I have a Springfield TRP and the rear sight needs to be moved to the right. I don't want to hit the sight with a hammer and damage the tritium. Can someone recommend a brand of sight pusher for the 1911, and where it can be purchased?

Thanks
Stinky

Get a piece of heavy channel iron of an appropriate size. Drill and tap it for a fine thread 5/16 bolt and you will have a sight pusher. A small piece of brass taped to the side of the sight will protect it from damage by the bolt. If you have soft jaws for your vise you can use a short piece of brass rod to do the job.

I'm not familiar with channel iron. Is this just a U shaped bar/plate of metal, like what they use for street sign posts? Where can you get it?
