If you have a vice, you can go old school. I use a small piece of oak, so as to not mar the finish, and a hammer. Cover the jaws of the vice to protect the pistol, also. Measuring adjustments with calipers, I've been able to get the sights close enough for combat shooting.

I have the Sight Pro tool and am extremely pleased with it. I even have slide “shoes” for guns I don’t own because when I do work on them, I want a tool that will make the sometimes fiddly job of sight installation as trouble free as possible.
I admire people who use other methods of installing sights in the same way as I admire men who shave with straight razors, heat their houses with wood they’ve chopped themselves, and brew their own beer. My time is too valuable to me and my tolerance for frustration is too low for me to do those things, however, and therefore I seek out the methods of saving time and aggravation.
I can tell at sight a Chassepot rifle from a javelin.

I have a B & J sight tool, and although I have not tried it on a P365, it has worked on anything I have tried it on. Not high tech, a little slow, but works. Bought it used, for about $35., older model, but all parts were there.
