Just had a local guy in Carthage with a press tell me he can't get my factory sights off a M&P .45 Shield and basically, he's worried about breaking something. Does anyone know someone who might can take the factory sights off and put some night sights on? I'm in central MS but can drive a few hours if necessary. Thanks.
I know on those there is a spring right under the rear sight that is easily damaged. Watch a video on YouTube it can be done with common hand tools but you have to understand how the rear sight interacts with the spring assembly underneath.
Is the 45 shield different than the 9? I had to put my slide in the freezer over night and the sight swap was quite easy.
