Anyone ever made one? I can't seem to find a narrow enough 3/16" driver, and didn't want to order one online, so I figured I would grind down a regular 3/16" with the dremel so it would fit. Although, I've never used the dremel for grinding, so this might be interesting. Anyone do this, or have suggestions for a hardware store that might carry narrow drivers? When I call them, they seem to not know what I'm talking about. Also, how about using a delrin punch for the rear sight, good plan?

I made one, but I have a lathe to turn down the diameter and square up the end.

I bought mine at a GUNSHOW from Lenny at the GLOCK STORE

Neat man and a good product.

The Lone Wolf one works really well. Spend the $19.95 and save yourself alot of headaches.

^^^Ditto that tool. Very handy, especially if you have more than one Glock.

dremel tool and a deep barrel socket work fine in a pinch.

I made one from a socket, I used a grinder to thin the walls so it would fit.

I thought it also came with ameriglo, which is what I bought. But maybe it only comes with the front sight. Well, I'll try grinding it first, and if I fail, I'll buy the tool.
