The Universal Pistol Rear Sight Tool works with many types of semi-auto slides: full, compact, subcompact, and pocket-sized semi-auto pistols. The base platform is adjustable for height, to get your slide and rear sights at the proper height for the rear sight pusher. Includes one bottom spacer for some pocket pistol slides for proper height alignment. The multiple vertical and horizontal clamps secure various sizes and types of semi-auto slides in the tool. The adjustable top brace with a plastic insert to secure the slide’s vertical placement on the base platform. The adjustable side braces with plastic inserts secure the slide’s horizontal placement on the base platform. Includes two sets of side plastic inserts: a pair of flat inserts and a pair of stepped inserts to fit a wide variety of slide profiles.

  • The rear sight pusher tool has an adjustable/removable handle or you can use a 15mm wrench or socket tool.
  • Heavy-duty Blue Anodized aluminum frame with steel tools
  • Sight pusher steel screw has brass bushings for good bearing surface characteristics and excellent strength.

What I Like About This Product:

It works so easily!  I have used other sight tools and I always had to modify things so they would work.  Not this tool, it comes with everything necessary to do the job.  

What I Would Change About This Product:

The only thing I add when using this tool is some blue painter’s tape, just in case it would mar the finish and I am good to go and that is not really a change to the tool.

Final Remarks:

This is a great universal rear sight pusher.  It is large enough to hold the large frame semi-automatic pistols slides as well as the medium and small slides too.  It works very easily, which is a nice change from other sight pushers I have used. It is much better to use a sight pusher rather than a hammer and a punch, I really recommend this one, it is the only one I use now.
