Over the years I've removed, replaced, adjusted, bent, and dinged more than my fair share of barrel mounted sights. I think we all have . . . at least I hope I'm not the only one. Usually it's about a three and half handed operation for me. That all changed when I acquired a Wyoming Sight Drifter (WSD) from Steve. So easy even a caveman can do it - here's proof -
My buddy's new to him Sharps showed up on the big brown truck with the front sight removed for shipping. I decided to install it for him prior to his arrival so grabbed my trusty WSD and got to work. Here is the video, watch close, it goes quick!
What is the "Wyoming Sight Drifter"?
It's a sight drifting tool using kinetic energy, in a unique spring loaded device, that
gently and accurately adjusts your sights quickly, without the fuss of normal adjustments.
It's so simple to use that you'll never leave it out of your gear bag!
RE: Browning front sight removal
As I was drinking coffee and watching the sun come up today on a cool brisk 43 degree morning I realized I never got the mail yesterday. I walked up to the mail box and found a package from Wyoming. I love getting things from Wyoming and Montana and I don't know why. I got the sight drifter. What a simplistic tool. I got my rifle out of the safe and laid it on its side. Examined the tool and after the 3rd strike the front site moved. The first two strikes were poorly executed I'm sure just trying to get acquainted with the tool. It took about 10 more strikes but it worked and worked well. This tool is a must have for anyone who has a rifle with front sites. I can't wait to show it to my friends that shoot a lot. Thank you Steve. I hope you sell enough of these to retire and enjoy life to the fullest. You deserve it. This tool and its design is awesome. A check is on the way to you. Not only has Steve come up with a design of a tool that works great, he produces that tool, and comes on sites and promotes it with confidence. Give me a few days and I'll be putting my reviews on the internet sites. Thanks again Steve.
Instruction For Use
Please make sure the gun is completely empty of cartridges. With the action open, hold the tool with the brass head against the dovetail sight with one hand, with the other hand pull the tool apart while keeping the brass head against the dovetailed sight. With the brass end against the dovetail sight, release the tool allowing the one end of the tool to impact the other. The action of the spring will provide enough inertia to drive the dovetail sight in the direction it's oriented or otherwise away from the tool.
Without the momentum/inertia involved of a hammer and punch, this tool will allow you to adjust your dovetail sights in the field. PLEASE make sure the gun isn't loaded, and with an option action, before attempting to adjust sight.

With every new tool I think well that's going to be it. Then another idea comes along, and more tools just evolve. Our newest are tools with Acetal heads. The Acetal leaves no marring or color when working on a nice firearm. We offer a double ended model with brass on one end and Acetal on the other. Then there's the interchangeable head model with an Acetal head in that package. Somewhere here there's a tool that will serve you well. Thanks for shopping.
