I called the gunsmith I plan to have install them and asked how they did their installations. He said they use a brass punch and a hammer. Would using that technique with these sights concern anyone? I trust the gunsmith, but thought he would us a sight press, and was a little surprised he doesn't.
nothing wrong with using a brass punch. When I had the regular TFXs installed on my FNS9-C, the shop did a terrible job. both sights were clearly way off center. I took a punch, wrapped it, and banged at the sights until they were both perfectly centered measuring with calipers. I wiped the impact marks off, and you couldn't even tell I the sights weren't stock.
