Installing night sights on a Glock

After shooting a buddy's P229 Legion with the big green front sight I'd like to install a set of night sights on my Glock 19. Is this something one can tackle themselves, or something that needs to be left to a gunsmith?
 
just a little patience, the right little socket tool, & even those of use with prehensile thumbs can almost manage the task.

Good luck.

i ground down one of my snap on sockets to fit the front sight and then used a steel punch with a 22lr shell on the end of it (to make it a brass punch :D) and a soft hammer.

although the method i used works and didnt break or bend anything, i recommend using the proper sight pushing tool.

You can also buy the front sight bit driver on Amazon pretty cheap. Just search for glock front sight tool or "3/16" precision nut driver.
A sight pusher is nice for the rear but you can do it with a hard wood dowel or brass punch. I may have done it with whatever I had lying around (screw driver maybe) before. Just use gentle taps and have the gun on a solid surface.
