    Thinking about sending one of my BHP slides in to Novak's to have better sights installed. Has anyone had good luck doing this? It's currently close to POI with the tiny sights. Should I spend the extra money to send in the whole gun?

    Anywhere else I should look for similar services?

    Is your gun an MKIII or older variant?

    It will require some milling either way but the MKIII are less. The best thing to do is to send the whole gun but that means costly shipping.

    I had a complete work over on mine so I sent the whole gun but many people have had great success with sending the slide only. Personally I would just send the slide. $10 shipping versus $50+

    That's what I was thinking. It's a c-series Belgium.

    It will need to be milled.

    Ask Novaks or whoever you're sending it to what they recommend you send.Trijicon and Glock only wanted my slide.There's a big difference in shipping. A call might save you quite a few bucks.

    Yeah, I've read those and I'm aware it needs milled. Anyone tried anywhere else, or what was your experience with Novak?

    Which, btw, that's got to be one of the worst laid out websites I've seen.
