    Was your rear sight a tight fit or did it slide in pretty easily? Did you have to remove any material? Mine is very tight.

    I have Warren Tactical sights on all my Glocks. The rears were real tight. I didn't remove any metal. I installed them myself with a MGW sight pusher.

    I installed them on two different 34's using the venerable vise and brass punch method.

    I had to relieve some material(rubbed it's flat bottom on a file a little) on one of the installations.

    "Was your rear sight a tight fit or..."

    Many sight mfg's. Maker their sights slightly oversize to allow them to be file-fit if needed, plus Warren's are made of good, hard steel, unlike some other popular sights.

    Problem is tolerance of the dovetail on OEM slide can & does vary for more than one reason so it's hard to come up with an optimum "size" that will fit in ALL or each individual dovetail. FWIW, mine were very snug but used oil on DT and sight along with a heavy sight pusher by B&J Machine. Many times have needed to fit the sights male DT with a sight file as can be had from Brownell's. never takes much as are working with an interference fit with that horrid "hourglass" OEM DT.

    Mine was very tights (Sevigny) and I had to remove a small amount of metal.
    Just two or three light strokes on some 440 sandpaper did the trick.

    WTS sights are very very tight. I recommend take a small amount of material off the bottom the the rear sight. Just enough so the black coating is gone. That helps them go in a lot easier.
