    Tru Glow TFX Installation Question

    I have an XDs I would like to put TFX™ Tritium/Fiber-Optic Day/Night Sights on. I have heard these are fairly difficult to install on the SA XDs pistols, and that several people have broken sights trying to install them. A couple of other people have said it take a special and expensive tool to do it correctly.

    Any insights?

    If it is true should I:

    • Have Springfield Armory do it, assuming they will?
    • Find a gunsmith willing to do it?
    • Give up the project?

    You can check out some you tube videos if you want to try to do it yourself . It can be done without a special tool. The biggest problem is if it fits to tight tapping to hard on the sight can break or distort the new sight. I change the sights on my glocks . Its really not that difficult. I have tooling indicators to center things up but that's a bit of over kill. Mainly depends on how comfortable you are doing it. A gun smith would be cheaper than a site tool.
