I stopped in the XS Sights booth at the 2023 SHOT show for a quick visit and learned about their new Glock Sight Pusher Kit. 

 

 

After getting a quick demo on the show floor, I was curious enough to get a test sample sent to me for further experimentation.

In the video, you will see my first attempt to use the tool, and even for someone like me, it was not tough to use and get right.

The sight pusher worked with little effort due to the 1/16″ thread pitch allowing for 1/16″ travel of the non-marring brass drift for one, and a half turns of the tee handle. Notice the 1/16th” centering scale on the brass drift. This facilitates centering the rear sight and any adjustment that needs to be made. The plastic wedge acts as a non-marring shim accommodating all the different Glock and aftermarket Glock slide widths.

The tee handle is machined as a snug static fit on the pusher but is easily removed. My favorite aspect is the end is a magnetized driver that fits the front sight threaded fastener. So the kit is truly complete with some additional features to make it more user-friendly.

XS also offers a less expensive DIY Sight Pusher for Glocks at an MSRP of $150 with all the same features except the tee handle for those who want to save a bit of money but still need a professional sight pusher.

I spent much of my youth involved with firearms and felt the call early on to the United States Marine Corps, following in my father's and his brother's footsteps. Just after high school I enlisted and felt most at home on the rifle range, where I qualified expert with several firearms and spent some time as a rifle coach to my fellow Marines. After being honorably discharged I continued teaching firearm safety, rifle and pistol marksmanship, and began teaching metallic cartridge reloading. In the late 1990s I became a life member to the National Rifle Association and worked with the Friends of the NRA. Around that time my father and I became involved with IDPA and competed together up until he passed away. I began reviewing firearms for publications in the mid 2000s and have been fortunate to make many friends in the industry. Continuing to improve my firearms skills and knowledge is a never ending journey in which we should all be committed. I am also credited as weapons master on a few independent films.
