    Hey guys, I recently purchased a set of Meps off of a forum member and I'd like to install them myself...but I don't have the tools. If there is anyone in the Philadelphia area who has the tools and loctite to help me out with a quick install you would be handsomely rewarded.

    With what you might ask? Well...I happen to have a 6-pack of Troegs Nugget Nectar with your name on it. Not a beer drinker? Well how's throwing back a few glasses of some fine Basil Hayden bourbon sound? :drink:

    I could do it myself with a screw driver...I realize that, but I don't want to risk cracking one of the viles so a sight pusher is preferred.

    Thanks for looking.

    Well, I wish I was in your area.
    I would help you out for a chance to share some fine bourbon with you.
    I hope someone takes you up on it.
    Probably take me about ten hours to get there.
    A little too far to drive after fine bourbon. :)

    Damn, I'm originally from a small town outside of Harrisburg called Dauphin. I'm a grad student out here in Philly though...This hammer and small screw driver that could serve as a makeshift drift is looking tempting...

    Dont do it, you will marr the **** out of your sight, My rear sight has a wicked nick in the bottom of it. I was using cardboard between the steel punch and the sight and the cardboard failed and I never even got the sight in.

    Im off to buy a vise and a brass punch today to get the job done. The vise seems to be the important part :)

    If you're a Philadelphia Archery and Gun member, they'll do it for nothing. If not a member, they'll do it for a pretty nominal fee.

    Thanks for all the advice and help guys! Unfortunately...I created this thread about a month ago...and a few days after posting I installed my night sights with nothing more than a dish towel(damage protection), a hammer, a wooden spoon (drift), and the ledge between my carpet and hardwood floors(vice).

    Turned out great...on both of my glocks. Dead center precise, absolutely no damage or marks.
