Does anyone know any secret tricks to removing an XD rear sight? One of my students brought in an XD-40 sub compact and we couldn't get that sucker out! We tried everything and couldn't budge it. I have a 6 inch milling vise that I've made into a giant sight pusher by attached a large screw to the top and that wouldn't budge it.

I finally got it out. I warmed it up, doused it with Kroil and let it sit for awhile then I put it back into the mill vise sight pusher and got it out. Even after I got it to move, it didn't just break loose. I had to use a lot of force until it was halfway out of the dovetail and then it finally moved easier.

Kimber sights are a piece of cake compared to this!

If I were SA, I think that I would try to find something other than a tight sight to one up Kimber.

I've done a few now and they are in there for sure. Someone told me they were installed with some sort of press. KACHUNK!!

This other thread seemed more relevant so I posted it there:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2110&p=21736#p21736

Part of the problem with the XD was the shape of the sides of the slide. The sides of the slide are angled and there is only a narrow section near the bottom where the sides are parallel. When I held it in a vise, the slide wanted to rotate when I put pressure on the side of the slide.
