1911 Ultra Carry II sight removal

I just purchased night sights for my pistol and have read on this forum that Kimber sights are difficult to remove. My other 1911's sights were installed into the dovetail from the right side. Are the Kimber sights also installed from the right?
Thanks,
Larry

Welcome from Northeast, Pa. Don't know about the sights, my Kimber's came with Night sights.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Blackbug67. When looking at the gun from the back (like you are sighting it) you remove the sight from left to right and install the new one from right to left. Don't forget to remove the little set screw first.

Chuck43,
Thanks for your prompt reply verifying the installation procedure. I got the old sights out without a problem.
Regards,
Larry
