    I got some new sights for my pistol and am having the hardest time figuring out how to get these factory sights off.

    I have no problem w/ taking it to a gunsmith, but as I like to do things myself (and learn) and if I can do it without breaking something, then I'll do it myself.

    Anyone have any idea how to to this? I've tried the Beretta sight pusher, no luck. And I've tried a drift punch, no luck there either.

    I'm open to suggestions.

    thanks

    You may need a sight pusher to do it correctly without leaving marks.
    Normally the sights are installed from the port side.

    Without the correct tool, installation could break parts of night sights.

    As I stated in my post, I have a pusher...the sight won't budge. :)

    I've found some info that states the site is "staked" at the factory to hold it in place better and that it why it won't budge.

    I think I've found a gunsmith I can use in the area.

    Success! Would have helped if the dang instructions had been correct.

    The instruction that come /w the Beretta sight pusher clearly state: "Push the sight out of the right side of the slide, as the muzzle is pointed away from you."

    I was looking at Beretta's website and the picture showed it pushing the other direction (out the left).

    I called up Beretta and they confirm to push in out the left side. I informed them the instruction that come w/ their pusher are wrong.

    So I tried again, pushing the sight out the left side and whadya know, it worked! :)

    New Trijicon night sights are now installed.
