I cannot get my sight plate to come off.
Screws came out fine.
There is no room between plate and slide to fit a blade.
I tried wiggling the plate back and forth with needle nose pliers using the sides of the screw recess area (not the thread holes) but no luck.
Also tried a nylon punch to move it, again using screw recess area but no luck.
Really want to get my Romeo X mounted.
You might try a shot of freeze spray on the plate, then try to move it. Maybe heat up the slide a bit first, then spray the plate.*
* Disclaimer - I've never tried this technique on a slide. We use freeze spray at work to diagnose electronic circuits. It makes things very cold for a short time.

Well, I shot two matches with the gun doing 200+ rounds hoping the plate would loosen but no go.
Had to send it back to Sig.
I guess they had trouble too since they sent a replacement optic's plate to replace the damaged one.
Now to mount the Romeo X
