    im looking for a recommendation for a gunsmith to install trijicon night sights on my xd subcompact, from what ive heard, these guns are a PITA to install.

    so i dont want any random joe gunsmith doing the work.

    I was able to get mine done on my XD Tactical, but a couple weeks ago I had an XD service model that just wouldn't budge for me. I can give it a shot if you like, but I also heard that SA will do them for you. Not sure if they charge.

    I've have the same sights installed on both my XDs. I went to Federal Way Discount guns. The first XD had them installed while I was waiting for the paper work to go through (On my 21st bday). The 2nd set was done in about 25 minutes.

    Sell the XD and get a Glock.

    Or give it to sirpuma.

    The sights on an XD are very tough to remove and install as they of a designed tapered dovetail to lock it in and they have a special tool to do this with, do not try it yourself or some back yard gunsmith.

    I considered night sights and went with Crimson Laser Grips and very happy with them.
