Replacing Front Sight on Ruger SP101

    I ordered a Trijicon Night Sight for my Ruger SP101. I would like to replace it myself if possible. I see 2 very tiny holes on either side of the barrel, right underneath the front sight. I assume this is where I remove the sight and I assume I need a special tool to do this. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    There is a roll pin in the holes that you noticed. You will need a small punch to remove the roll pin!

    You might want to get a roll pin punch, they're specially made for this application. A regular punch will work but there's a chance that you'll defom the pin. Ask me how I know this. :rolleyes:
    If memory serves me right you'll have to drill a hole in the new sight too.

    The Trijicon replacement will have to be drilled....if you are not handy and/or do not have a drill press, you might not want to try this yourself. To quote Sisco, "Ask me how I know this". :D
