Default Changing sights on 1911 Ruger

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.

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.
