How difficult is it to change sights on a Glock?

I understand the front sight is just screwed on with a 3/16" hex nut. But how 'bout the rear sight? Do I need a sight pusher or anything?

I'm no weinie, and I've done my share of gun work. I've just never installed pistol sights before.

I got the sight pusher from Glockmeister to do it with and used the Glock factory tool for the front sights. It seems expensive, but when you are going to do 6 guns of your own and about 10 for some buddies it pays for itself in doing it right. Just my $0.02.

With the right tools, it is a piece of cake.

Alright... The Glockmeister pusher doesn't seem like such a bad deal for what you get. I was originally looking at the Glock factory pusher that sells for like $150.


Considering that Heinie charges about $85 plus shipping for a sight install, the money for the tools doesn't seem quite that bad.

The MGW sight tool works great and is about half the cost of just one of the Glock sight pusher and fits both large and small receivers.

A ground down 3/16" nut driver works great for the front sight nut.

You are a wealth of useful information for all things GLOCK.

ok, its EASY to remove the stock glocks sights; you can use a pair of pliers to yank off the front ones, and use a punch and mallet and some slight tapping to remove the rears (the rears are so movable, mine moved half way out when my G26 fell onto my parking lot from my truck's seat)

anyways, get some good, quality steel sights, preferably nights for carry (trijicons, meps, heinis are nice)
