In gunsmithing school we are taught to use several different methods of changing sights. There are many different tools that aid in the changing / installation of sights for each type of gun / sight pairing.
One area many people seem to have trouble with is the rear sights on Glock pistols. It is not that changing / installing them is difficult. The hard part is getting them in place without marring the sight with the tool you are using.
I was struggling with this very issue during my last semester in school when I encountered a forum posting raving about the Glockmeister sight tool. It went so far as to question the intelligence of anyone who installed Glock sights more than a few times a year without this tool.
Well as a Glock Certified Armorer I was hoping to work on my fair share of Glocks so decided to give it a try. I visited the website, paid my money, and waited for the UPS driver to arrive. A few days went by and there it was looking up at me from its box. I felt smarter already and I hadn’t even touched it yet.
I used it to install another rear Trijicon HD Night Sight (GL104Y) on a Glock G21 I had been working on. The Glockmeister Sight Tool for All GLOCK Models did not disappoint. It very well may have been the easiest gun accessory upgrade I did in my entire time at school.
I spent more time than I care to admit tinkering with the first rear sight on that Glock. During the install I nicked the side of the sight so I was not satisfied with my work. I would not have returned it to a client in that condition. After I installed the second one with the Glockmeister tool I knew that I would be keeping this tool close at hand. I was done in minutes and there was not even the opportunity to mar the sight in the process.
Any hobbyist with basic skills who doesn’t mind the cost of the tool should not have any problem using it effectively. Just remember that most gunsmith shops will do the work for significantly less then the tool costs.
I highly recommend the Glockmeister Sight Tool for All GLOCK Models for anyone who installs more then three sets of Glock sights a year.
