I am awaiting delivery on a "new to me" Wilson Classic. With the black finish on the slide, are there any special concerns about pushing the front sight off for a night sight replacement?

Just a caveat to "pad" the pusher with a softer material. I used copper and it left a "wash" from the process ... suggest using plastic or nylon.

Thanks

I may send the slide to Wilson. The two gunsmiths I have asked so far, have expressed reluctance to do the job. They both expressed concern that they might hurt the Armor Tuff finish. I'm surprised. Although, I don't want to try to bang on the slide with a punch either.
