    Is there a list somewhere showing the direction the sights are supposed to be pushed to remove/install on different handguns?

    In general, most guns like the sight to be pushed out from left to rightand installed right to left. There are some that are opposite and even some sights that make no difference.

    Same holds true for most pins.

    Well, I was hoping there was an "official" list compiled somewhere. You see first we should define what right and left mean, not everybody seems to agree, to me it means the gun pointed at the target.
    Brownells has a little video on Glock sight installation. The direction they use is from left to right for install. Others on Youtube go the opposite direction.
    The Beretta installs from left to right.

    I called Glock, it doesn't matter on a Glock.

    +1. But Glock said it does not matter.
