    Couple options: you can pick up a sight pusher off somewhere like eBay or amazon. I think I got mine for around $40. It’s nice to have one if you decide to build your own glocks in the future.

    You can also bring it back to the store you bought it from or bring it to a gunsmith. They can easily align it for you.

    Just don’t take a hammer to it. If you insist on doing it on your own, use a rubber mallet and possibly put a micro fiber towel or cloth over the sights first. This last option obviously poses the greatest risk to the finish of your gun.

    ATG Patch and Heavy Duty Universal Pistol Dovetailed Rear Sight Pusher Tool (Rear Sight Tool) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DMZDD6V/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_s-r9Db365M7WS

    That’s the one I bought. Great tool, and worth buying because taking it to a gunsmith can cost ya. Plus you can help friends out or use it on other guns you have.

    Unless it’s WAY off, shoot it first before you try changing anything. Both my Glocks came a bit off center but I eventually figured out that’s actually where they needed to be
