Looking to purchase a sight tool and am looking for input from those of you that have / use them.

I am very anal about my tools, I am a sucker for a well built solid tool but hate gimmicks.

I have seen videos of the Uni-Tool which seems to be a "fit all" tool and am not sure of its true quality.

Have seen a few dedicated glock tools but in the videos they seem to not set square on the slides and ride funny on the sights themselves (maybe due to poor setup??)

I am looking for a first rate tool (dedicated glock or universal as long as it works well and doesnt damage slides, etc)

Recommendations??

For Glock standard-style and comparable aftermarket sloped-side sights (Ameriglo, Trijicon, Meprolight) sights, I recommend the MGW Glock rear sight pusher, available from Ameriglo and other sources.

Unless I mis-read the info on this one it only works on polymer sights and I need to do both (steel / polymer). Thanks

This one looks promising, heavy duty pusher screw and works on polymer / steel both and the price is right.

Thanks

I have one and it works fine on both Polymer and steel.

I own one of the new-style Glock factory sight pushers. It worked on steel rear sights...once! The second time I used it, the polymer bolsters (which contact the rear sight) crumpled! The tool is now useless. The design is elegant but deeply flawed.

And you are welcome! :wavey:

Each to his own I guess. I have tried the MGW tool but still prefer the factory Glock tool.

A wooden dowel rod and a hammer works great--take it slow.

I use the MGW. I wish it had graduation marks to reference amount of travel

You can measure the movement and side to side spacing (to center) with a micrometer.

I use both MGW, the one with tall square sides and the regular sloped side. They work great.

The BEST sight tool I've ever used is made by Meprolight. It's NOT cheap, the basic tool is about $500.00 & the adapter for dovetailed front sights such as a Kimber is another 60 bucks, but it will work on any pistol except a Desert Eagle.
It's made of aluminum billet & machined steel & designed to be bolted to a bench, not a silly hand held toy !
The Glock tool & the MGW just don't compare;They're not even in the same class !
Get it from Brownell's.

I use a pair of needle nose form my rear sights, not fast but it works and was only about a buck.

If I did sights on non-Glock pistols, I might consider the pricey Meprolight tool. I don't, and the $350 or so I saved by going with MGW will buy a lot of powder, primers and bullets! :cool:

For myself, I need the ability to install sights on numerous pistols. This is what PAID for the expensive Meprolight tool (HA) !

You charged folks for installing sights on their pistols? :shocked:

While I am a kind & generous individual, SOMETHING has to pay for my powder & boolitz !
