The Real Avid Master Sight Pusher delivers features that make a stubborn task easier.

For those looking to work on their own pistols, Real Avid just announced the release of its newest gunsmithing tool, the Master Sight Pusher. The professional grade Sight Pusher enables gun owners to easily and safely remove and install press-fit pistol sights.

The Master Sight Pusher makes quick work of replacing or upgrading pistol sights. Its oversized Easy Torque Handle works with extra-fine-drive threads to provide maximum torque. Additionally, it enables minute adjustments for precise alignment.

The reversible universal press block features multiple contact surfaces. It accommodates most any size and style of press-fit, dovetail slots and sight profiles, according to Real Avid. A slide cradles adjusts and includes non-marring contact surfaces. It handles both 1911-style and flat-bottom slides. Spring-loaded vertical adjustment knobs and a safe lock anti-torsion frame round out the features.

“Upgrading pistol sights is one of the first things serious shooters will do to their handguns, and night sight upgrades are especially important to home and personal defense practitioners,” said Howard Tripp, Real Avid Chief Innovation Officer. “The problem many DIY enthusiasts face is conquering the interference-fit dovetail configuration found on most of the popular handguns. Lacking the proper removal and installation tools, the task is difficult, and that expensive gun or sight set can be easily damaged. Our new Master Sight Pusher eliminates this problem and is adaptable to work with most 1911 and striker-fired pistols on the market today.”

Provides Plenty of Torque

A bench face attachment ridge allows simple attachment to any work bench. An Easy Torque Handle provides sufficient leverage to work difficult sights. Meanwhile, a heavy-duty grip helps secure the tool while turning the handle.

“At Real Avid, our focus is to provide tooling and task solutions for the DIY gun enthusiast,” said Dave Steiner, Real Avid President. “Since pistol sights represent one of the most common and needful upgrades for shooters, and since most handgun enthusiasts own more than one make or style of pistol, it made sense for us to develop a universal-style sight pusher. The new Master Sight Pusher allows shooters to install their favorite sight without going to a gunsmith or purchasing a costly sight installer for each model handgun they use.”
