The new sight installation tools for Glock pistols from XS are a simple design, fast and easy to use. These versatile sight pushers work with ALL Glock pistols, Double Stack (G-17, G-19 etc.) , Single Stack (G-42, G-48 etc.) and the Wide slides (G-21, G-20 etc.) in any Generation. They have a clever wedge design which secures any size sight with any optic.

The Big News here: Compatibility with suppressor-height sights and red dot optics. You don’t have to dismount optics to install or adjust iron sights. That’s right, the XS Sight Pusher provides ample clearance for taller sights and allows windage adjustments to the rear sight of MOS pistols while keeping a red dot sight attached. The brass pusher plate reduces installation force by up to 50%. The aluminum body won’t mar your finish and it is 40% lighter than sight pushers on the market.

One of my pet hates is working with suppressor height sights. As we transition to RDS optics on handguns, these all sights have become the new standard. Conventional sight pushers couldn’t install them and we were back in the Bronze age with hammers pounding them in. XS has changed that for Glocks and a secret SIG model is under development.

XS Sights is known for making the fastest sights in any light. Now they have come up with an innovative tool that changes the game. Made in the USA from 6061 T6 aluminum that is hard coat anodized, versatile, durable, and reliable, the XS sight pusher tools make changing sights on Glocks easy. All the more reason to upgrade your factory sights with XS night sights.

The unique open-top design of these tools allows easy visual alignment and viewing of the installation process, while the locking wedge feature makes it quick and easy to secure the slide. The brass pusher has a built-in centering scale for precision windage adjustments.

The aluminum body won’t mar your finish and it is 40% lighter than sight pushers on the market. The compact, lightweight footprint of these sight pushers make them ideal for the range or traveling to a class.

XS® Sights has two models: the DIY Series™ and GUNSMITH Series™. Both are fast and easy to use, reducing installation force by up to 50%.

 DIY Series™ Sight Pusher Install Kit for Glock®

Engineered for the do-it-yourselfer who owns or maintains multiple Glock pistols, the DIY-Series Sight Pusher Install Kit for Glock allows users to easily complete a wide range of sight installs on all Glock slides, including optic/suppressor-height sights. An Allen key, included in the kit, is turned to move the pusher back and forth across the slide, and the process of installing and removing sights requires up to 50% less force with the XS tool than other available sight pushers due to the low placement of the pusher bit.

This sight pusher weighs 1.4 lbs. and is rated for 50-100 sight installations.

Retail Price: $150.00

GUNSMITH-Series™ Sight Pusher Install Kit for Glock®

Engineered for professional use, and DIYers who demand the best performance from their tools, the GUNSMITH Series offers the fastest Glock sight installation. Instead of an Allen key to move the rear slide, this tool comes with a T-handle for even more leverage and easier turning to slide the rear sight. The handle doubles as a front sight tool and both it and the tool bolt are equipped with magnets. The magnet in the bolt head secures the multi-function T-handle while installing rear sights. When installing front sights, the magnetic hex bit securely holds the Glock front sight’s screw in place for a drop-free installation process.

This series fits all Glock OEM and aftermarket slides and is Glock MOS compatible for easy installation of sights with a red dot sight mounted on the pistol.

This sight pusher weighs 1.8 lbs. and is rated for 200+ sight installations.

Retail Price: $200.00


XS Sight Pusher Tools are optimized for use with their XS R3D and F8 Night Sights, but they will work with most other brands of aftermarket sights. (Aftermarket slides do not mirror Glock’s exact dovetail. Users should expect to apply 50% to 75% more force on aftermarket slides which applies more load on the tool, reducing lifespan).
