    Hey guys,

    I'm seriously thinking of installing some night sights on one of my Glocks. Pretty sure I'm going with Trijicon (Grn/Yel) sights.

    But I don't know of a good reliable gunsmith to remove/install the new sights. Recommendations/suggestions on who would be a GOOD reasonabilty price gunsmith?

    Question....how exactly do I know if he/she installed them "dead center"???

    I'm open to suggestions :thumbup:

    After sights are installed, it should be test fired before letting it out of the shop.

    Glock sights are not tough to install, you could probably do it yourself.

    Take your slide off and look at the inside where the front sight is, is there a screw head or whatcha got there?

    I don't feel comfortable doing it myself. I want to make sure it's done right and properly centered for "dead on" hits. My luck I'd screw it up.

    Just want to know of a good reliable gunsmith that you guys would trust.

    thanks,

    hey i have installed several sets for friends and the latest was a laser lyte on a 27. I use a set of callipers to make sure that they are centered. and i will recenter if necessary.
