    My experience with the sight pushers from www.sightpusher.com

    I've been wanting to install Trijicon HD sights on a few handguns, glock and a S&W M&P. I did a lot of research on them and was about to purchase the B&J Machine P500 sight pusher. $250 for a sight pusher is a lot, but I figured over the span of the rest of my life I would get my moneys worth.

    Then I happened upon the Universal Sight Pusher. What I liked the most was its simple construction. Much fewer parts to fail. And it looked like it was built very sturdy (I had read of people bending the P500).

    I ended up ordering the full kit for $79.95.

    It is pretty simple to use. I did put masking tape on the points of contact to protect the finish on my slide. After pushing out the old rear sight, I had to tap the new sight in slightly with a nylon head hammer, If I hadn't done that I wouldn't have had clearance to put the partially inserted sight and slide into the pusher.

    The only thing I wish I had was a bench vise (I'm not an my shop so don't have my usual access to tools). I had to put gloves on to hold the sight pusher so I could turn the bolt. A bench vise would have made this quick and easy.

    So, in short, I really liked the tool, I don't think I can break it. The next time I use it I will throw a bit of grease on the threads of the bolts that pushes the sight and will mount it in a bench vise. I do like that I can take this thing to the range and do a quick adjustment if I need to. I've satisfied with the product and would recommend it.

    Thanks,
    Clay

    Appears simple enough. Thanks for the post.

    I used a large pair of channel locks.
