I'd like to replace the fixed rear sight on my Beretta 92FS Inox with an adjustable one from Beretta. The sights are dove-tailed. Do I just put the gun in a vice, tap the old one out and tap the new one in? Can I remove and install from either side? What tool should I use to avoid damaging the black finish on the sights? Thanks!

Use a punch and tap it out, work slow. The new one may need a little sanding to fit.

pad your vice.

Thanks, Angel. I assume a steel punch would be a bad idea. Brass? Something softer?

Yes Brass is the way to go and only use needed force getting it out. When I did mine it shot a crossed the room. The newer one is the hard part. Just take your time.

the industry standard in the USA for dovetailed sights is to remove them to the right as you sight down the barrel and then, of course put them back in from right to left. I cannot verify this for the Beretta but suggest you go in this direction first.
