Re: correct direction for installing dovetail sights
The text book is right to left. Some guns it does not matter. Colt 1911 for instance does not nor does Kimber or STI. Anything Novak cut does not matter either. If its made by Sig, Springfield XD, Glock Rears, Kahr, SW M&P and some of the Ruger P series, the sights always push out to the left (if your facing the back of the gun) and install left to right. If you try it any other way, you'll break your sight or your pusher.
