    I know Keith's will install night sights on any new Glock they sell, they could probably hook you up.

    "The Gun Broker" in Clackamas does it for free, while you wait. No purchase required. I had them install an adjustable Glock target sight once and it took them about 3 minutes with their Glock sight pusher.

    it's not that hard. Brass punch to remove the old sights, which will come out easily, and a triangle file to fit the sight to the dovetail on the slide. If it is properly fit, it won't get trashed when being put on.

    PS file the sight, not the slide

    Sorry for the necro, but I can't ignore the humor in suggesting the Gun Room for anything Glock related.

    I've done it myself a dozen or so times. YouTube is your friend. Check out the videos at Dawson Precision, very well done.

    The answer to this is most likely yes. A nylon punch and a little care and viola ;)

    Just remember to take it easy when using a punch and tritium is involved...:( I've actually used a pusher and have a sight pop loose and broke a vial...Luckily it was already dead.
