I don't want to do it myself. I called one place and was quoted $50 per gun to install sights I already have (I have 2). That seemed a like it might be a little high to me. Any recommendations on where to go?

That sounds fair. . What type of pistol? XD? XDm can be tough.
You could do it yourself. Glock would be easy with a sight pusher or you could just use a punch and remove. You could damage the old sights with a punch if they are polymer like the glocks

I had a armscoat in McKinney knock some in a h&k for $20. Check with some coating / hydro dip guys. My assumption is they do it all the time. McKinney is a bit of a drive for you.

They are Glock 19's. I'm not afraid damaging the old sights, I just don't want to mess up the new ones or the slides. I'd rather pay somebody than chance it. I'll pay $100 if I have to.

Good idea Normanpig! I'll try that. Thanks!

$50 is a fair price

Too bad you aren't closer to Brazos County. I would do it for free.
