pistol sight adjustment tool

Hello folks,
I am thinking about buying one of universal pistol sight adjustment tool.
Mainly it is for my none sig pistol....however I came across sight adjustment tool from Sig webisite and they are very expensive compare to universal ones I was looking at.
Now, would universal one work on sig pistol? I've also noticed that Sig had two different versions, one for P series and the other for sp2022 only.
What is the difference between universal ones and Sig ?
Also any recommendation for universal ones? They have few different ones from Amazon range from $30-60 ish..
Thanks in the Advance.

I would not suggest getting a sight pusher for one handgun. If you own several the universal models are best but the cheaper lighter ones will have a tough time moving a sight securely in the dovetail. The beast out there is the MGW Sight Pro. Not cheap but it will handle anything out there and in the future.

BTW, to do the entire Sig line you need at least three models.

The best is arguable. If the best is one that will move just about every sight on every handgun, is virtually indestructible even if run over by a car and is reasonably priced, then I would say it's the best.

The best IMO is the Sight pusher. I've got one I've used on a number of different handguns including 4 Sigs, Kahr PM9, several Glocks and a couple of 1911s. I recommend it highly. Use the extra money you save to buy more ammunition and increase your shooting skill.

That will never push the sights in all the 320's I've done lately. Even the MGW unit took one hell of a amount of force to move. I'll stick with the best.

The pusher blade is hardened steel.
Which is why I like the nylon unit on the MGW.

And I guarantee you it will. That's because I've actually used it on Sigs and the amount of force to move all Sig sights I've done is very high, high enough to require a 9 inch wrench to get enough leverage.

I had no problems using it on all my P-series SIGs. But I too had to use the big wrench for my M&P front sight. It will push almost anything.

My concern is if it can be used in the field. While the Sightpro is massive, I can adjust in the field. I didn't want something that required a vise.

Not sure if that is a requirement of the OP, but it is a good point to consider.

The Sight tool doesn't require a vise. You can use it with one, but it isn't required at all. I did my first 6 guns without a vise using it. It just makes it easier when doing really tight sights like Sigs.

If it pushed out hand fit 1911 sights on four of mine it will certainly push anything out.
In fact I bet it would push a golf ball thru a garden hose it's so good.
