Has anyone had any issues with trying to remove the factory sights on an XD45? Factory suggests removing the slide and using a punch and hammer to remove. Gunsmith has broken 2 sight adjustment tools trying to remove them. Any suggestions short of a millimg machine?

Adjustment tools are for adjusting, if your gunsmith can't get them out you need to find a capable gunsmith who has the tools to hold the slide properly. We have had sights that had to be machined out, but most all of them can be removed with a steel punch if you can hold the slide properly.
