The Universal Sight Pusher

They are milled out of a solid 2" x 2" x 5" block of 6061 aluminum which is then hard coat anodized for strength and wear resistance. The screws are grade 8.

This innovative design uses a hardened, non-rotating ram riding on a hardened rail which allows for its use on other slides as well.


Its unique universal feature uses a clamp on the bottom and swivel tipped screws on the sides. The swivel tipped screws provide added slide support, extra finish protection along with aligning many different slide configurations.

This pusher will remove and install most sights including Tru-Glo. This tool can help take the nightmare out of changing sights and sighting in any pistol.

It can move, install, or remove the sights in either direction
.
This sight pusher is shown on an XD service pistol but works on many others.

Why not save yourself time, money and aggravation, buy the best the first time. Hillwig Tool - Made in the USA.

Cost of Sight Pusher
If you look at the cost of the materials; I use a 6061 solid aluminum block that's hard coat anodized, grade 8 screws, a hardened push block,a hardened rail, swivel tip (derlon or stainless tip) support screws, the material and outside service cost (heat treat, anodizing) is significant. I make about $5 bucks an hour machining them. I am not making these to get rich or as my full time job, I make these because I know what a difference a great tool can make to a shooters experience and how fun shooting is. It will be the only sight pusher you will ever need!
Base price $120, look on website for details.

There have been hundreds of satisfied customers. Each one has sent a thank you and note about how well the tool works and how easy it is to use. A lot of them have included pictures or videos of the finished project or undertaking. I have NOT had one complaint. If you plan on owning more than one brand of gun, get the tool that works on them all, heck I even used it on a muzzle loader. If the gun has a dovetail with a sight in it, this is the tool for you! Save your time money and aggravation and buy the one you will eventually end up with, hillwigtool.
Thanks for your business and have fun shooting.

The pusher screw has 16 threads per inch, so one complete reveloution of the screw moves the sight .0625 of an inch, a half a turn .03125 of an inch and so on.

Just got this email today from Benny S.

I have used your sight pusher toinstall front and rear sights on four XDMs and front sights on two Rugers, anSR9 and an SR45.
With the sight manufacturers charging 20-35 dollars per sight plus shippingcosts you can't go wrong to buy this tool and install
them yourself. I also let a friend use the tool to install sights on his Glock.I set it up on a Springfield 1911 just to see it it would
work and it looks like it will work fine. If it is possible you will dosights on more than one gun buy the tool.

It's a tool to "push" your pistol sights out of their dove tail and to push new sights in. It can also be used to move your sights right or left.
