I used a sight pusher on my Glock 34. The new sight was an extremely tight fit in the slide so I lubed it up with molybdenum disulfide which made it slip into the slide with relative ease. But it?s still stuck in place and will not move unless the pusher is used again.

A friend installed the sight on my CZ 75 SA. The sight did not go in easily and he ended up using a hammer and punch to get it in. As you can see, he missed a few times. I hate the way this looks and I'm wondering what my options for repairs are?

Is this a cerakote situation? File/sand/then coat?

CGW said they could help but I'd rather find a local shop if possible.

Appreciate any advice. Thanks!
CZ sometimes does paid repairs outside of warranty. Contact them and ask if they would do the work.

Start out with an apology for letting someone bugger up their gun.

If you qualify for warranty/custom/paid repair work, the service center will issue a Return Authorization number.

The Return Authorization number must appear on the package in BOLD lettering.
Include a detailed explanation of the issue along with your name, phone number, email (if applicable) and a physical address. (NO P.O. BOXES PLEASE)
-The firearm must be unloaded.
-The firearm must be properly packaged
-The firearm must be sent through a carrier that can provide a tracking number. CZ-USA will not be held responsible for packages lost or damaged in transit.
Maybe they'll front you a new sight (or ask if you can send along a new one for installation by non-Bubbas).

I think this was the hammer for installing some other sights on other guns.
