Installation of the rear sight
For installation it is not necessary to adjust the slide by any way.
When you have the slide, you need a place to hold it tight - ideally a vice with some kind of leather attached to the endings so that you dont scratch / damage your slide when fitting.
When you have the slide fixed, you can start with the original rear sight. In case of a rear sight with a screw from the top, first unscrew the screw before getting any further.
We recommend using any middle material between the hammer and the rear sight, preferably a brass punch so that you dont damage your pistol nor the sight.
You need to knock the rear sight under 45 degree angle so that it does not get stuck.
This part of the replacement sometimes be easy, sometimes very nerve draining as the rear sight can go very tough. Most of the time however, unless you stuck the raer sight in the dove tail you just need to use more power.
When you have the rear sight out, you need to clean the dovetail with thinner and spray a bit of oil afterwards.
As the new rear sights usually have a screw from the top for fixation, you better check if the screw is not exceeding the rear sight in the bottom so that it does not obstruct.
Then, you just knock the new rear sight into the dovetail on the position of the original one. After having the new rear sight in the correct position, just fix it with the screw and that it. Rear sight replaced!
