    Don't think it's hard at all. The front sight on an m&p is dovetailed so you would need a specialized sight pusher tool or a universal tool. Or you go with the ol tried and true punch and hammer. I'm actually waiting on a uni sight pusher tool myself. Replacing factory sights with truglo tfo. Good luck

    You might want to double check this, but the M&P sight comes
    off from left to right and back on from right to left. Most dovetail
    sights come off and back on in a certain direction. If you use a
    hammer and punch, you should use a delrin, brass or aluminum
    punch and be very careful no to damage the slide finish. Painter's
    tape (blue) on the slide will help protect the finish.
