Gunsmiths

Ever been pissed off at one? I'am not pissed yet, but getting close!?! Dropped off my Glock 19 over a week ago to have night sights installed,and have been told it would be ready on two seperate days! So far nothing but two wasted trips over there!

A delrin punch and hammer works just fine. How much is he charging?

Well run

I've never done anything like that and didn't want to screw them up. I bought the sites from him so he doesn't charge for the install. I thought you had to have a expensive site pusher to intall them?

Hell no, shak

knock them out from left to right, instal from right to left. Now you may have to use a small file to remove small amounts of material from the rear of the dovetail, but if you have a bit of patience, it takes about 30 minutes to do it. I've installed four sets so far

greasy I just read

that one of the officers in that ambush died tonight. My deepest sympathy to his friends and family.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!
