    you should be able to just tap the old one out-right to left if my brain is working correctly. make a mental note of where it is centered, and slide the new one in to the same position. probably use a light hammer and a brass or nylon puch for drifting the sight-could use a steel punch if your very gentle. if the new sight is oversize in the base you may need to file it to fit. if its loose you may need to stake it in place once you get it centered(dont laugh, ive seen original swedes with the sights staked).
