Default CZ 75 BD rear sight removal help

So I'm installing some TFX Pros front went in fine without a problem, but the rear one is giving me trouble. I have it in my sight pushers and don't want to force it but it is really tight. I'm pushing it out right to left because it looks like it was installed left to right. I just want to make sure I just need to use some elbow grease and not hurt the slide. There is no set screw, but this is the hardest rear sight I've ever tried to push.

Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks

I don't think direction matters on a CZ, but I have always gone right to left out of habit. CZs are notoriously tough to move, even with a pusher.

This gives me confidence. I've never had a rear sight this tight before! So elbow grease it is.

Yup, had to crank that sucker hard! Interestingly the frame has some raised "bumps" I guess they do that to anchor instead of a set screw on the sight.
