Night sight installs, who's got the best service for the price up north?

    I'll probably be ordering night sights soon, wheres the best/relatively cheapest place to get them installed?I see some crazy prices just to get sights installed.

    The set I want have to be slightly stoned on the bottom so I'm not sure if I want to screw that up.

    Or if anyone wants to help me not screw it up for beer/lunch that would work also

    I bought my own sight press. It is a universal type, and have different blocks to accommodate different slides. It was less than the price to have a set installed.



    The other tip, is to strike a deal with a local shop for free installation if you buy the sights from them. I’ve done that in the past.

    Good idea; what brand/model did you buy?

    It looks like this one (though I cannot remember the exact brand):

    You just have to take your time setting it all up, and press gently (lube everything, it helps a ton)

    I’ve installed a handful of sights, with no issue.

    I use the same setup and have installed 4-5 sets of nights sights. No issues, has worked every time.. as advised above take your time set it up right and it works.

    I did not know this.
    Only on guns purchased from you, I presume?
