front sight

I need to move the front sight on My P245. How do I do it, tap it with a punch?

Thanks

Rick

There is a specific pusher tool used for Sig sights. Many target shooting facilities, gunsmiths and gun store have them. Some may let you use the tool for free or charge $10 and do it for you. A punch will ruin the gun, so don't even attempt it.

I used a plastic mallet & a small wooden dowel. This worked fine for me when I installed a set of Mepros on my 220ST but having a matte stainless finish is much harder to hurt. I have also used the wooden dowel on a od-green Springfield finish with fine results. Just don't get in a hurry or slip, and be sure to only tap the dowel against the sight & not the slide. I am fairly brave though, you may want to use a pusher if one's available to you. :wink:

Thanks Kevin,

I did try a punch but no dice, too tight. I found a local pistolsmith and he moved both front and rear for me, no charge. Now it is right on.
