do a voodo dance around your xd and pray to the gods it will come out!

ok, seriously. take the slide apart and put it in the freezer for about an hour. then use a brass punc to push the sights out. some people claim you must push them out to the left away from the ejection port. i dont know how true that is but thats how i did it and it worked so i would reccommend that. it will be VERY dificult to do, just to warn ya.

The sights are metal also. What does putting the slide in the freezer accomplish?
shrinkage.


the slide will shrink slightly, opening up the grove.

the sights will shrink slightly, loosening them from the groove; therefore giving the sight more room to move.
