Bought one of these last week and it arrived today. I have to say this thing is a beast and is definitely a "buy once-cry once" tool. I have an MGW pusher for my Glocks, but the S&W, HK, and Walthers have trapezoidal shape slides and this tool was built to accommodate multiple shapes (even parallel sided slides).

I installed a set of Truglo Tritium sights on one of my S&W M&P 2.0 pistols today and the front sight was stupidly tight. So much so, that it sounded like a .22 going off when it broke free. There was no way that I could have used a punch to change it. If you are in the market for one, you cannot go wrong with this one:

I looked at that one, but it is not designed in proper way for the S&W. My next door neighbor bought one of those to change the sights on his S&W Shield 2.0 and broke the OEM front sight without it ever budging. You have to push the sight at the base (not the blade) and that tool will not do it. It likely works just fine on most slides/sights, but if you have very tight front sight and/or non-parallel slide, it will not work well at all.

I actually like yours better than the one I’ve got. It allows a direct line for the pressure on the sight, my Wheeler, which worked fine doing the sights on an H&K recently, has a bit of difference in the position of the screw/force, and the axis on which the sight is pushed, so, some twisting of the pusher components can result if you don’t set it up properly. The Wheeler is well made, and works well, but yours is cheaper and simpler.

LOL - would have been "site" instead of "sight". Good one though!

The scenario you describe is what caused my next door neighbor's tool to break his from sight (luckily it is was the OEM and not the night sights he wanted to install--had it happened vice-versa, he would have been out the cost of a set of sights). All of my HK's have factory night nights, but my Walter P99AS pistols do not and they have trapezoidal shaped slides, so this tool works very well for that application. I will post how it worked on them soon.

2015_PSD : Now , that sight pusher looks awesome !! … Will it work well on Glocks as well OR do you recommend the MGW sight pusher you mentioned instead ?

It will work on all of them; he has different accessories that can be added for Glock, S&W, and 1911 specific applications. I do like the MGW stuff, but they are typically per model, so if you have not bought one it may make sense to grab the one that I just bought because it is expandable past a single brand of pistol. MGW's S&W sight pusher was pulled from the market because it would either break the front sight or break the pusher part of the tool.

This one is seriously well made--powder coated steel that is 2" wide x 3.5" square with 3/8" thick walls.When I snugged up the counterforce screws, the slide was rock solid and locked into place. It did not budge when I pushed the front sight.

That's a darn nice sight pusher! But, why isn't there some kind of plastic on the sight pusher itself to keep the sight from getting marred?

I was initially concerned about that, but the metal "bar" on the end of the jackscrew does not turn so it cannot mark the sight. Mine came out perfectly.
