Worth The Extra Cash

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on May 7, 2013
As a gunsmith for the last 10 years I've managed to destroy 3 other sight tools ranging from 80 to 150 dollars. The investment in this one is considerable but after figuring it out and using it on both front and rear sights of various manufacturers I'm convinced that it is the last one needed.
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Expensive...
Would recommend: Yes

Meprolight USIT Night Sight Installation Tool - 40440

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 5, 2012
This unit would be best for the gun smith or collector seeking a bullet proof bench mounted sight tool. The 40440 Comes set up for rear sights and the Meprolight Kimber sight pusher adapter 40439 is required for most front sights. The best reason to get this tool is for front sights on 1911s especially the Les Baers. Les Baer 1911 front sights are blind hole pinned and this tool has enough tool contact and pushing force to shear the pins. The documented method for removing the pinned front sight is to machine the front sight to seperate the front pinned section from the rear dove tailed section. Once the sight pinned section is machined or cut from the rear dove tail section the pinned section can be easily removed and then the dove tail can be pushed from the slide cut like other dove tail types. You are expected to either drill out the pin or cut or machine the front sight. This tool, with the 40439 adapter installed, has good contact with the extremely small surface area available to push the 1911 front sight. Once the slide with sight is carefully mounted the tool has enough strength to shear the pin and push the sight from the dove tail.
One negative is the single dimension slide vise. I use leather to gain better traction and elevation adjustments. The tool is really solid and well made but a few things would have made it a 5:
1) Better clamping and height adjustment
2) The 40439 should be inculded as it is required for most front sights.
3) Having an easier way to ...

BEST SIGHT TOOL MADE !

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WV Written on July 7, 2012
My son and I have tried other tools to change the sights on our Kimber Ultra Carry Crimson handguns with very diappointing results. They were not made sturdy enough to handle the ultra tight sights common on Kimber models. This sight tool with proper adapter for specific Kimber sight change makes the change positively proper. This is the best and sturdiest tool on the market. It is pricey but when you see how well built you will understand the price. The tool should be used with patience to properly aling the sight tool and definitely read and folow the instructions and the tool has the engineering and power to install any sight on any 1911 or auto pistol style. I can;t emphasize how well the tool works with proper operation and patience to make sure that everything is properly aligned be fore pressing.
Pros: Sturdy- Accurate- Precise
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes
