Holy heck, the thing is IN there! I'm used to doing this on Glocks, where all I need is a punch and hammer, but this is in a totally different league.
I've gotten advice that I need to disassemble (remove) the safety levers first, and that somehow will release pressure on the sight to the point I can easily tap it out. Can anyone confirm this?
I called around yesterday to a couple gunsmiths in my area, but to tell you the truth, they didn't sound knowledgable with this gun, and I wouldn't trust them to remove the old (stock) sight and install my new Novak sight properly.
Is there a trustworthy place you know of (possibly yourself even?) that I can send my slide and new sight for proper installation? Thanks so much.
