    Just Bought the glock rear sight tool from Burnells for $122.00 and it crushed my new poly sight putting it on! It may work fine on metal sights... But im sending back... Any front 3/16 sight tool will work fine.

    The newest version of the original Glock manufacturer's tool is the best in my opinion. I have not had good results with the MGW aftermarket tool.

    I put my TFOs on my G17 with a hammer and brass punch. Did not leave a mark on the sights.

    The current production Glock rear sight tool is a turd. It broke on me the first time I went to use it. The bar snapped, then it tore itself apart.

    The original big cast ones were GREAT with the big butterfly handles...but the current ones are worthless.

    The MGW is the best available substitute if you can't find an old Glock one.
