I recently had Night Fision sights installed on my Springfield XD. Before long, the front sight stopped glowing. I contacted Night Fision, sent them photos of the sight, and they said the gunsmith used a tool on the sight post causing it to break the tritium vial. They were kind enough to send me a new front sight free of charge. However, because of more than one negative experience with gunsmiths including this one, I’m reluctant to take the pistol to anyone again.
The company provides clear instructions to install their sights, and even sells a toolkit for the job. Is installing a front sight something a person could just do themselves? Is it so complicated that it requires experience and expertise? Would the experienced gunsmiths here recommend it or not?
