    So I have a Kahr CW9 and I want to get some night sights, Kahr sells the set for them for 80 which is a good deal but I am not confident in putting the rear on myself. I talked to a few gunshops and pretty much got blown off, even asking if they could special order the sights. The response was we are going to mark them up, and I said that was fine with that. Then I was told that it would be over a month out. I mean I know it's hunting season and everything but that's ridiculous. Most of the local shops don't want to look at you unless you are buying a $700 gun or something.
    Anyone know of a good shop to install some night sights or possibly someone local to the Gresham area that could help me put the sights on?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!

    I too own a cw9 that I'd like to have equipped with night sights. I'm under the impression that the front sight is not interchangeable only the rear which wouldn't do us much good. Please tell me I'm wrong and I'll be very happy.

    Kahr finally got the night sights in stock, I got my set yesterday. I got the front one on no problem but the back was a little more difficult, especially without a sight press.. I should have let a gunsmith put them on but was impatient. I left little marks on the sight using a punch but not that bad. That what you get for being impatient.

    A little cold blue should touch-up the rear sight where you drove it in. BTW...You are lucky that you didn't break one of the tubes from pounding the rear sight in!

    You could just send your rail back to Kahr for the sight installation..

    Ugh a little late, but thanx for the offer. Maybe after I go shoot it and see where the sights are at.

    Hey guys. Would any of you know of anyone who could competently put night sights on a Glock? Ive seen videos on youtube but as I dont have any tools or confidence in my ability Id rather have someone who knows what they are doing. Any recommendations would be hugely appreciated. Ive tried calling a few gunshops to see if they do it but its been tough to get through most of the time.

    Yes, I was having issues seeing my fiber optic front so Eric (Glock Armorer) at NW Armory dug into his old glock sight baggie and gave me a stock front and installed it. Checked out my action, wiped down the gun and blessed it. Even during gun store madness. +1. Got my vote.
