I have never seen that, did you have the slide high enough so the sight wouldn't hit the block when removing it.

I don't even know how that can happen. It doesn't look like a glock could do damage like that.

Yea, I made sure of it because I didn't want to mess up my gun. I even had my slide wedged with cloth on both sides.

Also.. I don't think that was the side that I had the sight pushed. I'm pretty sure I had the tightening screw on the right side because I used a socket wrench to move the sight pusher. It was definitely on the side where it had the nut without the bolt protruding (otherwise I wouldn't have been able to use the socket wrench).

Would it be possible for you to send me a picture of the slide in the tool just like how you used it.

I would really like to figure out how this happened.

Here are the pics:

Close up


and here is a pic of how I had it setup. I had to do the adjustments on the right side because all I had available was a socket wrench (couldn't find my normal wrenches) and the other end went into the socket wrench too far in for it to effectively tighten.



Note: I don't notice any damage on the sight blade at all, so that won't be necessary. All the damage is on the 3 blocks.

Ah, you don't have the slide in high enough and it is to far forward.

In the future have the blade at the dovetail of the sight just above the bottom of the dovetail cut in the slide.

It will also be easier to push out that way.

You can see the difference in my picture in post #1. it will also keep your sight from getting marred.

I will send out some new blocks tomorrow.

Thanks for the input. Will do and thanks for covering it, great service and product! Will definitely recommend others looking for a sight tool.

Dafish,

I'd like to get one to replace the sight on my springfield GI, but I will also use it on my springfield xd. Will you charge extra for an extra sight blade?

The same blade will work for both now.
If you want an extra blade they are $7 when ordered with the tool.

Not a bad idea since the XD's are so tough although some of pushed on the sight itself with decent results although the sight is
ruined in some cases.

Red locktite makes them a bear to get off.

Just received the new blocks. great service! Thanks again.

I'm thinking of putting some foam tape on the blocks. Anyone try this yet?

Update: Had a $10 gift card so I ordered some vise pads from Brownells. We'll see how they work.

Just be careful and not use anything that will allow the slide to move in the blocks.

Make sure you tighten the holding screw as tight as you can by hand.

Default P95

Doesn't the P95 have a lever on the slide?

If so it will need to be removed to clamp the slide.

Yes, mine is the decocker model with manual safety / decocker that is easily removed. Will it fit the size of that slide?

I can't seem to fit my slide to change the front sights for my M&P using this tool. Anyone have the same problems?

Did you take the bottom block out?

1. Wrap slide with cleaning patch or another suitable
material to protect slide surface.

2. Insert slide between clamp blocks aligning sight
base with sight blade, if needed use washers under
slide to achieve correct height.

3. Tighten wingnut to secure slide.

4. Use a 3/4" wrench to turn adjusting bolt, this will
move the sight blade

To achieve proper clearance for front sights
take out the shim block by removing the screw under
the sight tool and follow steps 1 - 4.
