Default Nut Drivers

I found one at a local hobby shop in the RC Car section. It was around $15.00 for a set of 5.

That 3/16 nut is sitting right next to the "lip". The 3/16 socket would have to be paper thin. That nutdriver from Topgunsupply gonna fit???

Finally found what I was looking for.

Hell man, I have a couple of cheap ones laying around from my XS Big Dots install on my 17 and 19 (XS includes the tool with the sights). If you PM your address, I'll send you one (I don't exactly need 3 of them).

I took a cheap nut driver bit like comes in the screwdriver sets and modified it by grinding the end to make the socket much shallower and then OD grinding the outside diameter until it fit into the pocket in the slide.
That bit has lasted me a long time and only cost me a couple bucks and 5 minutes on the surface grinder.

Got my Wiha 3/16 nutdriver last nite. Removing & Installing old/new sights was a breeze.

Anyone replacing Glock sights needs to invest in this tool.
