Default Browning BDA Sights

Hello all. I have a Browning BDA (.380) that I love to shoot, but given my middle aged+ eyesight I'm having problems seeing the factory sights cleary--they are very small--front sight in is integral to the slide, rear sight is in small dovetail. I've tried every gunsmith I can find to see if anyone will add better three dot sights to no avail. It would mean the gunsmight would have to mill the slide or weld the front sight on. Looking for low profile combat type three dot sights. Any suggestion or does anyone know a gunsmith who does this work?
Thanks!

Thanks, that's not a bad idea. I haven't seen any for the BDA, but they may be out there. I'd probably still like better iron sights, but that's definately a good fall-back. Don't know why I didn't think of that...
Thx

I don't know if they specifically make them for that either. There are several laser companies out there now and it's possible.

I had a BDA for a time and I don't know of anything made for it sight-wise. I'm sure a smith could cut dovetails to mount sights but it would be costly for sure. These are very similar to the Beretta Cheetah series and there's a chance that lasers made for them would work...
