Is it a staked front site or the Novak cut?

The Hillwig looks like what I'm looking for. I'm ordering it soon. I'm waiting for Remington to mail me a fiber optic front sight for my R1 Enhanced.

Good deal! I have always placed my slide in my vise with the Delron pads and used a brass drift punch.
I did see that method on YouTube. Doesn't look difficult and way more economical.

Its gotten to be that 'economical' is a key word, to me anyway. I wish I had started being that way when I was a lot younger
Thanks for the excellent recommendation!

I bought the less expensive of the two Hiilwig pushers from the Glock Store. It works great, even if the sight is really jammed in. See my post: http://www.springfieldforum.com/f36/bull-barrel-1911-a-772/#8
