The MGW Sight Pro Universal Installation Tool is designed to remove, install and adjust front and rear dovetail sights on semi-automatic handguns. The benefit of the Universal Installation Tool over a gun specific tool is that it accepts shoe clamps that are made specifically for each handgun allowing one tool to do the work on multiple guns. This mechanism will take up less space on a work bench and provides a cost effective way to adjust the sights on different handguns.
The Sight Pro Universal installation tool includes both 30 degree angled body and straight body pusher blocks for use on a variety of different firearms. Additionally, a slide shoe clamp (sold separately, Midway # 2236152861) specific to your firearm is necessary to securely hold the slide in place. This allows the MGW Sight Pro to truly be a universal tool, eliminating the need to buy multiple expensive sight tools.
The support shaft that is opposite of the threaded T-handle was smooth with no key. In order to remove the shaft which is Left Hand Threaded into the main threaded shaft, it was necessary to clamp the smooth support shaft in a vise. This risked damaging the smooth surface and could gall in the aluminum body. This was the reason MGW initially offered a complete carriage assembly for each block. With the new design, the left hand threaded support shaft now is a 416 SS material (was low carbon blued steel) with a 1/4 hex broach in the end. The support shaft can now be quickly and easily removed to swap out blocks with a standard 1/4" hex allen key supplied in this kit.
