    The moral of this story.... I was at home using a small vise. I have a huge vise at work with poly jaws.

    make sure you have a good base as my factory rear sight to dovetail slot is tight.

    This hurt, but after my tears..... I am no longer afraid to scratch it.

    I also bought some 2 mil pipe tape wrap for future jobs.

    A couple of things for doing this kind of work. First, I think the best thing to use is a nice piece of leather. You can get two of them from Brownells pretty cheap.

    This is way better than any kind of tape and you can use it hundreds of times without damaging slides.

    Also, most jaws can be flipped to put the smooth side out. and that will help a lot as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Leather? Excellent idea. I usually buy Crossbreed holsters w/ the largest of piece of leather and then trim to fit. So I have a few pieces of horsehide that will work well. Thanks for the idea.

    I've been looking at sight pusher tools. Some are cost prohibitive. This one looks much more affordable:

    Anyone ever tried one and care to comment? By the time I pay for the leather pads, brass punch set etc. I would be "close enough" to the cost of this pusher tool.

    I have one like that works okay on glocks etc. Beretta with the decockers so so.

    This one is pretty good IMO. Put adjustable sights on my 92X with it. Still want to tape up the slide. I use cardboard to clamp the side in my cheap vise.

    Save your $$
    The MGW is pricy but worth it

    MGW Pro is probably the best money I have spent on firearm tools. Have been able to safely and quickly change sights on B92, PX4 FS and Compct, HK USP 9/45, Walter PPS, and multiple Glocks. Spent the money after accumulating 5 PX4 variants which have notoriously tight rear sights. Used in a vice in very straightforward. I even take it the range to tweak sights, a little bulky there but again move tight sights with little drama. If you do it, order from Brownells, anything breaks they will replace it.
