    Sight pusher

    Does anyone have a sight pusher? I have some sights that need to be removed and they are dang near super glued on. Normal methods do not seem to work and I am thinking of investing in a sight pusher. Do they work? Are they worth having?

    You mean a sight pusher? For the rear drift sights?

    I have one that I think I paid about $100 for. I think a Smith around here would charge about $20 for the job. The logic of purchasing your own tool will depend upon how many times you need to push sights. Do the math. They do work well.

    Best bang for the buck is the MGW309S Sight Pusher designed for aftermarket steel sights. It's also light enough and compact so you can carry it to the range easily.

    Or you can use a vice and a punch. Free if you already have them.

    I bought one of the latest version off Ebay - JMT MkIII. Outstanding! Well built and easy to use. Absolutely the best bang for the buck.

    Even the most stuck on sights can be removed with a steel punch and a large hammer. I say save your money.

    I just got a MGW 309 for Glocks, what a Great tool. When I think of all the years using a hammer and drift especially with night sights and the risk of breaking the vials I feel foolish because I didn't want to spend the money. All "I" can say is spend the money.

    I have the MGW for angled side Glock sights. Local Smith charges $30.00 to swap sights. I had 4 of my own and one for my brother in law that needed night sights installed. So I bought it. Use it like the directions say and it works just fine. I took it to the range with me to fine tune the sights.

    Since then I've let friends come over to my shop and use it another 4 times installing night sights on their Glocks. I'm thinking of getting the straight sided sight version as well.

    I love good tools and the MGW sight pusher is one of those.

    Yes they are worth it IMHO! Yes, it can be done with a hammer, vise and punch but...it is had to get it to move the right amount! BTW, Brownells, Midway, and Glock sell them.
