For Reference: As you're sighting down the barrel, the sight would come out to your right. Installation is to the left. The cut out on the barrel is not parrallel, it's a trapazoid. It's wider on the right side.

I just did it last Saturday. Consistent with what the other poster said, the sight on my H-001 came out -- on the side where the rounds eject, i.e. the right side as you are sighting down the barrel. You insert the new sight on that side and push in to the left.

I found that a nylon mallet was essential. Come to think of it I also used a brass mallet. No scuffs or dings resulted.

Very easy to remember.

It goes right on but may get left out.

Not that easy to remember. You just stated it exactly backwards! It goes in to the left and out to the right.

Exactly. I corrected this same aphorism in another post. It is WRONG!

So you are putting the sight in on the right side tapping it in. Its going right in. Right to left.

So you are taking the sight out tapping it from the left to the right. Its being left out.

Its the direction you tap the sight!

Correct the dovetail is wider on the right side of the barrel.

Interpret however you wish.

A very simple thing to do is getting made a lot more complicated.

All in the interpretation I'd say.

Yes, the interepretation is getting quite complicated. It was simple but not anymore. Your turn...take the last word. I'm done.

good gawd, if there's anything that's been absolutely Rube Goldberg'd to death it's this whole "which way does the rear sight tap out" topic. I think I even read a "how to" article about it in a recent issue of Rocket Science Journal

Man alive, talk about getting offended and thinking of having ones toes steped on.
