AR-15 A3 handle rear sight question

I got a free removable carry handle for my flattop AR, but the rear sight pivots right and left. There is a little hole in the front of the sight that looks like it should have a roll pin in it to attach the rear sight to the handle to keep it from pivoting. Can anyone confirm if a pin goes in the hole?

It was free so I guess I can't complain if I have to fix it.

post a pic if you can, i know there is some play with the rear sight (left and right) but if it doesnt free spin then your good. ensure that your elevation knob goes down to 6/3-2 and up to 5. i have to go to the range next week, just in time for it to rain till Wednesday

Here is a picture, the arrow points to hole that looks like it should contain a pin. The red dots on the left and right are points that the rear sight pivots to, it runs into the edge of the carry handle and stops.

Rock River! That's what I have and I feel it is nicer than the DPMS and Bushmaster... Smith & Wesson is a big expensive name.
