Default Sig Romeo 1 on Colt Commander 1911 Help, anyone?

I am looking for help to replace the rear sight of my Colt Commander 4.25 inch with a Sig Romeo 1 Red Dot sight.

I bought the adapter mount for Romeo to go on traditional 1911.

Looking for info on how 2 remove the rear sight using what kind of sight tool end what else to watch out for

Thanks

While i don't have one, i did come across this youtube video which i hope helps. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4NL1QcFNWA)
in this video the sight is mounted on a Hudson H9 which uses a dovetail sight mount very similar to what most would find on a 1911 with adjustable sights.

If so, it looks like you just remove/push out your old sight....i've always use a non marring punch with great success but some prefer a formal sight pusher. To do so i put a little piece of tape just below the slot as insurance. I tap the bottom edge of the sight with the non marring punch. Dave Dawson has a great video to show this: https://video.search.yahoo.com/yhs/s...1&action=click

Then it looks like you replace the sight using the appropriate sized romeo dovetail adapter, again using a non marring punch or sight pusher....

You would then attach with the appropriate length screws.

Default RED DOT SIGHT ON 1911

Thank you mtenenhaus. I definitely will check that out. Once I got the mount adapter, ordered from Midway, will try it on and update this thread.

Default Romeo red dot on 1911

Today, I worked on the 1911 rear sight tb replaced by romeo 1.

Attached are a few pics.

I have fabricated a couple of oak wood bars to help hold the 1911 slide in a vise. They are essential in keeping the finish of the slide intact. Punch and hammer are common tools I have. I did not pay for a sight pusher.

This full size slide is on a 1911 frame that is already carrying a green laser sight. It will be easier for me on the Commander 1911 once the adapter gets to me.

Remember.. Sight is removed in the same direction brass is ejected. The new sight is installed the opposite way.. you may need to sand the bottom of the new sight slightly so that you do not roll a burr out while inserting your new sight
