Pound Out Your Sights!

By James Nicholas



The factory front sight snapped off as the customer used a punch and hammer to remove it. 

A customer sent me his pistol so I could help him remove his sights. Now Springfield Armory XD`s do have tight dovetails and the sights can be hard to remove without using proper technique and tools. What you do not want to do is take a big ole hammer to pound the sights out. Luckily this customer only snapped his front sight off without damaging the slide. One mishap was enough so the customer threw in the towel  and let me finish the job correctly without further damage.

If you found this article helpful please consider helping us out by buying your sights from us. If you buy sights from us the installation is free. If you already have sights but need them installed, thats only 25.00 after return shipping!
