Excellent Upgrade August 19, 2015
Reviewer: Christopher Denczek from Rockledge, FL United States  
Old sight and bushing came of off with just a little extra heat applied.  My only issue came when others started crowding my space and my adjustment tool walked off along with the retaining spring for rear sight.  Got the sights zeroed at 25yds but my tool disappeared and I need the adjustment spring. Can't make any more adjustments to elevation/windage.  Do you sell the windage tool for the rear sight, as I can use my AR tool for the front sight.  Thanks.  I live in Rockledge and thought about just driving by to see if it could be fixed.

Wow!! August 8, 2015
Reviewer: Mike from Buffalo, NY United States  
The quality and workmanship stand above anything I have purchased in a long time.  The sight is perfection!! It mounts easily and comes with its own adjustment tool.  For those hesitant removing the stock sight - DON'T BE!!  Watch some youtube videos as a reference, it really is a simple job.  3 steps:
1.  Using a dremel make one slice through the plastic sight base to the bushing.  Use a screwdriver or chisel to pry it off.
2.  Heat bushing until it can be rotated with a plyers, channel lock or visegrip.
3.  Heat once more and grab the bushing from the front and twist while pulling and it comes right off.  Wipe the adhesive off immediately and let the barrel cool down.

Sights are great if you can get the bushing off. October 20, 2014
Reviewer: John Eickhoff from Saint Louis, MO United States  
The videos are most likely staged and reshot after the bushing is already removed.

2 guns.

I cut the plastic sight off with a Dremel (easy).

Gun 1:  Using the same heat gun in the video I could get  the bushing to rote some but never could get it to move forward.   Using 2 heat guns I could use a hammer and punch to tap the bushing forward.   This took hours of heating and tapping.

Gun 2: No matter how much heat the bushing would never move no matter how long I heated it.   I had to cut it off using a Dremel/metal blade.  I practiced on the bushing from gun 1. I then then carefully cut the 1 on gun 2 to a depth of ~3/4 of the bushing.  Using a screw driver in the cut I then popped the bushing off.  Even with practice I put about a 1/4" scratch in the barrel where I went to deep.  This process took 5 mins and no heat.    I would not recommend as you will at a minimum scratch your barrel.  Practice was a must.

The Red Lion replacement process was painful but worth it.

buy this! June 23, 2014
Reviewer: Santa from IN, United States  
I've seen some complaints on message boards about these sights being "bulky" or odd looking, but honestly when you have it installed and it's right there in front of you, it looks great.  This sight is far, far superior to the factory sight.  I used a heat gun and moved around the factory sight for a few minutes, grabbed it with a pair of channel locks and rocked it back and forth until it came off, shim and all.  This piece is 110% quality and it was easy to install.  Yeah the price is a bit salty but it's worth every penny.  RLP needs to make a rear sight now....

Perfect April 5, 2014
Reviewer: Samuel Grove from Spokane Valley, WA United States  
Mounted this front sight and a Tandemkross rear sight and only had to make a one click adjustment up on the front sight at 25 yards. FYI  use a square to help aline the front sight while aiming and resting the rifle on a hard FLAT counter top. Take your time until it looks right. Doing this I was within an inch of bulls-eye on my first shot!
