Factory sights not cutting the mustard?
The first thing most serious shooters do the moment they get their new pistol home is to take a good, hard look at the factory sights and get to work fine-tuning them. The problem, of course, is that replacing or upgrading pistol sights is a pain–and that’s where the brand-new Real Avid Master Sight Pusher shines. Real Avid specializes in creating professional-grade tools and toolkits for the DIY gunsmith at extremely reasonable prices, and the Master Sight Pusher is the perfect example. Heavy-duty and built to last, it’s designed to work with almost all modern pistol sights and slides simply and precisely.
The problem many do-it-yourselfers run into is that the interference-fit dovetail configuration on most popular pistols is hard to adjust without proper tools. Using too much muscle can easily damage the custom aftermarket gun or sight set you were trying to install. The Real Avid Master Sight Pusher solves that with its oversized, ergonomic Easy Torque Handle, paired with extra-fine-drive threads to provide maximum torque with minute adjustment capabilities.
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.Says Howard Tripp, Real Avid Chief Innovation Officer, “Our new Master Sight Pusher is adaptable to work with most 1911 and striker-fired pistols on the market today.”
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 for a gentle but 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.
