Factory Night Sight Installation

I need some advice from the forum.
I have a set of very bright Walther Night sights I'd like to install on my Navy Q...the front is simple...screwdriver and blue loctite.

It is the rear that troubles me. I know they are removed from the left and the new set installed from that direction but past that I'm at sea (appropriate with a Navy Q).

There seems to be nothing online that will give me guidance.

Would clamping the slide between wooden blocks and tapping out the sight with a wooden dowel or nylon punch work and reinstalling the new sight the same way?

I know S&W ruined a bunch of FE slides doing this and just hope some of you have done this install.

I've seen Glock Tru Dot rear sights done this way and it looks to be similar, but would like the help of those with some experience.

No tapping is needed. There is a screw back right of sight. Unscrew. Depress plunger and slide sight out opposite side with finger pressure. Take old sight. Totally remove screw. Screw Into new sight and slide back on then tighten screw

Sorry it is not that type of sight. No screw, plunger or spring involved here...those are easy.

These sights are exactly like the sights installed on the Walther PPQ First Edition. It has the toothed roll pin (a compression roll pin).

I'm in the same boat with a set of Meps 18802. I'd really like to see a video but it would also help to have very detailed explanation of getting that rear started.

I'm going to try with a P500 sight pusher...if I don't like the way it goes, I guess I pack everything off to Earl.

Unless folks here have a better suggestion.

Installed my trijcon sights finally 😁👍 removed the old metal sight by clamping in a vice with plastic jaws, tapped it out with a punch.

I believe there is a special tool used to compress the claw spring for install. If I recall a member here has one and may install them for you if you ask nicely and they are still around. Barring that you may want to ask Walther.

I will see if I can find the old thread and post here.
