Default Gunsmith recommendation

I am looking to upgrade the sights on my XD9 & XD40.
Can anybody recommend a place/person? I am located is SoCal Riverside County.

I'm looking to install either TruGlo or Trijicon sights.

I guess I'll just install the sights myself. Time to learn something new.

Only have experience swapping sights once. XS & FNH weren't 100% sure "Big Dot's" would work with my model. David did a good job; They're on straight & haven't fallen off

'D Street Gunsmithing' works out of Riverside Magnum Indoor.

I did mine with a Sight Pusher. Rear sight was on tight. Once you hear it "pop" it comes right out. I used a nylon punch to reinstall the front and rear sights.

I have had no trouble with them.
Probably because I have the right tools / skill.
