It also works good at the range for adjusting the sights side to side. To compensate for sloppy tolerances in the dovetail cuts most manufacturers machine their sights a little large and you will need to fit the sights by filing or stoning. Machine has been designing and manufacturing tooling for many applications including for gunsmiths and shooters for more than 30 years.
All of our products are made in house on modern CNC machining centers here in Washington state using domestic materials and hardware as much as possible. Excellent customer service and support has made us one of the largest sight tool manufacturers in the U. Look at the sight and see if you need the angled side or the straight side of the pusher block. You always want to use the head end of the bolt and push the sight towards the solid jaw (do not push towards the thumb screw). You might have to pull the nut and slip the pusher block around the other way.
Cut and install provided protective strip or use cleaning patches use a material that won`t let the slide move in the tool. Use gun oil or gun grease on the threads of the tool and oil the sight so it moves more easily. Install the slide and shim as needed with coins or washers so you`re lined up to push at the bottom of the sight don`t push on the upper blade area. Tighten thumb screw (by hand) to secure the slide.
Double check that you have it lined up right. You might want to put a strip of a business card or a cleaning patch between the pusher and the sight so the sight does not get scratched. Slowly turn the bolt head and keep checking as the sight moves for alignment. Keep in mind that 20 pounds of torque on a 6 long wrench is over 2,000 LBS of pressure pushing on the sight.
If the sight does not move and you think you are having to force it " STOP " and soak the slide and sight in gun oil over night and then try again to get it apart.
