I picked up a Brazos micro dot for the front on my trojan but I CANNOT get the blade out. I worked for a while with a nylon punch but to no avail, Im I stuck taking this thing to a gunsmith? aroud here they are all a month or more behind. Also, it seems like the new sight will not index in the dovetail, do you need to relive a little metal on these? Thanks!

I vote steel punch and bigger hammer. If the slide isn't rock solid that'll absorb some of the blow. It's more difficult if you're trying to save the sight, I wasn't.

As for installing, you might need to remove metal. If it goes about 1/3 of the way in you're good, hammer it home. If it doesn't file carefully on one edge of the dovetail, the sight not the slide. The key is to try it often during the process so as to avoid an embarrassing phone call to Brazos.

Mount the slide solid in a vice using a piece of leather belt to keep from maring the slide knock it out left to right. use a solid metal punch unless you want to save the sight. You will need to file on the new sight to get it to fit. A little time spent here is well worth it.

New sight should tap in with just a snug fit, a drop of locktite if it just a little to loose.

Dawson has a great install video on their site. They send a aluminim punch with their sights that works great.
