My favorite gunshop. The one with the best prices, inventory and cool guys who there pancaked my Warren Tactical rear. Is this normal? I know it is extremely hard to remove the stock sights on a new XDM. Forunately they didn't break the stock sights, but the new rear is pancaked. Kind of disappointing. Obviously it doesn't affect the sight picture and there is no damage to the slide but it looks pretty bad. I knew removal was tough, but iwhen installing the new ones I was hoping for perfection. (Like on my Glock.)

For those of you who have changed the stock sights, did you aesthetically damage your new sights upon installation?

Anybody? Help me out here. Is it normal to damage new sights upon installation? I hate the way it looks on my brand new XDM9. Even the front Dawson FO sight has a punch mark on the side, but not nearly as bad as the rear though.

Unless it is damaged to where it doesn't glow I wouldn't worry about. I'd just put some cold blue on and shoot it.

I have the $500+ Meprolight USIT and still managed to mark my Heinie sight on my Glock. It happens.

When I sent my XD45c to my local smith to replace the stock sights with TFO he broke the old ones and the new TFOs. I then sent it off to Gilbert's Gun Shop, and XDTalk.com sponsor, and they are perfect! I should have sent them there first. They do tons of XD sights and look like they should when they do them.

Warrens need to be fitted. those guys just bashed it in with a punch. Have them buy you a new one and install it yourself with a file.

Yeah that would definetly not be acceptable to me. Really destroyed the sides of those sights.

I withdraw my previous statement. They beat the $*@& out of that and need to fix it. Mine were little marks those are scars.

Agreed, don't attack the folks just the quality of the service- unacceptable.
