Default Installing Truglo TFO sights

Planning on installing a set of TruGlo TFO sights myself using a nylon tipped punch for the rear. (Dawson Precision has a good video on how to do it). Other sources say you should only use a sight press on these sights. Anyone installed a set using the punch method?

I have on a sig and the sights are still good. They're steel and I really had to knock on them to get them to move. Make sure you position the punch as close to the dovetail as possible to avoid bending/breaking the sight. I didn't have a brass punch, so I used a brass tubing fitting from home depot. After installation, I've used an aluminum arrow ferrule over a steel punch and it works well.
