View Full Version : installing rear sights on range officer
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.
i mean as far as getting the old sight out? is there something else to do besides pushing it out?
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.
yea i have it hooked up to the vice now and i loosened the set screws but this thing is not budging i'm neverous to hit it harder
It could have LockTite on it.....may need a bit of heat.
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:
I'll do some digging,.........I may have notes some where.
