it (everyone was right you can't just own one). And I didnt notice that the front sight was loose.
I can move the sight with my finger, left and right.
Only thing I can think of is to go to Midway and buy new sights.
any help would be appreciated.
thanks

You can try some blue or red loctite. Red is a little more permanent but both can be loosened with heat if ever needed to change. Or you can have a new sight properly fit if you want to go that direction?

If know someone with a site pusher you push the site out and put some blue loctite on it and reinstall it or you can take it to a gunsmith and they can do it.There are other ways to do it yourself but a site pusher is the best and probably the easiest. I wouldn't think it would cost much to have a gunsmith do it and it only takes a few minutes.
