A sight pusher tool keeps you from pounding on your “iron” sights and possibly breaking them, plus lets you more precisely adjust them than when whacking on them with a punch and hammer. If you wish to remove the sight altogether, as when installing tritium dot “night sights”, or a reflex or holographic type in the rear sight dovetail, a sight pusher tool is by far the best way to go.
The only problem is, some of these tools can cost as much as the sights you want to install. One way to go about it is to buy your new sight from a local shop and have then do the installation, but if you have multiple pistols and like to change the sights around, you might – as I did – wish to have your own “sight pusher”
The Sight Master is very reasonably priced as these tools go, and heavy duty enough to get the job done – over and over again. You can order through Amazon (like the link below) or from the Glock Store (www.glockstore.com)
The part of the tool that actually moves and pressures the sight has a beveled edge that can be reversed by turning the tool over, so that it matches the angle of the edge of the sight. With Glock plastic sights, a tool like this is almost a given for moving or removing a sight without damaging it.
