I used heat, cold, heat and cold, oil... hammered left, hammered right... everything short of an arbor press. I finally gave up after causing some not insignificant injuries to a few fingers on my left hand. I dremeled it in half to get it out. This was on two separate guns... a RAP9 and RAP9c
Not an easy thing to do and the original sight is mostly trashed when it does come out but yes it will drift out. I really like the XS big dot system on my RAP they are easy to track.

I have a few questions if I may:
(1). The mag release is very stiff to press and gritty when pressed. Is this due to just being out of box or is this built in so as to prevent premature mag release?
I've also use a RAP in 9mm and the Mag release is smooth and easy to release. It has been like that from the first day, it just sounds like you have one that needs some "breaking in". I have four magazines that I run thru at the range and each and every one of them seat easily and ejects with out issue. Does this issue present itself with all of your magazines or more so with one than others?

The mags release fine it was just that the mag release button is hard to push but is getting better with use.

Understood but a magazine with "issues" can feel like a sticky Mag Release issue. My Glock21 didn't like a couple of "new" magazines from the beginning but after cycling them a number of times they began to behave properly.

I'm glad to hear yours is getting better with use.

Let us know how it works out. It might be the first pictures of an RAP with a red dot on the internet.

It looks like you can seat the MRDS pretty low on the RAP which is nice. Here are a couple of pics of the RAPc from Galloway:

R L Withrow will become famous soon enough
That slide on the gun in the picture has been milled pretty deep for that red dot!

Just like on a XD-S or other such pistol with ambi mags buttons..
a person had to learn to push in on a full mag to get it to drop easier.

My RAP C is getting better though.
