The one that works the best is the newer MGW Glock TALL sight tool for Glocks.
I get mine from TopGun Supply.

thanks for the confirmation.

I also found the post by John_Wayne777 the M&P tool being compatible.

Anyone just use a brass or derlin punch with success?

I'd rather avoid buying a specialized tool that costs as much as the part that I'm planning on installing IF there are other less costlier tools that can successfully do the same thing albeit with a bit less finesse.

I did find plenty of people that did it without the mgw tool when I searched warren sight installation with google.

I made the decision to purchase the tool based on
two factors

1. don't want any chance of screwing up
2. I am committed to the Glock platform, and will be acquiring more glocks (planning on another 19, and a 26 at least), so the tool will be used more than once.

I was unable to get my Warrens past being even with the edge of the slide using a punch -- and I beat on them hard. Finally gave up and pressed them, back when I had access to a good machine shop at work.

I hate being in these predicaments... especially the night before a range day. I guess I'll be shopping for a sight tool.
