I'd like to replace the fixed rear sight on my Beretta 92FS Inox with an adjustable one from Beretta. The sights are dove-tailed. Do I just put the gun in a vice, tap the old one out and tap the new one in? Can I remove and install from either side? What tool should I use to avoid damaging the black finish on the sights? Thanks!

The sights must be removed from right to left (with muzzle pointing away from you) and reinstalled left to right. You can try tapping them out. I use to use a MGW sight pusher. It was worth its weitht in gold, because the Beretta sights can be tough.

Yes, you can put it in a vise. Just make sure there is some wood blocks on both sides of the slide.
