I have 3 sets of Ameriglo sights that I'm going to be installing in the near future. One set of Hacks and two sets of I-Dot Pro's. Do the rear sights typically install with no fitting? If fitting is required, what normally needs to be filed or stoned? I do plan to borrow a sight pusher for the install.

I can't speak to the Hacks.
I have an MGW sight pusher and I have installed probably a half dozen sets of I dot pros with no fitting required.

Have installed two sets of Pro Operators with the MGW tool as well, no fitting required.

Using the same tool, I've installed Ameriglo sights on a Gen 2 19, a Gen 3 17 and 21 no fitting required. They've stayed put.

I've had one (out a dozen) iDot Pro rear sight that needed fitting.

You'll know when you attempt to make some fine tune adjustments to center it and as you crank down on the pusher and it "pops" and jumps a few 32nds.

My idot pros were a bit tight installing with the MGW tool. I was getting the 'poping' mentioned above. They are not going to move on their own

If you have the MGW sight pusher the chances you will need to do any "fitting" go way down.

My I dot pro installed with no fitting at all

Edit : Installed with a hammer and wooden dowel. Don't waste your money on the sight tool

Thanks for the replies, sounds like most don't require fitting. Good to hear

I also put some red loctite in the dovetail when installing. It acts as a lubricant when in liquid form and when it dries is a little extra assurance against movement.
