Changing P07/09 sights with a Sight Pro
« on: March 01, 2019, 07:29:00 PM »
My MGW Sight Pro slide shoe for CZs will be delivered tomorrow.  Plan on putting Dawson FO fronts and black rears on my P07 and P09.  Any problems I should anticipate?

Actually ordered a 75B 40 and a set of CGW EZ9/40 sights.  Going to start there.  Gun should be here by end of the week.

I realize this is a pretty old ( 120days since last post) but I thought I would add this. First let me say this RST Universal Sight Pusher is not in the same league as  a Sight Pro but for those who want to change their own sights every now and then and do not want to pay $249-$399 for a (arguably one of the best Pro tools) watch this howto video for the RST Sight Pusher (Gen4):
NOTE: In the video you will see a thin metal guide. I thought "UGH, they are using this to move a sight but then continuing to watch the video I found out that is just a guide to keep the pusher head  oriented correctly.

I bought one on Amazon.com for around $84 (I think). It should arrive this Friday and I will post my findings. It is not pretty but well made and beefed up where it needs to be. These are made in France and I understand they are on EBay also. I was set to pull the trigger on a Sight Pro and when I searched for it on Amazon.com several cheaper units showed up also. This one was  among them. I was not sold until I watched the video and I decided it is all I need for my personal use plus it didn't kill the pocket book. There are spare parts available plus some optional components to work on HK's etc. Hoping it works well for me.
Always looking up!

I've owned several sight pushers. (including the mgw sight pro)

My preferred method is to use a heavy vice (padded) with the slide sitting low enough it's not possible to damage any of the finish if my aluminum punch slightly misses.

It seems counter intuitive but I've found it less prone to damage and easier to work with (a vice and a punch)
