    Yeah I would never spend that for a tool ---- I'd rather wreck a King Reflector ramp & sight OR a antique spirt level Sharps sight OR a hand made nickel silver sight on a 1700s PA rifle.

    Of course I also use a pipe wrench to remove octagonal barrels and my wine of choice is Night Train Express..

    I drift/remove sights with a brass punch and a hammer ,and have not had a problem . Just remember hit the left side 1st to remove and insert from the right side
    and it works on muzzleloaders /sharps and most of my center fires /Kimbers are difficult

    Lucifers- the odds of me having any of THOSE sights to work on is pretty much zilch.

    That's a shame. But any sight is worth treating carefully.

    That's why I use a padded vise and brass and nylon drift punches custom ground to the sight in question.

    here's the thing - the WSD is portable and no vise or special anything is needed to make those adjustments at the range/field when sussing out a gun. hard to beat for $32/shipped. i have NO affiliation with WSD, other than i have one and recognize its value - to me. YMMV.
