Sight Pusher for XD, XD(M) & XD Slim

Sight Pusher for XD, XD(M) & XD Slim
Price: $69.99

Based on 12 ratings. (View)

Included blocks will work with XD, XD(m), XD Slim models, and many other pistol with frame profiles that are flat, tappered or stepped. 

As most know, XD sights are notoriously hard to remove and many suggest the use of a gunsmith when it comes time to install new sights. Over the years, many sight pushers have come and gone. Today, there are several sight pushers on the market and the issue with some is that they are expensive (over engineered) or they just don't work. PistolGear is proud to offer this patented, easy to use sight pusher to our customers

Because of its low price point and ease of use, every PistolGear customer should own one.

This tool is effective and simple to use, as shown within the below video. This tool can remove both the front and rear sights with ease. 

Returns on this item are not accepted. Any warranty issues for this product should be addressed with Fisher Solutions directly.

Go to the 1:45 mark of the below video to see the sight pusher in action on a Springfield XD!

Instructions for use:

1. Wrap slide with cleaning patch or another suitable material to protect slide surface such as leather or cardboard. We also suggest you apply penetrating oil such as "Liquid Wrench" to the stock sights to help with their removal.

2. Insert slide between clamp blocks aligning sight base with sight blade, if needed use washers under slide to achieve correct height.

3. Tighten wing nut to secure slide (DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN).

Note: Tighten jam nut on clamping rod against frame after clamping slide to increase clamping rigidity.

4. Use a 3/4" box wrench or ratchet to turn adjusting bolt, this will move the sight blade block.

Note: To achieve proper clearance for front sights take out the shim block by removing the screw under the sight tool and follow steps 1 - 4

Note: When removing an existing  front sight. You may need to push on the front sight rather than the base due to lack of material surface. The blade can slip off if the base is angled or has  a very low profile. When installing front sights once they are properly fitted you should be able to push on the base.

Lightly oil the adjusting bolt and tool frame periodically to prevent rust and insure smooth operation.

Note: Some sights can be very difficult to budge and may require soaking the base in penetrating oil for 24 hours. Another trick (crazy sounding) is to place your slide in your freezer for a few hours. If you are unable to remove or install your sights, please contact a gunsmith.

Very Simple and Easy to use

- 12th December 2017

This tool is amazing for the price. I was very worried about adjusting/installing sights because I am no gunsmith/armorer....but it was very easy and simple to use...if you have general understanding of simple mechanics you will be fine. Some tips: put it in a vice, if not it will be very hard to get a good grip AND screw the bolt.
Also make sure you have some material covering your barrel and even a piece next to the sites you are adjusting.

Make sure you are measured and aligned...and that the barrel is even and not leaning forward or backwards too much. You will have to turn the wrench pretty hard to even get a small increment of movement.

Also, Very big shout out to the pistolgear company, I ordered this on a tuesday and they had it shipped on a thursday.

Great Tool!!!

I bought this tool, and a set of Tru Glo Pro's for my XDM 3.8 9mm. I did not prep my slide as some say they do. I just put the tool in my bench vise, put my slide in the tool, aligned everything, and turn the bolt, sights came out like butter. Easy as could be! Great Investment! Don't let people scare you with the whole "sight install on XD/M/S being a nightmare", it was not at all!

I got my sight pusher today and set it up in the vise. Placed me Springfield Subcompact slide into pusher, added a little pressure and the sights popped loose. I was able to adjust the sights with no problem at all. This sight tool worked well on the LC9 too.
A little pressure and I was able to move the LC9 sights how I wanted them. Thank you

Used many times on many guns

I have replaced sights on XDm 3.8, hk usp compact / full size, m&p shield, xd mod2, 2 sig p227's.

Using a vice is MUCH easier than holding it with your hands... worlds of difference, honestly. I removed the xdm 3.8 sights with the pusher in a vice and some wd40. Piece of cake.

Excellent tool at a fair price! Strongly recommend

- 08th April 2015

Over the years I've paid gunsmiths to install excellent sights on a couple of XD+XDMs. They did good job but never got them truly zeroed. High price of other sight tools had prevented me from investing before seeing this tool. Was a little nervous at first, but am really happy I took the chance. Amazing how much better I can shoot when gun is properly zeroed vs. adjusting where I aim!

Strongly recommend this tool!

Kick Ass

- 13th January 2015

Front and rear sights came right out no problems at all. What took the longest amount of time was waiting for the lock tight to set. If you have a half of a brain you can work this rig. I'm no gunsmith either...If anyone needs to replace their sights this is the tool you want to use. It's pretty much stupid proof,but I guess stupid is STUPID. Buy with confidence .
