Just got my harrison T2 rear night sights for my range officer. Can anyone point me into the right direction on how to install these or do you need a gunsmith to do it. I just installed sights on my glock and it was a piece of cake. thanks for your help.

Remove from left to right. Install from right to left, with muzzle facing away.
Do you have a sight press? Wight may be tight & need fitted.

i dont have a sight press can i use a no marr punch? I'm confused because the harrisons have set screws but i dont see any on my stock adjustable sights?

The last 10-8 I installed in a Springfield, I had to file the sight
a bit. I removed material until I could get the sight in 1/3 of the
way by hand. Then I used a delron drift to position the sight.

Sorry,........missed that.

A sight pusher or a drift. Do you have access to a bench mounted vice?
They help, A LOT! I use leather or cover the slide sides with
8-10 layers of masking tape, then place small strips of wood
scrap between the slide and vice jaws.

I got it I had to really hit it. Had to file down the new sights quite a bit n then just ended up drifting it in. I wish someone had posted instructions on how to do it step by step cuz overall its an easy thing to do. Idk y u would pay someone to do it. Perhaps I shall write up instructions:embarassed:
