Just got my Ruger LCP back from Innovative Arms. They did a fantastic job installing front and rear sights, a great alternative to laser (at least for me). You can find them online.

Sights? I thought the purpose of an LCP was CONTACT SHOTS :-)

Contact shots? I think you need to be better than me for that kind of shooting, ha! I will post pictures soon.

How much? How long to get back? Not sure if it would help, given the barrel size, etc.

Good stuff. The sights are small so they wont catch on anything and I know my young eyes would pick them up very easily in a hurry. I think you did the right thing having those installed on your LCP.

They dovetailed the front and rear sight?

Yes dovetail both front and rear, $150 plus another $10 for polishing the barrel. Takes 5 to 6 weeks. You just send the slide (and barrel if you want it polished).

That's pretty cool. If I had one I'd do the same.

Not sure if you will have snagging issues,

One of the many things I like about my Ruger LCP is it's lack of sights per se. I like the snag free, smooth exterior that slides in an out of a pocket holster. And let's face it....in reality what good are the sights going to do on such a short barreled belly pistol? The Ruger LCP is basically a last ditch, close quarters, up close and personal point and click pistol; not something you'd use on the 25 or 50 yard line at your local range.

Those sights will not snag if you put the gun in a proper holster. If you are an Idiot and throw it in your pocket then you need to re think your self defense action plan.
