Looking to buy a sight tool to replace sights on a couple handguns (at least 4 right now)

Nothing extravagant, but something that will work easily without problems

There is a reason "proper" professional quality sight pushers, like those made by MGW (MGW Sight Pro) are built so heavily, and come with a price to match, unfortunately. But you are bound to run into sights that just don't want to come off with ease, even when you lube first and do everything right. When that happens, a lesser quality sight pusher can damage the sights and/or the slide.

No offense, the linked pusher in the previous post may work well for most sights most of the time, it looks to be better built than some of the offerings on-line that use off-the-shelf bolts and a thin-wall frame. Though be sure to look as the damage shown in one of the 1 star reviews.

Are the MGW Sight Pro MFG specific or are they just marketed that way. 3 of the guns are Sig Sauer P series, one is a 1911.

Would like to get one that's more "universal" but better quality. One that can be used on front and rear sights is preferred

The MGW Sight Pro is a mostly universal tool. However it does use a shoe (last I bought cost $17) to fit a each gun brand or line (e.g. take a show or SIG Classic P series, and a different shoe for the smaller SIG P938, another for Glock, etc. (The shoe supports the side walls of the slide from the inside to prevent damage to the slide.)
