“This is a great gun, but these sights gotta go.”
It never fails: You find a nice piece of shooting iron at a decent price, but five seconds after it’s out of the box you’re itching to upgrade the sights. And although it’s actually not a terribly difficult task, most people end up taking their gun to a gunsmith to have it done. What if you could just…do it yourself? That’s where Real Avid‘s New Master Sight Pusher is a boon to gun enthusiasts. It’s adaptable to work with most 1911-style and striker-fired pistols on the market today, and it’s as gentle on your sights and optics as it is tough and rugged.
The Master Sight Pusher is a professional-grade tool that makes quick work out of replacing or upgrading pistol sights. This modern gunsmithing tool is heavy-duty, built to last, and smartly designed to work with almost all modern pistol sights and slides. The oversized, ergonomic Easy Torque Handle partners with extra-fine-drive threads to provide maximum torque with minute adjustment capabilities for precise sight alignment.
A reversible universal press block features multiple contact surfaces for almost any size and style of press-fit dovetail slots and sight profiles. The slide cradle is adjustable, with non-marring contact surfaces to deliver a secure hold on both 1911 pistols and pistols with flat-bottom slides. The Master Sight Pusher also includes spring-loaded vertical adjustment knobs as well as a safe lock anti-torsion frame for optimal control.
Another great feature of The Master Sight Pusher is the bench face attachment ridge, which allows for simple attachment to any work bench. The oversized and comfortable Easy Torque Handle makes turning a breeze and features an integrated 3/8 ratchet receiver to provide additional leverage for pushing stubborn or seized sights. A heavy-duty grip helps secure the tool while turning the oversized Easy Torque Handle.
“Night sight upgrades are especially important to home and personal defense practitioners,” said Howard Tripp, Real Avid Chief Innovation Officer. “The problem many DIY enthusiasts face is conquering the interference-fit dovetail configuration found on most of the popular handguns. Lacking the proper removal and installation tools, the task is difficult, and that expensive gun or sight set can be easily damaged. Our new Master Sight Pusher eliminates this problem and is adaptable to work with most 1911 and striker-fired pistols on the market today.”
