WTK: Chinese Type 54 Tokarev Pistol Rear Sight Replacement
Question for the board experts.
The Chinese Type 54 Tokarev that I am working on for a buddy is shooting 7 inches high at 25 yards.
He was able to obtain a lower rear sight (Polish manufacture) and my question is on removing the existing rear sight and installing the replacement rear sight.
Looks like the rear sight is in a standard dove tail.
Is there a direction for removal? Removal from left to right or right to left?
I plan to secure the slide in a padded vise and tap/hit the rear sight with a brass punch/hammer.
Any pointers that anyone can offer would be appreciated.
Looking down the slide from rear sight to muzzle, remove by tapping left to right.
Thanks for the info.
