Front Sight Installation Tool For Glocks

If you are going to install a new front sight on your Glock pistol you will need a special tool or wrench. Regular wrenches, drivers and sockets are too big and fat to fit into the tight confines between the screw head and the slide wall and their rounded front head is usually won't get a good grip on the low-profile screw head of the sight post screw. If you try using a pair of needle nose pliers or a small wrench you may end up scratching or damaging the inside of your slide.

If you buy a front sight installation too for your Glock, do your research. Cheap sight installation tools are usually made out of aluminum or some other soft metal and don't last too long. They seem to strip and become useless after a few uses. The way this one looks, it should last a lifetime.

The 3/16" Wiha Nutdriver is a precision, exact fit, narrow profile wrench is perfect for installing the front sight post on a Glock pistol. This wrench works great when you want to remove or install the front sight screws on a Glock pistol. The slim profile of the driver fits between the hex head of the nut and the slide wall.
