    Here's my experience with the Glockmeister sight tool:

    1st use: Meprolights; the sights went on fine, but the tool started to break. The part that actually contacts the sights came disconnected from the screw that pushes it on one side. No big deal because it could still push.

    2nd use: Heinie night sights; was barely able to get the sights half way onto the slide when one side of the pusher completely locked up and began to bend, and eventually the entire tool came apart. I now have a carry gun that I can't carry until my MGW tool arrives. Tapping with a punch isn't going to cut it this time.

    I would definitely recommend against purchasing this tool, based on my experience. I've read good things about the mgw tool and look forward to getting some sights back on my glock.

    The MGW tool is a heavy-duty, well-made device. You might have to open it up a tad for Heinie's. I did so by filing and rebluing.

    The MGW is the best tool for Glocks.

    Thanks, strider. I had seen the Glockmeister site tool before, but it used to be a little less. About the same as the MGW. I'm glad I never wasted my money on the Glockmeister.

    You mean people move their Glock sights?

    Ruprect,

    WalterGA and striderglock are right!

    The MGW tool is a great heavy-duty well-made sight tool.

    It is well worth the money and can be used on both small and large size Glock slides (meaning one doesn't have to purchase a separate tool for each - inevitably causing inordinate expense).

    Best Regards,
    Glockguy

    Excellent now if it would just get here. My G26 feels so naked without sights :)

    ruprect,

    just checking, are you familiar with "jewlers/swiss pattern files" ? really when you do dovetail sights sometimes(a lot of the time) you will have to file down areae of the site to get it to fit about 1/3 of the way easily by hand and then use a tool.:)

    i learned the hard way so trust me.lol

    also, i have a couple gunsmithing books that show this method..

    Out of the past 6 sights I've installed or had installed none of them needed filing. One rear was rather tight though.

    I've heard Heinie's need filing sometimes.

    I have installed hundreds of Heinie Glock sights, none of them needed fitting.

    I must be doing something wrong. Trying to install Heinies I got from CGR resulted in my POS Glockmeister tool falling apart (poorly constructed tool pushing against something that doesn't move). I tried several times with a padded vise and a punch/mallet. Finally my MGW tool arrived yesterday, and it's a no-go. I've been sure to fit them into the dovetail by hand to ensure proper alignment, and I oiled the dovetail, etc etc etc. The ONLY way they're going to fit is if they get filed down, and they're so scuffed and scratched at this point I'm not going to bother.

    This is a good idea that I wish I'd tried sooner. My heinies would barely get even 1mm into the dovetail (if that) by hand, and would not move at all with various tools.
