    I just purchased replacement night sites for my USP compact and also SIG P229 and need to find someone that is well qualified to install these and make sure that they are accurate.

    Oh, and at a great price would be nice too

    While this may be an easy install, it is something that I have never attempted or have any experience, so any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Any recommendations? THANKS

    Where are you? There's a gunsmith in Port Angeles that seems to know his stuff...

    I am in Kenmore / Bothell area -- don't get to Port Angeles too often. But THANKS for sharing, I do appreciate it.

    Yeah, depends where you're at. In Tacoma, I'd try LEEDs on 6th Ave. They are an HK armorer, and have installed NS on a number of pistols of mine, including Kahrs, Glocks, Sigs and HKs. Good work, fair prices, and they have usually done it while I wait.

    Hey neighbour,

    Try DJs Loan and Sport in downtown Bothell, right next to the post office. They have a goodgunsmith and hes done night-sight installs for me in the past. Took about 5 days if I remember right, as hes pretty busy.

    Weren't there some members at one time that did this? It would be good to throw work their way if so.

    if you're ever in the Lakewood area, let me know. i have the HK sight tool and will let you borrow it if you like. it's easy as pie to do yourself. you can even take it to the range with you to make final adjustments as long as you bring it back sooner or later. give me a day's notice so i can bring it to my store if you want to do that.

    I've replaced and fitted every part in my Springfield 1911, and I've got the tools to do it again.

    I am a gunsmith in Port Orchard. I have the tools to do the work and a range to test the firearm at. (though going to the range takes a bit of extra time). My rates are reasonable.
