    I need some help with this one, I need to adjust my rear sight(windage) and I dont want to pay 140.00 for the tool to adjust. So my question is do any of you know a good way to drift the rear sight without doing damage? BTW im talking the plastic rear sight. Thanks,Paul

    You could always see if your local gun store has a rear sight tool. Or check out www.brownells.com They sell rear sight tools for way less than $140. Good Luck.

    A good sight pusher can be had for $75 or less, no need to spend $140.

    You can use a punch and hammer but it will not be very precise.

    Buy the tool. If you end up with the GLOCK disease like most of us here have, you will be installing your own sights to save you money. It is a simple task with the sight pusher and it makes sight adjustments much easier than a hammer and punch. It can be had for much less than $140.00. I purchased mine from http://www.topgunsupply.com/home.php. I got the heavy duty version for about $80. It has since paid for itself. Buy the tool, you won't regret it.

    I was thinking about that, but I had a feeling I might tear something up. I have read many of your posts on here and I know you have a ton of glocks and you do your own work on them. Im sure you could adjust my sights with your eyes closed, but for me it would be an experminent. But thanks for your input! Paul

    This says its for the tall sights. Will it work on the factory sights also?

    Try a plastic punch and a weighted plastic mallet.

    It will likely work on the trapazoid sights but not as well as the pusher for those style sights.

    Go to the next gun show in your area with replacement sights in hand. There seems to be a GLOCK guy at every one I've been to always has sights for sale and a sight pusher. Probably would install for little or nothing. TJ

    MGW sight tool $49.95 + shipping
    they are in stock.
    They are the old style sight pushing tools, but they work great!
    I have been using my for a long time now.

    PS. A hard plastic hammer works too.

    Punch & Hammer..........no it's not precise, but you can make small adjustments with light taps. Of course if you plan on installing many more sights, then go ahead and get a sight tool as the others suggested.
