Email : custom@mmcsight.com

The above, MMC custom shop in Las Vegas, may be a good
place to start.

Their website says they will be state of the art and
fully functional in October.

Thanks Tracker, I will give them a call and if they can do it I think I'll send them my LCP first to see how it goes.
Good Luck,

 I spoke with the place that did the work on coreys gun, and they said they tried doing inserts on a Rohrbaugh and there was not enough meterial left, and the inserts would not stay in.

That makes sense to me; there just isn't enough real estate.

Well according to Trijicon and Tool Tech, the company that Trijicon recommends to do the site installation, you simply can not get nightsites put into a R9.....bummer. †They told me that it isn't that the sites fall out, which is what I read else where, but that they actually break during the installation, seems odd but oh well.

Dovetail the slide ... insert proper height f/s with proper "glow" ... feel the glow ...

After some previous experiences with a cracked slide I would not touch it to add sights.

I will defer to your experience then; certainly not worth the risk if you've been down that road.

IMHO, if you need night sights with a Pup, something is wrong.(unless you just wanna do it for the sake of it).

I asked about some kind of night sights before I bought my pup.  Now, I wouldn't even think about it.

This gun fits my hand so well and points so naturally that I don't think sights are really needed.
