Standard Sight Tool Instructions

Standard Sight Tool Instructions:

  1. Wrap slide with cleaning patch, chamois etc. to protect the slide, use a material that will not let the slide twist in the tool.
  2. Place the slide between clamp blocks aligning sight blade with the sight, if needed use washers / shims under the slide to raise it and align the “blade” with the base of the sight.
    Holes on each side of the tool are for viewing alignment.Tip:You can also put the slide into the tool and then put the tool in a vise resting the slide on the vise instead of shimming.
  3. Tighten clamp bolt firmly (by hand) to secure slide, then tighten jam nut “on clamping rod” against frame to increase rigidity.
  4. Use a 3/4″ wrench to turn the adjusting bolt, this will move the sight blade and sight.  DO NOT TURN THE NUT!Front Sights:To achieve proper clearance for front sights remove the shim block and follow steps 1-4.

    With the standard tool a block in included to support the claming blocks when the shim block is removed, the pin goes into the small hole in the bottom of the frame.
