    I've used Al's gun shop in Forest Grove (Verboort) a couple of times for some gunsmithing and was very satisfied.

    You might try: Springer Precision :: The XD Specialists
    They are located in Bend. I didn't see any prices listed, so you would have to contact them to find out.
    If I owned an XD/XDM, i would have them do the install for sure.
    FYI, they only need your slide for the install.

    That's not a bad suggestion, but I prefer not to take the extra time and money to ship the slide to them to perform a job that can be done in a matter of minutes. There has to be a good place here where I can walk in and out on the same day.

    Seriously, if you don't mind driving to Forest Grove give Al's a call. He should at least be able to give you lead time and pricing. (503)357-2441

    You may already know this but the front sights on the XD's are notoriously difficult to remove. It's suggested they are installed with a hydraulic press. I wouldn't be surprised if it takes some amount of effort to find someone locally who's set up to complete that task in only a few minutes without damaging your gun.

    I'll toss this out if you have time to look, there should be some good first hand data on local gun shops here:

    Al's is listed on the third page or so.
