    Can't find J frame sight install info

    I thought I saw a thread on installing the XS sights on a J frame somewhere but I can't find it. Specifically I'm looking for the size of the punch and drill bit I need? I appreciate any help.

    According to the S&W website, you need a #54 drill bit, couldn't find anything about the punch.

    A number 54 drill is .0550 or 13/64 the next smaller punch would be a 3/16 which is .0400.
