How tricky of a job is this? Is it buy the proper tool and buy the new sights and bingo?

Different makers use different dovetail configurations. Insure you get a replacement sight that is cut for that particular dovetail.

When fitting a rear sight, if filing has to be done, it should be the bottom of the sight that is filed never the sides.

Filing is a last resort and best left to a qualified gunsmith.

You can do this easily yourself IF you make damn SURE the exact dovetail cut in frame-not only the width, but also the degree of the dovetail. If you get the correct size dovetail for rear site, it's drop-in. Just be aware there's several different sizes so again-make sure to get right 1.
