Uberti 1862 Pocket Police ??
« on: May 05, 2021, 07:16:47 PM »
    I have 62 Police,and it shot about 14-15" high and 2" right at12 yards,I did little fileing on rear sight deepening V and taking more off side to move windage,my windage is now dead on,however I really dont want to file hammer notch any deeper,as it is I filed fairly deep and just barely put front sight into V of rear sight and still am 5-6" high at 12 yards,my question is.
       Are those front sights just pressed in? looking at pistol it looks like pressed in with a very slight round swage around brass post,if so what is best way to remove sight? do I need to carefully drill or can I just pull out with vice grips to make taller front sight post?

    I carry and hunt a lot with handguns,once I found load she likes I believe she'll make a dang handy easy to carry cap and ball squirrel slayer just need POA and POI dead on.

It's pressed in.

Yep. Grab it with some Vice-Grips, twist and pull.

If you want to keep the original front sight intact, remove it by using a press drill chuck (three jaws) and you will leave no dents on the sight.

Now that's a great idea!!

I dont want to hijack this thread, but are the Pietta front sight pressed in also? I've got four I'd like to remove and replace and the drill chuck method sounds like it would work. GF
