WTS Sight Pusher for 1911, Others




This is the JMT (Jennings Machine & Tool) Mkll ModV sight pusher. While not universal, it will work with a lot of different guns. Works real well with 1911's and will remove some very tight sights, such as Kimbers. Unlike the tools that use some sort of sliding bar that tends to pull, this tool directs the force directly at the base of the dovetail.The tool comes with specially treated jackscrews that minimize damage to the sight. Also included is a brass tipped screw that also will reduce damage to the finish on the sight. I still recommend a brass shim or piece of credit card, etc. to protect the sight. I also include some rubber sheet packing to protect the slide.

The tool will work with most 1911's, Glocks, S&W (except M&P front), HK, Sig, FN, Taurus, Ruger, etc. Sigs and FN's that have lightening cuts on the front of the slide will require some sort of shim to work with the front sights. The tool is not recommended for SA XD's or XDm's. The dovetail is too small. Pistols with slide mounted safeties must have the levers removed. Look at the pictures of how the tool mounts to the slide and you can pretty well tell if it will fit your gun.

Cost to forum members is $55 including shipping to the U.S. I normally build and ship tools on Thursdays and Fridays, with an ocassional straggler on Saturday.

I accept payment in the form of check, money order or currency. I also accept PayPal.

Is the front push screw brass tipped or only the rear one?

Thanks,
MStarmer

Only the rear. The ledge on most sights would be too small to catch the brass tip on that size screw.

I have one and it works great for Kimbers, Glocks and all 1911s. This is one tool I will never sell.

That front screw looks like it would damage the sights removed and then new ones installed because the threaded end of the screw is what is pushing on the sight.

Seems that a better design would be a floating (rotating) end attached to the end of that screw so that it remains in place (not moving right or left against the sight) while the pusher screw is turning.

Metal to softer metal contact with movement under hard pressure will leave a mark of some type both ways; cold blue was suggested as a remedy afterwards.

I have experimented with this concept from day one and have not yet found a workable solution. So far the brass tipped screw is the closest I've been able to find.

Ordered one a few days ago. Looking forward to trying it out. Why will it not work for an M&P?

It will work on the M&P rear but the way the front of the slide is shaped you would have to use some sort of shim to clamp the tool on the front. You'd need some longer bolts also.

Got a small price concession from my main hardware vendor and another from my metal supplier. As long as they'll hold these prices I can offer the pusher at $55 shipped. Don't know how long this will last. May be a one time deal.

I have enough of the "cheap" components to continue the price reduction through this weekend. After that I will likely have to return to the regular pricing.

I was thinking an empty .25 or .32 empty shell casing over the tip...

I think a .25 might be ok if it will fit over the quarter inch bolt. The small front sight screw is another matter. Its diameter is .188. A lot of front dovetails aren't big enough for a .25 case. Maybe a .22 case would work. I looked at the range the other day for an empty .25 and didnt find any. If someone has one and could try it on a 1/4" bolt and let me know???????


Ok, here's some close up pics of the sights on my "mule", a S&W 5906. The rear sight has been pushed off and on at least a dozen times. It was so tight the first time it made a loud pinging noise when it broke loose. On the front sight, you can still see the red loctite on the edges of the dovetail. These sights were pushed off with the plain steel screw, with no extra protection, tape, shims etc. Just steel on steel. Now granted, this is a $3-400 pistol. It isn't a Brown, WC, Baer, etc. I may eventually touch up the rear, though I intend to put a LPA adjustable in its place. The front, I can't see anything worth worrying about. Again, it's not a high dollar safe queen, just an ordinary working gun.

According to those dimensions it would be a tight fit.

Cartridge cases as possible improvement...

Went through my cartridge collection and found a fired .25acp case. Your 1/4" bolt (I have your pusher bolt) is an easy slide fit to depth of 0.470" till stoppage. The case is 0.610" long. It's semi-rim diameter is 0.300". which could be turned down.

This is a fired case which has expanded some. New unfired will be snugger. Maybe too snug...dunno...

Now try to find some!!!

A sectioned fired .22 Hornet case is also a nice slide fit. This rimed cartridge rim is 0.345", which could be turned down to head diameter which is ~0.300".

I will keep these slide-ons till my next pusher job and see how they work....
