    So I was out shooting my kahr cm9 with trijicon night sights and the front sight ended up popping off and unfortunately I was not able to find it, when I was at home trying to remove the screw so I couldn't replace the sight I noticed there appears to be red threadlock on the screw, how can I remove the screw without having to heat the slide up to remove the threadlock

    Just stick the front of the slide in a toaster so the whole thing doesn't get heated up. lol

    Reno911 gave you the right answer. Just make sure you use the right screwdriver and take it slowly.

    Should I also hold the slide while it's in the toaster so it doesn't faze lol over I was also thinking maybe a hear gun but wasn't sure if it would discolor the slide but I'll try the soldering iron
