    I'm needing to adjust the sights on my new Kimber Ultra CDP II. What is the best way to do this? I have a MGW sight pusher for my Glocks, will this work for my Kimber or do I need to buy the correct tool?

    The factory-installed Kimber rear sights are notoriously difficult to move and broken sight pushers aren't uncommon (the factory worries about you removing the guts of the Series II FP-safety that lie underneath that rear sight). You definitely need a sight pusher that will fit and hold the slide correctly or you could damage the slide before ever moving the sight. I personally use a B&J Machine model 500 universal sight pusher for my Kimbers.

    Make sure you really need a sight adjustment first. They are usually right from the factory and most people are adjutsing sights to correct a shooting error - if you do that, you'll never fix the error. (and yes, you can shoot a consistent group in the wrong place due to a shooting error - especially at close range).
