TECH TIP: Install the slide in a padded vise and use 2 leather strips (an old belt works great) for padding. We use a large brass punch/drift/rod with an equally large hammer to remove the sight. Makes no difference which direction you drive the sight.
When installing the new sight it may be necessary to file the base of the dovetail slightly. You must drive the sight in and fit snug for a proper fit. If you get it to loose, remove the sight, degrease the slide and sight base, and apply red loctite to the bottom of the dovetail and install.
NOTE: Does not fit Shadow, PCR, 97B or BD, 40P or 40B. Matching Front Sight see Part Number 050-278
