You need to clean off both pieces of metal where the epoxy will go then get some heavy duty stuff form AutoZone. The two part stuff can literally glue an engine block back together so it'll diffidently hold a sight on a firearm no problem.

Thank you for your replies---It is made by Chezpoint . I bought it five years ago and LIKE it alot. The rear site just fell off about a year ago. I'm using Locktite epoxy. The problem is that the topcover must flex during recoil. It's only sheet steel. As it flexes the epoxy can't adhere to the rear site. It was spot welded from the factory but, not very well. I don't think epoxy is the answer. Silver solder it??? I realy miss shooting it and think the rear site could have been fixed on there better. Any suggestions would be helpful.
