Hi all, I have a Springfield TRP that came with fixed night sights. After shooting a P16 Limited, Iíve come to really like the flat rear sight blade and FO front sight and I wanted to set up my TRP the same way. Problem is, I canít seem to get the existing sights loose. Iíve removed the set screw in the rear sight, put it in my vise and tried drifting it out left to right, but it wonít budge. My brass punch is starting to mushroom, so I donít think Iím not hitting it hard enough. The font sight is another matter. I can see thereís a roll pin thatís holding it in place, but I donít have a punch small enough to remove it. That will be tonightís project but Iíd love some advice on what to do about the stuck rear sight.

Drift out right to left.

For some reason I thought it was the other way. I'll try that tonight.

Use the right size roll-pin punch for the front sight. A little Tri-Flow or similar can help w/ removing both - they can be snug. Sight pushers are great, but I think too much $ unless you use fairly routinely.
