Default Handgun Rear Sight Pusher Recommendations/Reviews

Hey guys, just want to know what you guys use

would like to know what is the popular choice of professionals.

Currently need to change out sights on my glock, but in the foreseeable future, i may need to do it for HK/Sig/CZ and others to name a few.

Thanks!

This is what I have, not cheap but precision built and heavy duty. Buy once, cry once.

Good vise, aluminum punch, copper punch and good hammer. Wrap the slide to protect it.

with the money you waste on a jig you could but a good vise, punches and a few hammers and be able to do other stuff too.

This is what I use as well with removing and fitting rear sights. Takes time but I think gets better results. A lot of people who use sight pushers tend to not do the fitting procedure so they end up marring the sights or slide on install. With the punch and vise hammer method you learn to fit the sight. If you decide to use the sight pusher after fitting it just makes things easier

Iíve seen too many pistols with buggered up rear sights and or slides. Iíve even seen it from some local smiths which irritates me. They wonít see my business anymore.
