    Unless sight base needs to be custom fitted to slide cut try any smith with brass punch and lil' mallet. He just needs to know which way to push out old one and push in new one opposite way. Most Gander Mountain stores have gunsmith in back of store. Good smith will have sight installation tool which is proly not really needed.

    It's the front sight that can be a pain on CZ's.

    I have heard you have to drill something in order to install the front sight.

    I've installed a fiber optic front sight on several of my CZs. You just have to tap out the roll pin. I believe its left to right. Tap out the front sight. Notice that the stock front sight has a groove in it to allow the roll pin to pass under it.

    (I had to file a groove on the bottom of the new front sight in order to reinstall the roll pin. Newer sights specifically made for the CZ might already have the groove.)

    Tap in the new front sight and then reinstall the roll pin. Hope this helps.

    The CZ 75 front sight dovetail is very snug. My 9mm 75B FO front sight went in without using the pin about 30-40K rds back.

    It probably a good idea to to use the sight pin as insurance. It's not hard to do. Put the new sight "all the way in" and mark it through the pin-holes. Take it out and file it at your marks . A jewelers triangle file starts easiest for a nice straight cut. Go slow and wallow it out a little to fit the pin.

    The rear can be done with a brass punch and some tape on the sight to prevent marring the finish. Bump OUT rt to left (from rear of the pistol). Put back in the opposite way. It is easy to mar the finish with a punch. A sight pusher gives more control and shouldn't mar the finish. Not a lot of CZ gunsmiths in most places. They will have a sight pusher (expensive) made to work on the CZ. A one-size-fits-all pusher will work with someone experienced doing it.

    Thanks guys, but that is not something i would feel comfortable doing. I was hoping to find a smith locally so i wouldn't have to send it in. However if i send it in i can get a trigger job as well:) Btw these are great handguns though by far my favorite 9mm of the ones i own, have owned, or have shot.

    I'm pretty much in the same boat, but want to put fiber optics on mine. Dawson Precision sells a 'kit' with roll pin and drill bit to do the procedure.

    Call Pro Aramament in Cuyahoga Falls. They are a pretty big CZ dealer (as well as other upper end brands). I'm not exactly sure if they do smithing, but if they don't I'm sure they can tell you who to call.

    Pretty sure Fin doesnt have a gunsmith. Rich @ B&T did the sights on my G19. I have no complaints. Stonewall's staff leaves much to be desired IMO.

    Personally, Id look into maybe having it sent out. The frame is the serialized part so shipping a slide to and fro isnt a big deal through the mail. People wanting night sights on thier Beretta 92s do it all the time.

    Found a couple business cards. The Gunworks, Sandusky, OH, 419-636-3034 (Bob Snyder) and Lock, Stock, & Barrel, Lodi, OH 216-906-9534 (Steven and Summer Watson). Barthel's, Canton, OH (330) 499-4171 Have used Barthel for a few rifle mods and bluing, but not custom pistol. He was fine for those. Have not had work done by the first two, but got their cards at gunshows in the area.

    If you are not milling the slide and using the factory dovetails. the sight install is pretty straightforward. You could actually do it yourself in about 15-20 minutes.

    You might be able to get away with just sending the slide and not have to deal with the added costs of sending the actual firearm.

    Also depending on the shop you choose familiarity with the CZ dovetails and sights it can be a fairly quick job and turnaround.
