    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.
     
  2. 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...
     
  6. not going towards philly anytime soon (relatives all moved out) but if you're going to cleveland or through it, lmk, i'll install them for you. no charge.

    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.
