Scratched or smashed Glock or Dan Wesson . If it's a small scratch and a Glock . Probably not worry about it . If they used a sight pusher properly it may just happen again .

Had the same thing happens when I purchased a brand new handgun and had night sights installed for free. It initially bothered me but I figured that I bought the gun to be used and in a few months it will match the finish wear and occasional ding. However, if it had been the gun and not the sight itself I would of definitely had a problem.

Good luck with that. I would assume since you already took the handgun home they will try to point the finger at you...and you have no proof to prove otherwise. Tough spot. I guess call and ask them about it. Dont ask dont get.

Sights will sometimes get scratched or dinged when they are installed, I would get over it. The gun would be a different story depending on what it is.

Thats nice of them. I would just keep the sights you have on. Gives it character :).

Are you looking for a range queen or a badass navy seal force multiplier? Lol, in all seriousness that's nothing unless you like looking at your guns through a microscope.

I installed Trijicon HD sights on my 3 glocks with varying small pusher marks during installation. Don't over think those tiny imperfections. Go out and shoot your way improved glock and I promise after about 25 rounds, you'll be grinning ear-to-ear and forget about those marks.

Yep, too picky. Take a class and get some wear on your gun, then you won't care.

you'd normally keep the original factory OEM sights on a safe queen, so i'll assume it's not a safe queen.
looking at the picture in your link, it may be a scratch that is so slight that a drop or two of oil and a rag may all but eliminate it. i wouldn't be bothered by what i saw, but it's your call.

Scratch the rest of the gun to match the sights and nobody will notice, or you could ask for a refund on what they charged you for the install.

After seeing the picture, I'd place the issue somewhere between CSB and less than a first world problem. Wait 'til you see a microscopic spot of bare metal wearing in once you put a mag through it.:facepalm:

If it were me and the gun was a safe queen, I would be upset. But since I don't own any safe queens and I buy all mine to be used, I wouldn't worry about it.

You are being too picky. Do you intent to shoot the gun? If so the gun and sights will get scratches. Don't worry about it.

My favorite glock is beat to crap and scratched up after 16k+ rounds..still accurate and reliable.

Looking at your pic this is a complete first world problem and a non issue.

I love the threads about barrel finish wear from the slide cycling.

If you get a cloth and use a tear , it`ll buff right out... J/K I think you are being a little crazy!!

Way too picky. Put some rounds down range and forget about it. You don't want to be labeled as "that guy" when you walk through the door of that shop.

Whew!
You got the first blemish / nick / scratch out of the way and it's minor for sure.
Now you can go shoot it with no worries.

This!!!!!

Oil & rag, or a Q-tip dab of G96. I have worse on a AR done by one of the big names in gunsmithing at the time. I just live with it, no biggie. Like others said get some wear on the pistol and everything will match!

i do the installs of sights on my guns, and none of them have escaped without a little scratch.

Did you even shoot it with the new sights?

08-20-2016, 4:27 PM
They admitted to making the scratch but said that it is normal during installation. They don't have anymore of the same sights in stock so offered to put my stock sights back on an give me a refund. Am I being too picky here, I mean the things cost $130. Pic Attached.

Too picky. Leave it alone. It's barely noticeable.

Too picky. It was a free install. Enjoy your pistol and don't stare at the sights every time you handle the weapon.

You'll soon get over it.

I have new sights put on every new Glock I buy, but I've never had this issue.

Your not being too picky, but it is a shooter so I would move on.

Maybe choose another gun store next time...

What would you guys do?



Post a question on calguns. I hear that place is full of knowledge.

boltstop
08-20-2016, 5:07 PM
That is a very small and not very deep scratch. Forget about it.

If it really bothers you, get a touch up pen.

Seriously, don't worry about it.

I looked at the picture and didn't even see a scratch. Get over it.

If you're referring to the horizontal line, I'd leave it alone. You're lucky they didn't just pound the sight in place with a hammer.

After much worse experiences with "gunsmiths," I purchased a sight pusher & installed night sights on several of my guns without a single mark on any of them - and I have absolutely NO mechanical ability. The sight tool was worth many times the cost & I didn't have to deal with sloppy gunsmithing.

Remember, any tinkerer can hang a sign that reads "Gunsmith." And many do.

That's no big deal at all if it were mine. If your going to use the handgun, I would think the holster wear would be much worse than that minor mark on the sight.

I had my shop call me and say I need your gun another day ... We marred the sight on install and have another set on the way ... We sent it over nite

Shop owner said .... "I don't do business that way" right is right .

Guess wht I have sense bought an EMP and a Colt Comander from him ....


Trigicon sights are oversized and people not fitting them first will damage the sights gall the slide and break the pusher ..

Doesn't always happen, sometimes even worse, but it doesn't hurt to get a second (or more ) opinion!
Glad they worked out ok for you.
