    Does anyone have any experience with the
    B & J Machine Model 500 Universal Front and Rear Sight Tool


    http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?productnumber=163458

    I'm particularly interested to receive any feedback on how well the tool works on the difficult sights like Kimber and Springfield XDs.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Oops! I probably didn't need to ask the question here. I just notice that there are 41 reviews on the web site.

    I have one and have used it on Glock, HK's, Beretta so far. I have a Sig specific model (MGW) that works very well too. It does take a few more minutes to set up and align over the brand specific models but it make up in versatility and not having to buy multiple pushers. I do recommend the use of a padded vice and rotate the slide 90 degrees to push out and keep the slide stable.

    There is a new universal that has caught my eye.

    This appears to be well made and still not as stable as the MGW units as they lock the slide in by the rails. It is about $25 more than what I paid for my B&J and about $10 more than the Midway listing (I got mine at Midway when they had them on sale).

    I have a B&J Universal 500 and it works. I have used it on 3 Kimbers. Just go slow and take care in lining up the pusher to not gouge the slide. I broke my sight pusher and B&J replaced the part with just a phone call at no cost to me, no questions asked.
