what kind of gun shop can't install sights? it's not rocket science. The rear side slides in with a drift punch or various other tools and the front sight screws in. If you are apprehensive about installing yourself you can send them to Argyle Armoring, he is one of our Vendors.

The XS sights are incredible. It is mind blowing how fast you can get on target in all kinds of lighting. My groups tightened up and became more center mast the first day out.

Amazing. I had very expensive night sights before and i do not miss them. For example I do drills every few weeks when the house is empty at around 2am. I leave my microwave light (over stove) on law all the time, and in ther living room my DVR gives off some light, and you have the windows through the house that give some ambient light. I have absolutely no issues getting on target with a very clear sight picture.

I know they are pricey but you will never regret XS sights.

What i think he was referi g to was the a slide pusher. He told me if i installed them to use a 1/8 inch punch. Everyone i have talked to has said these sights are dynamite.
I'll go a different direction with this. A sight pusher is the best way, but most do not have them. Skip the punch, they slip, they mar, and your hands will be upset.

Wrap a cloth around your slide and put it in a vice right side up as if it was on the gun. Push the sight in by hand till it stops. Take a plastic wedge (they sell them for cutting down trees, getting into cars, etc for like $4 at home depot) and put it against the sight at an angle so that the wedge is sort of pointed directly at the slide where the side and the top meet. I know it is confusing but when you go to do it you will know what I mean. Now gently tap on the wedge with a rubber mallet.

This will guide the sight right in super easy and not tear it up. You can also put a strip of paint tape over the wedge if you think it's rough.
