Default HELP With 380 EZ Site Replacement!!!

Has anyone in the group changed the sites? The front is held on with a retaining clip that I cannot get off. The rear have a cover over the set screw that holds it in place on the top of the site. The cover looks fixed. From inside the slide the rear has a an allen head hole which I presume means you remove it internally rather than externally.

It is the wife's gun and I really do not want to damage/scratch trying to replace the sites so all help is appreciated.

Thanks!!!

Am I the only one in this group changing sites on the 380 EZ. I think not.

The front site was easy once I got the retaining clip removed. TruGlo supplied a small hex head screw, like those on Glock front sites so it was an easy change out.

The factory rear came off easy. It just fell out when I tipped the slide. Problem is the TruGlo is thicker and even after some filing of the base, it still would not go in more than 1/4". I have contacted them but have not had a reply.

Talked to TroGlo. They assured me the rear will fit. Cleaned the dovetail, put a little oil in it and used a nylon punch and got them installed. Wife is happy!!!
