Standard Sight Tool Instructions:
- Wrap slide with cleaning patch, chamois etc. to protect the slide, use a material that will not let the slide twist in the tool.
- 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.
- Tighten clamp bolt firmly (by hand) to secure slide, then tighten jam nut “on clamping rod” against frame to increase rigidity.
- 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.
Note: 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.
