Default Installing night sights

I'd love to get night sights put on my XD but can't bring myself to pay the install fee of $100 to have a certified gunsmith do it. Along with the price of the sights I'd be looking at $200+. I've heard that XD sights are a real pain to switch out. Is there any way I could do it myself?

Nevermind. A quick search answered my question.

That there ain't no way I can do it myself. Now that I have to pay someone else to do it I'm rethinking how bad I want night sights.

You can send the slide to Springfield with the sights and they'll install and turn around for about $70.

That does look pretty nifty! Probably a helluva lot cheaper than the option I'm looking at.
