ok i just recieved my firesights in the mail and finally got the front and rear screws out but the sights will not budge out of the dovetail setting, any tips i read the forums and they all dealt with the task of getting screws out.

any advice is greatly appreciated.

I couldn't find a brass punch, so actually cut a section out of a plastic hanger to make a plastic punch. Wasn't too difficult to tap them out with that.

Getting the firefights IN on the other hand was another story. Rear tapped in just fine, but the front was much too tight. I lightly sanded the bottom of the front sight until it could get about 1/3 of the way into the dovetail with finger pressure, then tapped the rest of the way in. Hopefully you won't need to resort to that!
