    Are they worth it?

    Is there a cheaper option to do precise sight adjustment?

    Thumbs up

    MGW sight pushers are great for after market sights and Night Sights.

    Tritium sights have "Lamps" that contain Hydrogen 3 and phosphorus (radioactive gas) with a crystal lens. Beating on them with a punch can cause them to leak.

    After installation, when you go to the range, you'll need a pusher to adjust them for sight in (unless you have a padded vise handy). Also, you'll make lots of new friends because everyone will want you to adjust theirs, too!

    There's a guy who sells a sight press in the classified at the S&W forum. Looks well thought out, has some pretty good reviews, and costs $60 which includes shipping. Lets see if I get this link right Smith & Wesson Forum Yep, thats it.

    I'm actually looking for a universal pusher. I do have night sights on all my guns so it sounds like I should use the tool. Thanks.

    This is what I use for all my pistols. Bought it a while back for $50 and it has been worth every penny.
