    Default Anyone in the reading area have a glock sight pusher to rent?

    Easy question. I need a rear sight pusher for about 8 minutes in the reading area.

    What’s out there?

    There is a GSSF Match in Topton in August. The Glock armorer at the match may be willing to help you.

    Zet I use a nylon hammer and tap out the old sites. I then tap the new one back in. I wrap the slide in leather and place it into a vise. Its not really hard to do.

    Same, just be gentle. You want to come by I'll do it for a 6pk of Lager. But I'm the other way.

    Yeah Glock sights practically fall out and the replacement can be smoothly and gently tapped in with a bit of pre stoning to smooth out ant tiny burrs and imperfections.

    Use a nylon hammer and punch to start if you need more then that switch to a brass punch do not use steel. I also recommend getting an armors block or a very padded vise.

    Don’t buy cheap tritium night sights either.

    Hmmmm maybe there is something wrong with my new sights. Ameriglo suppressor height sights. Are these known to be oversized? I’ll pick up a nylon hammer tomorrow. Thanks!

    Some sights you have to very lightly file sometimes...

    I have done it exactly like this before. I used a broken chair leg lol... Use a block of wood between the C lamp though...
    It's easer to pay someone to do it. Next time If you buy them and have them installed at the same time sometimes installation is free...
