    I just got a set of Glock adjustable sights. Is it as simple as pushing out the old ones and installing the new. Whats the best tool for the job ?

    Is it as simple? Yes, and no.

    The only thing about it is that the sight can ride up out of the dovetail and seat crooked if one doesn't use a decent sight tool, like Glock's.

    Yes, it can be done, but it can also be screwed up.

    The big question to me is why?

    More often than not, I'm removing the adjustable one to replace it with the fixed one. The fixed sight is more secure and I feel it gives a better sight picture.
