Hi,
I want to replace the front sight of my Tarus PT1911 by an optic fiber sight, how to disassemble it, there is a hex but I cannot find a small enough key to unscrew, what key should be?

Thanks to help me.

Hi there!

I'm late to this but a couple of suggestions if you haven't already changed them out.

1. Make sure you use a high quality wrench so the fit is proper and gently tap the wrench into the set screw to ensure a good seating.

2. Use heat (I used a hair dryer) on the set screw to loosen the loctite from the factory.

3. Take your time. These screws strip out very easily. I know from personal experience. :(
