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:  Universal for any square slide
Would recommend:  yes

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 ...

Author: Ruger SR9C from Tumwater WA on Dec 22, 2012
Pros:  Well built
Cons:  Lacking in forethought shims will be needed for a fit
Would recommend:  no

Ruger SR9C wrote:

A word of caution as the device does not work well on the SR Ruger series. The fixed lower right had block is too short to the position of the bottom holding block and could ruin a slide if pressure is needed to move the sight. Does not fit well at all for the front sight. Phone number for the company that makes this device is disconnected!

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 ...

Pros:  Easy to use and setup
Cons:  Slide can be off center due to one hozorizontal side not being adjustable
Would recommend:  yes

Bob Randolph wrote:

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.
