    i have a fixed sight g23, and i would like to replace the sights with some night sights. how hard would the sight change be? is it something i can do myself? or should i just have a gunsmith do it? i'm not trying to be cheap, i just like to do as many things myself as possible.

    When I bought the night sights, they installed them for me. Took like 3 mins.

    All I use is a small wooden dowel and a hammer. I've changed a lot of them that way. I have an actual site pusher for glocks, but the wooden dowel and hammer is actually faster.

    and you weren't scared of smashing the tritium in the night sights?

    Not at all. they take more abuse from the recoil of my gun than when I tap them out with a soft wooden dowel.

    The front sight is the tough one. Make sure it's tight. I've always used the Glock sight tool for the front sight.

    Most of the newer after market front sights nowadays are just screwed on. Not a lot of need for front sight stalking tool anymore. I just use tweazers to pull out the little plastic wedge.

    They make specific front sight screwdrivers for 2-4 bux. make sure you use loctite and watch that front sight. They ahve a knack for loosening if they are not loctited.
