    Need somewhere I can walk in and have 3 front sights installed while I wait. In the Spring area.
    My normal guy doesn't have the correct bit for his tool.
    Just want to swap out 2 night sights for fiber optic already in my possession. And the third sight needs to be flipped around. ( Was installed incorrectly when having slide work done .)

    I think Cam might know someone in that area. He should be along shortly to confirm one way or the other.

    What kind of sights on what kind of gun?
    Glock and Walther front sights are super trivial to install. Dove tailed sights on 1911s would need a pusher. Also, there's the chance that face-palm was because only changing the front sight would change the point of impact.

    2 1911s and one 2011.
    The sights are designed to work with the rear sights , and will not change the poi. I have had multiple discussions with the guys at Dawson if they would work , and they assured me they will.

    I paid my normal guy the $30 the "special bit" (properly contoured shoe) for his sight pusher and he did the work for free.

    Sure Stephen at Texas Rifle Works can handle that.

    I recommend to buy a vise and pusher or whatever and then you don't have to rely on anyone else in the future

    Normally I would agree , but I don't want my first try to be on a gun that is expensive and don't want to destroy the finish.
