Problems with Mepro rear sight.

My Glocks are the only guns I will put nightsights on by myself. I've put on several pairs. Usually real easy to do. Bought some Mepro Tru Dots. Front sight piece of cake. Rear sight will only go in about 1/4 or the way and then won't budge. Anyone else ran into this problem?

Are you using a sight pusher? You might try starting it from the opposite side?? I have several sets of Meps on various Glocks but I have always just had the shop install them.

Good luck

I have, get a piece of glass or something really flat and a small sheet of 400 or finer sand paper. Flat sand the base of the sight just a little and try it. Repeat as many times as necessary.

PS: It should be a tight fit going in, you don't want it to jar loose.
