Changing sights on 1911 Ruger
1 Attachment(s)
How much does a good Smith charge to change front & rear sights on a 1911.
The last smith ordered the Dawson precision ajustable night sights and installed them on my 70 series Colt and charged me $400.00.
I just bought a new set of Dawson ajustable night sights for my 1911 Ruger ($159.00) and was wondering what would be a fair price to have them installed.
Some gunsmith's and auto repairmen she $$$$$signs when a woman ask them how much it will cost.

I usually charge $35 but I would expect most places to be in the $75 range if they aren't gouging you.

Are you close to Atlanta or Chattanooga ?

No I'm in Massachusetts and currently between shops. Sorry.
Check around in your area and get some prices no need to rush into it unless your current sights have fallen off.
