I'm contemplating sending in my slide to get night sights installed.

Does anyone know their quality and turnaround time?

They are fast! I send my slide to have dovetail cut and install night sights both front and rear and got it back in less than two weeks.

They do excellent work and their turnaround time is one of the best in the business.

Check out Heinie.com, I'd rather have one of his Straight 8s than Novak.

I had a 1911 slide machined by them, excellent work and fast.
I installed the sights myself, as they don't install competitors sights.
Pretty weak but understandable.

Why does heinie charge so much more for sight installation?

1911

The Heinie dovetail is a different size than a traditional dovetail, so the slide requires machining.

+1 on Novaks service.

I have sent in 5 1911 to them for night site installations. Good price and fast return.
