XDm 5.25 rear sight pin broke


Recommended Posts

The pin in the front of the rear sight broke. This is a small pin with a small indent. Springfield sent a new pin but it's not going in as expected. (Great customer service by the way.)

This pin has the small indent i mentioned so I am thinking that is part of the problem. Does anyone know a trick or procedure to get this new pin in?

You said the pin broke, but did you get it out? If not that may be whats keeping you from getting the new one in.

Just take the replacement pin with you and get the appropriate size roll pin. By their design they work much better.

Guys sorry to dredge this back up but I am going back to Production from Carry Optics sooooooo i need to put the factory sight pin back in.  Has anyone figured this out yet (as in tricks or anything to make it easier.  Scott, when you said you used a 5/64 roll pin, did you just get one and hammer it in with a punch.  Does the sight hold a zero well like this.   Thanks and sorry for the ignorace.
