MeproLight KIMPRO Universal Sight Tool

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on January 31, 2013
This is an excellent tool for anyone who wants to change their own sights. If you are a novice, just review the included instructional video and you'll be just as good as the expert gunsmith.
Pros: excellent craftmanship, easy to use
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

Worked on all slides I tried so far

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CO Written on January 10, 2013
I've used this slide to completely remove and instal Trijicon Night Sights on the following frames.

Kimber 1911's, rear only wont do front's because of radius on slide

HK USP compacts 9mm and .45acp front and rear

Sig Sauer P290 front and rear

Worked great on all of these frames. My initial unit was defective as it was missing a critical pin and the DVD had no audio. But Optic Planet took the return with no questions or hassles (Thank You). My second unit was correct and even had wrenches that my first was missing.

The little foam pads on the metal parts that contact the slide will start to move on you and squish out because they have double sided tape securing them. So when mine get to bad I will probably just remove them entirely and put some leather squares on there.

Other than that this was a much better option than buying multiple gun specific tools. Now I can adjust my point of impact at the range on shooting days. And unfortunately I have to do everyone else's as well, LOL.

*Note* From everything I've heard if you have a Springfield XD you need to get a specific Springfield tool as their dovetails are so incredibly tight. So this may not work for you.
Pros: Universal for any square slide...

MeproLight KIMPRO Universal Sight Installation Tool 1001486A

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on December 21, 2012
I have several gun manufacturer specific sight installation tools, the Meprolight U.S.I.T. Universal Sight Installation Tool 40440, P500 Universal Sight Tool Kit and many other sight drift or installation tools. By far the KIMPRO is the best value for the money out there! It is more expensive than a single gun specific MGW brand tool but fills the function of about 5 of them. There is always a compromise no one tool does it all but this one is really close. I really like the 2-way clamping action made easy and the fine front sight contact potential. This is not the "go to" for pinned, stuck or just down-right tight or stubborn sights. You can read my other review for the MeproLight U.S.I.T to get some of the pros and cons for it as compared to the KIMPRO. I like the KIMPRO for my range bag and it is now my "go to first" tool even in the shop 90% of the time. If you are looking to buy your first sight pusher and have the potential need for more than one brand of pistol; start here. If you already have a specific MGW and are looking to expand this would also be a good choice. I'd have zero reservation about buying this tool again.
Pros: Portable, multiple applications, well made
Cons: Lack of stability, small contact surfaces, light duty force...
Would recommend: Yes

Kimpro Sight Tool

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on November 21, 2012
Not all slides are the same size. You may need to shim one side to get the slide in the middle of the tool so the slide is not canted. Other than this, great tool but wish they would make both sides adjustable.
Pros: Easy to use and setup
Cons: Slide can be off center due to one hozorizontal side not being adjustable...
