Hello, I have some questions regarding some work on a 1911.

I want to have a Novak style low mount rear sight installed. The gun has a NM slide, so would need to be machined. In addition I would like to replace the front sight with a dovetailed unit, to match the rear. Wondering what the cost for this would be and who does this kind of work? No Hi Viz sights as I plan to use this in Wild Bunch competition. Just a simple dovetailed front sight with a low mount Combat style rear.

Also would I be able to send just the slide?

Would the slide have to be stripped?

What sort of time frame would we be looking at?

Also on a different matter, who does checkering or stipling of the front strap on a 1911?

$115 for machining + $60 for Sights.

Novac did charge $285 to checker the front strap.
But they are not accepting any more work at this time.
