Blocks included will work with XD, XD(m) and XD Slim Models. 

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.

Used many times on many guns

- 03rd February 2017

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

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 .

A real review of the site Pusher!!!

- 28th December 2014

First I'd like to say don't listen to Dennis R review... With no lubricant and no bench vice, I was able to remove both the front and rear sights, in about 20 minutes and i'm NO GUNSMITH! If you're at all mechanically inclined you will have no trouble using this and having it work for you. Oh, by the way, my front sight came out easier than the back. Purchase with Confidence because it does work very well.

Sight Pusher Review XDM & XDS

- 15th April 2014

Hi All,
First off, let me start out by saying changing the sights on either the XDM or the XDS is not for a novice. The sight pusher would not move the front sight on the XDM. I had to use a cutting tool. Stress. The rear sight worked very well. Very tight but using a vise it came off. The XDS was much easier. Both front and rear sights came off.
Now, lets talk about the sight pusher. It works without any problem on the rear sight. It however, is a major pain to work the front sight. The problem is the XDM/S front slide. The recoil rod retainer is in the way as the sight pusher is designed. I had to design a work around to make it work.
Last, directions are non-existent. So I can recommend this for seasoned home gunsmiths. It is very strong and reasonable priced. All others, I recommend going to a gunsmith that works on XDs.

Great for the cost

- 19th February 2014

If you are interested in changing sights on several different pistols, this is a great tool. I received it last night and changed a set of sights in about 30 minutes. Did not have to pay a gunsmith or be without my slide for several days. Well worth the money if you are a DIY'er.
