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.
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.
