    Is there a specific tool for installing the OEM plastic front sights with the pin?

    Remove the pin fro=im the front sight with mini needle nose plyers.
    Install the front sight, install the pin. If needed, use a small punch to seat it.

    The new plastic sights screw in, if you have a chance to get them instead of the pin in

    Well, I've got a few sets of the pin-in version. I'll stop at Home Depot tonight and find a pair of mini needle nose pliers. Thanks!

    Why would you want to? I'm not breaking your stones I'm just curious. Most people rip them off first chance they can for something more durable.

    I thought it would be obvious, but I'd like to install some

    I bought the smallest set of needle nose of pliers I could find at Home Depot and it looks they might *barely* work
