Alright, giving the NCStar tool a try. Got it from Optics Planet for $62 shipped (10% code and I had $3 in OP Bucks). Now we need to get the Night Fision group buy in gear

I used the Sylvan standard sight pusher and got nowhere...Tried my Wheeler sight pusher on @Smitty504 's Elite SC and couldn't budge them. He has a set of Night Fision he wants to put on it, but so far no luck.

I told him to soak them for awhile and we'd probably have better luck. First time my Wheeler wouldn't budge a sight. But, my guns I also persuade them if need be with a punch. I don't do that to other peoples guns. If it was mine, I'm sure I would of got them out one way or another.

I've used it on a half dozen different guns, and loaned it out to friends a couple times. I've done 2 guns that gave me a little trouble doing a tristar and a surplus cz75, had to clamp the tool down to get enough leverage to break those rears loose, everything else has been a breeze.TL1000RSquid wrote: ↑Mon Jul 06, 2020 4:41 pm My NCStar hasnt failed me yet, I'd say maybe try a little liquid wrench but not sure if it would be to abrasive on the delicate canik slide finishes.
I know the NCStar Sight Pusher got some bad press on this forum early on and I get it. After all, NCStar has made some real garbage in a variety of products over the years. That said, having used mine (It’s the one that does both front and rear) on approx. a dozen different firearms, I’ve had zero problems removing and installing new sights. I always make sure to lube the press when I use it.

I was thinking of throwing an Ameriglo orange M&P sight up front. Thoughts? Anyone had success just replacing front?I've heard of some having success. I tried replacing just the front on my Elite with a Night Fision, but it was shooting low. I've read others though have replaced just the front sight and were happy with it.
Has anyone had a tp9sf elite slide milled for a ho[…]
