<!-- / icon and title --><!-- message --><!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start --><!-- END TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start -->The Glocks in my safe seem to be multiplying so I need to find a sight pusher. I have looked online at glockmeister and the one that ameriglo sells but it looks like It would work with only one sight that I want to try. I want to try ameriglo and truglo tfo. What sight pusher are you using or do you you recommend? Thanks for the help

P.S. I have black rears and tritium fronts on my 1911's but 60yr old eyes need all the help they can get.

Hey DRJ, I ordered this sight pusher from ebay

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?itemId=260863445615&index=2&nav=SEARCH&nid=15435565297

The guy shipped it super fast. It seems to be very heavy duty. I haven't. Used it to install any sights yet but I did use it to drift the mepro rear on my 17 and it worked like a charm. I ordered a set of ameriglo hack sights for my 26 and am going to use this tool to install them. Oh and I forgot to mention that the price was $50 shipped!!

The MGW tool for Glock sights also works on most of the Warren/Sevigny sights that I have used. Actually, on Glocks, I've used it regardless of what type of sight I had.
You can usually find it somewhere for about $85.
Good luck.

Thanks for the link. I want to try the ameriglo hacks with a black rear. I also want to try the truglo tfo. I looked at a pistol in the lgs that had the tfo sights and it was impressive. Just don't know about the durability. The ameriglo sights have sloped sides while the truglo has straight sides. Ameriglo lists a different pusher for each sight. I would like to find one that will work for both. Thanks again.

Our sight tool works with Glocks, and other pistols. Also it works without disassembling the pistol, and since it's modular it can be adapted to other models/brands.

Haven't encountered any specific sights that it won't move; some of the Kimbers are extremely tough to move.

That sight tool from e-bay in OP post is made by one of our own GT members (Dafish2011) and is a rugged tool.

You were the first customer on our new secure server.

Ours will do others than Glocks, all contact surfaces are covered with a heavy Teflon surface that does not mar the finish.

We donated one for fundraising about a year ago and will be again.

I ordered an SRC Sight Tool today (EBay being sold by manumfacturer). http://www.srvcanada.com/product_inf...roducts_id/179 (http://www.srvcanada.com/product_info.php/cPath/29/products_id/179)

On YouTube for the SRC Sight Tool. See exactly how it works. The videos sold me.

If you want to go low-tech, I've changed sights by bracing a slide in a vice with wood shims on the sides so the metal "jaws" of the vice don't scratch the finish, and get a nylon punch-pin (sold at a variety of gun sites) or a metal pin (if it's the plastic factory sights that you don't plan to keep) and just tap to where you need it.

Admittedly though, it's tough to change once you're at the range and you're shooting 6" to the right, and if you have a few guns to change a sight pusher might be in your best interest, but can be done with tools you may already have!

We've made a punch and 'hanger' set that work with the sight tool; it bolts on the side with no modification and comes with a 3/8 brass punch turned down to 3/16" * 1/2" and two hangers so it can be used on both sides.

It is great for loosening tight Factory sights.

The one ju993rnaut linked to is a flimsy junker compared to the MGW tool, which is the strongest and most rigid sight tool on the market. Don't waste your money on anything else, ESPECIALLY not the Glock tool - it's the worst piece of crap out there.
