    I am looking for a sight pusher. I have a pretty diverse collection that ranges from Classic Sig Ps, CZs, 1911s, Glocks, BHPs etc... and I am looking for a reliable well made tool to push and replace sights on these guns. I have a MGW Glock sight tool which I used to drift the rear sights on my Glock 19s and 17s and it does the trick but will not work on other guns.

    So I am looking for suggestions on a decent sight pusher that will work as a universal solution.

    I’ve had my eye on that MGW that works for all (with the right shoe??). I’ve got one for M&Ps and is the only kind I’ve used but it sure works awesome. Pricey but buy once cry once!

    I am looking at those and then the MGW Sight Pro Sight mover which has different shims for different makes and models. Each set of shims costs about $15. So you are looking at even more cash to move the sights on multiple types of pistols. The MGW is expensive but if I got it I would never have to buy another sight tool.

    The JMT also looks good but appears to be harder to setup but the reviews are positive. I am not sure that the MGW is worth the extra coin. I am not in the gunsmith business but like with the Glocks I have if I had the proper tool I would move my sights more than I currently do. I bought the Glock tool because I move all my Glock sights a bit left. In retospec I should have bought a universal tool when I bought the one I did.

    I currently have 3 sets of sights I want to swap out. Sig P228, Sig P225 and a M&P 2.0. As night sights die I am sure I would swap others out as well. Sort of leaning towards the JMT.

    B&J P500. Expensive but ideal. I've used a lot of pushers, for a lot of different pistols, and the P500 is wonderful.

    I think mine is a Wheeler universal and it’s pretty much all inclusive

    What type do you have and what would it cost me to rent it?

    I have seen mixed reviews about the Wheeler. How long have you had it?

    I’ve used a brass punch a lot. Switched to a P500 a year or so ago, it’s great for small adjustments and really stuck sights.
