    xd sight removal

    I was wondering,im about to replace the stock sights on my xd 45 tactical and noticed what looks like a set screw underneath on the the inside of the slide for the front sight,is this a set screw that must be loosened before removal?,and if so does the rear sight have one too ,in order to remove dovetail sight? thanks for any help.

    I would not try and replace the sights on your own. You will most likely screw up your slide. Get a gunsmith who is familiar with XD's or better yet, send the gun to Springfield to install. Im going to send mine back to have the 3 dot trijicons replaced with the XS Big dots. Good luck.

    I have an older XD 9mm. My gunsmith said that my XD was the most difficult sights that he had ever replaced. Very tight fit.

    As I understand it, night sights don't tolerate pounding well......

    I vote, go with a pro......mike
