    I have a G30 I need to install a set of Trij's on. All I have for the rear sight is a 9/40 sight. Will it work well enough to get the sight set on the bigger .45 frame?

    Nope: Glock's rear sight tools are small frame/large frame specific. On the other hand, if you'd bought the $54 MGW Glock Rear Sight Tool from Brownell's, it'd work on all Glocks.

    Yeah, I totally forgot about the slide width difference. I'll check out the MGW piece.

    I'm no expert gunsmith but I was able to install my Trijicon front and rear sights without any high priced sight tools. I used a vice, plactic mallet, a plastic coated punch and a small socket tool, with no scratchs to the slide. Patience is required but it can be done. I haven had a problem with them at all after hundreds of rounds. Good luck!

    Hey Walter,

    Great tip on the MGW sight pusher. Worked great, better than the Glock model.

    I bought one too, excellent tool and only takes seconds. No chance of cracking a tritium vial whacking on the sight with a punch!
