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.
