    I need to change my sights on my Walther PPQ. I have them in hand, have done them before, but have been too busy to do myself. They're Dawson sights and are recommended to be fit with a punch, tapping them in, and careful filing/test fitting.

    Who's reasonable in price, does good work, and is relatively close to the loop OR Spring/Woodlands area to do the work?

    Thanks!

    The gunsmith shop at Spring Guns & Ammo did my last set and I have no complaints. Price was $35.00 and they did it while I waited.

    Sweet! Was this the one on I45N? If so that's close and will work great. Did they zero them?

    BTW few follow up items on this.
    A) Smith is only available at the Spring location.
    B) $35 is Glock sights. Walther they wanted $52.50+ tax.
    C) Told me to drop off and it would be a few "weeks" to get done.
    D) They make no effort to zero them and just leave them "centered".

    No way I'm using that place. Any other recommendations?
    Guess I need to get off my lazy butt here and do it myself...

    Shiloh shooting has a gunsmith on site who will change sights out for $25, they have the tools for many guns there. It's where I got my new sights on my sig done. Willowbrook area, not too far from Spring.

    Thanks for the info here! I think I'll bring it by there this Thurs and hit the range while I wait. I used to shoot IDPA there and love that spot. I'll call tomorrow to confirm and update how my experience goes.

    How did you like IDPA there? It's something I think I'd enjoy getting into once I have free time again.
