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.

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
