    Over the years I've rented various kits (e.g., barrel threading kits) and was wondering if anyone rented out glock rear-sight pusher kits. Usually you paypal a deposit of $50-$75 and make a payment of $20-$30.

    Does anyone know of anyone here at glocktalk that rents their kits?

    The rear sight tool is $89 online.. so why someone would take a $75 deposit, I don't know.

    Something like a barrel threading kit, I could understand. But a Glock rear sight tool? By the time you pay a rental fee, you could simply pay a local shop to put them on(usually around $30-$40). Call a couple of shops in your area, and ask them how much they charge to put on Glock sights(if you haven't already)...

    The bigger problem is the front sight, not the rear sight. Since the clearance for the screw is smaller than most nut drivers available, you have to use the Glock tool.

    Let us know if you find someone. If I lived near you I would just loan you mine for free.

    I don't want to use a vice and wood because I plan to use it at the range.
    I'd be glad to just send a payment along with a DEPOSIT check that could be ripped up (you could wait until they both clear before sending the tool).
    I'm about to buy a pair of Warren Tactical 2-dot night sights but wanted to adjust them at the range (I'll get my gunstore guys to put them on).

    You would be amazed how little a sight tool depreciates and how quickly a used one resales. When I need one, I just order a new one and sell it on one of the forums when I'm finished. Usually lose about $20.00 on one. Just as cheap as renting and no hurry to return it.
