    I'm in no way trying to be rude. I'm sorry if I come off that way. But how can you not know that and be a Glock Certified Armorer? It just seems like that would be something they would talk about in the course (I haven't taken the course so I don't know)

    I really sincerely apologize. I didn't mean to be rude or abrasive. After rereading my post hours later I see there was no nice way to ask what I did and I should have just not said anything.

    I really was just curious if it was something that was gone over in the class or if it was in the armorers manual (as I intend to take the course soon)

    I wasn't taking a stab at Matt for not knowing. God knows there's a lot of things I don't know. Again sorry Matt if you took offense.

    If you cant find a nut driver that size

    Get an allen key that size and go to your local hardware store and find a cap screw 1" long that size and double nut it and you can use that

    By the way the dog in your sig looks beutifull

    I use a driver from a electronics set I got at Radio Shack. Works very well.
    Also the Glock tool works well from what I hear.

    As an armorer you should be able to order a front sight tool directly from Glock (if you're planning on doing several sights).

    It's really nice and the tip is magnetized. Or you can find some cheap throw-away front sight tools on ebay sometimes for about $3.

    I saw in a review somewhere that the plastic T-handels on the glockmeister rear sight pusher can fall off. Have you had any problems with yours?
