I recently put new Dawons on my XD-9. The rear just slides right in and is pinned with two set screws you locktite in. The front sight came right off with just 2 wacks of a plastic hammer. right to left when looking down at the slide. My slide is hardchromed, so maybe that helps. New sight just tapped right in after some filing on the base. green locktited in. Took me 30 minutes start to finish.
