      I was told this guy does real good work, I never had any thing done there, I have visited his shop, really nice to deal with. His shop has the old school look. Phone calls are cheap.

      Using A Local Shop..

      A good thing to remember is that if you are shipping your handgun out of state, it needs to go FEDEX or UPS overnight. You may get away with 2nd day air but the expense is prohibitive either way. Find a local shop. It is an easy process whether it is 'staked' or 'dovetailed'. Hope that helps!

      How was the original sight mounted? Was it tenon mounted or was it in a dovetail mount. Either way it's not all that much work to put one in. Tons of resources out there to show a person how if they went looking.

      You can't go wrong with Novak's Gunshop- they pretty much invented the dovetail sight system.
