Hey,

I'm looking for a Beretta Sight removal tool (to remove/replace the rear sight) for use on my Beretta M9 or 92 (I think the same tool can be used for both???). I want to install the optional Beretta adjustable sight on an M9 ;)

 

Looking to either buy (for a reasonable price) or borrow the tool and return it. Check my status and or ask around and you will see a borrow option is safe with me.

 

Thanks, guys...Let me know what ya have!

Pretty sure you can drift it out using a brass punch.

Was considering it but I thought I'd check around to see if there was 1 available first...I especially would like the tool to push the new sight in without damaging it. The new rear sight is going to be an adjustable 1 with a few more parts than solid irons.

 

Thanks, though.

Ok, If nobody has 1 to loan, got any ideas on where to get a good used 1?...I see they cost about 130 new but I would just use it 1 time so I rather buy 1 used. I think a lot of "gunsmiths" in the area don't have specialty tools and would just drive it with a punch, ouch!

Don't let the drifting freak you out. Cover surrounding areas with 4-5 layers of painter's tape. Make sure to remove any set screw (none?) and go the correct direction for removal / install.

 

If they used adhesive / locker, heat it well with hot hair dryer, heat gun, soldering gun.

 

I don't even think this guy went brass. 

 

One big deal. Use a large enough hammer. For real.

i have a tool that has many different blocks for different slides styles and other methods of holding it. I use it all the time with great success. For the stubborn I wrap the slide in aluminum foil, attach in my mill with a brass rod in chuck and use the knee to push it out. I rarely have to use this method. Worst i have had to do was fix another smiths screw up were he beat the sight to were it swelled in place and i had to mill the center out to relieve pressure.
