Night Sights Installation

Anyone know any good online places that I could send a slide to and have some night sights installed on them for a reasonable price?

you likely could find a local gunsmith who would put them in for what it would cost you to ship your slide, and youll get it back much quicker too.

edit:assuming you already have the nightsights or that the gunsmith carrys them. if they dont carry them there are many places online that sell them.

What kind of gun and what kind of sights --- many non-gunsmiths, let's call them technicians at stores and ranges can push one set of service sights out and another in with no problem using a sight pusher that's a little expensive to buy for 1 job at home, but then some can butcher even this simple task.

If you are talking a 1911 or other slide that needs to be milled to take the new sight than it's a job for a pro Novack's is quite good in terms of service and their sights are top notch, though there are lots that are also good or lots of smiths putting on novacks.

More info might help up give better overall advise.

Choose wisely if its a 1911. I already lost one front nite site. Apparently the installer has to have just the right touch to be able to get it staked on enough so it'll clear the bushing and still not come loose. Better yet have them dovetail the first one in so you don't have to wonder about it.

Trijicon uses a company called 'Tool Tech'.

They have done several guns for me.
