Default Pro install of Glock sights in Santa Cruz?

Nobody has asked for awhile, I did a lengthy search.

So, I have a Gen 5 G17 and the Meprolight Tru-Dot Night Sights.
Who can install them like a boss in the Santa Cruz area?

I'm not interested in buying a tool, I'll never need to change sights again.
Thanks.

I use Coyote Point Armory in Burlingame for such things if you ever come over the hill.

I'd call markleys and ask them if they can do it. I'll drive over the hill before I go back to perrys...

I broke my sight tool recently otherwise I'd let you borrow it. Sight tools are like $25 in my google search right now. Anyone who can turn a screw can install glock sights. Almost not financially worth it pay someone to do it.

Apparently those $25 sight tools break though...

GOOD sight pushers that don't break cost a lot more than $25.

I swapped mine out using a Kurt AnglLock vise on a Bridgeport mill, and to center it used an out of spec gauge block. It worked perfectly and everything was kept square.

I know that everyone does not have access to these tools, but you may know someone in a machine shop.
