   No need for adaptors with the Wheeler Engineering tool . I was going to buy the new Range master from MGW, but all the different adapters ( same as their Sight Pro ) & the fact that it couldn't be used on a lot of 1911 type pistols , like its big $$ Sight Pro , turned me off , that & all the emailed Questions & no answers about that restriction . Plus I needed a sight pusher now , I went with the Wheeler , its probably not the best but has a load of people saying it works fine on every sight they used it on , is why I went with the Wheeler .

   This thing is built like a Tank & its going to get a work out this week , both in adj. mounted sights & a complete replacement .

 If you want to send your slide across the Country for sight replacement , go for it , i'm in :laffs:

    It works pretty good , took some practice to get it all correct for the Push , it also took some light taps of a small ball peen Hammer to get the sight to move or break it loose , but other then that , it was easy .

  I put tape on all sides , on the slide sides to protect t it from the Tool & both ends like they show in the instructions to mark the middle of the sight .

 The slide on the M&P Shield is so short that the top clamp down was in the middle of the Ejection port . Kinda awkward , but still works as it should have .

 Front Sight seemed to twist a little in the Dove tail , had to reset the Slide so the Pusher would straighten out the long fiber optic part of the Sight , but it works out OK .

  Back sight had a Spring loaded base for , I think a Disconnector , I will have to look at the break down of a Shield , I don't really know what it is , the Rear Sight olds it in place or what could be called , Captive . I was going to push the Sight on , Left to Right , but with that Captive Spring assembly , I had to go , Right to Left , so to hold down that Spring loaded component .

 I will use a Brass Bar or brass head Hammer ( which is what I will do from now on ) to hit the Sight Pusher , their way of taping on it with Pin Punch was almost impossible , with out the Tool in a Vice . Its a work in progress , I had a small Ball Peen Hammer close & my small hand Made one was too small .

 Now all I have to do is take it to the Range & use a Handgun rest to shoot & see if they need any adjustment .

Cool! thanks. Any fixed sight pistol almost always shoots 3 inches to the left of the bullseye  at 10 yards for me. It is my eye, not the sights problem. So I could use that on a number of pistols.

     I'm telling you , my two new Sigs shoot so far to the left I was missing the Target ,stand & all @ 20 yards . When I compensated & aimed for the right side of the Target , I was hitting the wood post holding the cardboard that the Target was stapled to , with both Sigs , so it could be me, but I've never missed the Target like that , bad eyes , old eyes , all the excuses I can muster , never shot & had a Handgun shoot that far to one side or the other .:lmao:

  This tool will fix it , the Pistol shot from a rest will tell me more on what is really going on & I may go to the range tomorrow , ahead of the Hurricane .

Watch that hurricane, they never know exactly what they will do. Stay safe.
