I am contemplating replacing the sights on my CZ 75 with something else easier to see. The originals are “glo-in-the-dark” ones (not tritium but actually glow in the dark paint). The paint is a pale green which has terrible contrast.
I’ve watched a couple of youtube vids where the guy just drives them out with a brass drift punch and the installs the new one using the reverse process.
I had been looking at sight pusher tools but when I saw this, I was wondering if this is a viable way of installing the rear sight.
I’m pretty mechanically inclined (I have no problem rebuilding motorcycle engines) but had always thought that you needed a sight pusher tool to install the sights.
I’m only doing this once or twice so if I don’t need to spend a bunch of money on a specialized tool, that would be my preference. I already have the brass punch set.
