    Where you at? Letz's in Springfield would do it, I'm sure. Never had work done by him, but I've bought a few things from him and I used to coyote hunt with him. He's a pretty good guy.

    Send me a PM. I'm a certified Glock Armorer, and could put them on for you in about 5 minutes. I have all the tools needed for the job and do it for my dept. regularly.

    I was wondering, how do you swap out the rear sights without losing the alignment?
    Do they still have to be sighted in?

    Thanks,

    I've changed perhaps two dozen sight sets, including all of our dept.'s Glocks. In all of those changes, I've only had to "adjust" one rear sight.

    IMO, the vast majority of recent-vintage Glocks (past the mid-90s, say), are so well machined that they're dead nuts on, just by centering the new rear sight in the center of the slide. I do it by eyeball, and like I said, there has been a whopping ONE that I needed to adjust.
