MGW Armory Range Master Compact Universal Sight Installation Tool


MGW Armory Range Master Compact Universal Sight Installation Tool
MGW Armory Range Master Compact Universal Sight Installation Tool

The Range Master Compact Universal Sight Installation Tool is designed to remove, install, and adjust front and rear dovetail sights on semi-automatic handguns. The benefit of the Universal Installation Tool over a gun-specific tool is that it accepts shoe clamps that are made specifically for each handgun, allowing one tool to do the work on multiple guns. This mechanism will take up less space on a workbench and provides a cost-effective way to adjust the sights on different handguns.

The larger tool can reach the front sights on most every model on the market. The Range Master, being more compact, is limited to a .750-inch reach from the backside of the underlug on slides in terms of front sight location.


  • Designed to remove, install, and adjust front and rear dovetail sights on semi-auto handguns
  • Accepts shoe clamps to allow work on multiple guns
  • Takes up less bench space than other sight tools

  1. Great site, but I need ACCESSORIES, especially for shotgun or 5.56. I’m thinking of a cheap starlight or infrared scope that could take the recoil of rifled slugs and be interchangeable between guns. And as chintzy as I am, I wouldn’t care where it was made. Thank you.
