I was NOT planning on removing the pin. I was only wondering how it comes out. I also had thought of trying a lighter spring( not sure why the spring is so stiff for the function it is to perform). I also wanted to be able to clean or polish the breech face with out the pin sticking out. If the rear sight must be removed I won't remove the pin . I don't want to start to loosen the dove tail up by donig R&R on the rear sight.celsee said:I would not be to quick to leave a open channel from the chamber back to your eyes! I simply used a dremel to grind the tip off the indicator.
The reason I wanted it gone was the dimple it was leaving on the rim did not seem good from a reloading standpoint.
If one just decides there is ALWAYS a round chambered, from a safety aspect, you do not need the indicator. (from a defensive aspect, please always check to see if a round IS chambered! :wink: )
Hi Wulf, I feel like a *** in a whore house now since I sold my Steyr. I sold it to my partner at work so I at least get to see it every day.Wulf said:Hiya armored
Good tip, Bro. Thanx for postin' it.
My S9's rear sight is visibly offset to the right. I noticed this when I took it out and found it shooting consistently about 2"-3" to the left at 15yds. Since the gun was purchased used I didn't find it surprising that the sight may have been adjusted to someone else's shooting style or idiosyncracies.armored said:Removing the rear sight should not be a big deal. Just mark each side with a pencil,tap the sight to the left to remove. I use a aluminum punch that came with a Dawson front sight(for a Sig). When you re-install the sight make sure you have it in the dovetail then tap back in from left to right. I always clean the bottom of the sight and dovetail with carb cleaner and the put a drop of lok-tite on so it stays put.
