For those of you not believing the damage a bad sight pusher or a tight fit sight and excess pressure can cause I have a thread for you. On the Beretta specific forum under gunsmithing a guy has posted pictures of the bent channel in his slide.
This isn’t the place to skimp and save. Or maybe it is for you but it might be at your own peril.
I've used a Kaiser Uni-Tool for almost ten years and found that it works well, if you know how to position and manipulate the tool.
Certain pistols are just capable of having sights removed or adjusted with a simple tool, such as the Springfield XD series and Beretta PX4. For Glocks, SIGs, and most other manufacturers, it's been great. I've only done a few hundred sets, but do like the tool.
Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

It’s funny you mention the PX4. If you check out those photos the guy was drifting a tight fit rear sight on a PX4 compact. It was tight and the torque ended up crimping the channel on the slide. In this case, and other similar cases, a shoe riding inside the slide to a sufficient length would have avoided this damage.
