    Default Handgun sight removal/install or adjustment

    So you guys DIY or take it to a smith if you need to adjust or install sights??

    Here's the deal - I have a new Kahr MK40 with Tritium sights, but the front is WAY to the left - almost out of the dovetail.

    I DON'T want to use a punch, especially since they're Tritium. And $600 for a universal tool from Brownells seems WAY overpriced.

    But I do like doing things myself - and I have many other handguns - XD's, 1911's, etc that I could conceivably use a tool on.

    Finally - if a smith, who and how much?

    Rule of thumb with tritium sights...

    You do yourself to save $25, you break one accidently, you buy new sights.

    You take to gunsmith, you pay $25, he breaks them accidently (not likely), he buys new sights.

    And sometimes its free if Im in a good mood

    Yep

    We were tired, hungry and aggravated so we gave folks who walked in the door Rugers at $20 over cost just to reinstate our Karma...

    Ya know, the old name your price game:

    "Dude you want this one...OK how much you give me for it? Ya sure? Yours, pay the girl..what else ya need?"

    Someone is going to get something cool tommorow...random selection
