Trijicon on a Beretta PX4

Anyone know of a local Houston gunsmith to do the install or should I just mail the slide to Trijicon to do it?

Personally, I'd send it off.

In years past, I've used local gunsmiths.. and still likely would for something like a 1911 needing sights replaced.

But, I've seen a lot of posts about gunsmith who have scratched the hell outta frames trying to switch sights. Some guns have some VERY tight slides/slide cuts.. Personally, I'd send it to a place that does a LOT of sights of MANY guns. I'd send it off to Trijicon if it were me. I did that with a Beretta 90-Two last year, and will do it to a Beretta 92A1 later this year...

HOWEVER, I believe that Fountain Firearms has a gunsmith on duty if you really want to do it locally.

Yeah I've heard the same thing plus horror stories of broken lamps, etc, just curious if there's a real good reputable knows-what-he's-doing-with-Berettas gunsmith around. Seems everyone does XD, Glock, S&W, 1911 and stop there.

Clint @ Hot Wells took off (and put back on) the front sight on my PX4 SC without issue, but since he doesn't mention Beretta in his info, I wouldn't want to trust him with sights that are apparently easily breakable.

Well, Dave Olhasso is a Beretta expert... He sells stuff, but if you contact him, he can do various work on Berettas... (he will do sights despite it not being listed on his site)

A lot of guys on the Beretta Forum use him for 92 stuff.

But, that still revolves around you sending off the slide...

Trijicon has installed night sights on two of my Beretta's (PX4 & Cougar L). They do a great job, no scratches. The only downside is each time it has taken at least 5 weeks to get the slide back.

If you have a gunsmith install them, Beretta sights go off and on the opposite way of most guns.

As you're holding the gun to shoot, they come < Left OFF < and go > Right ON >.
Cougars are shy, reclusive, and downright mysterious... :icon_wink:

My 90-Two took 4.5 weeks in May 2010 (from Trijicon)

Looking like sending to Trijicon will be my route. I just got a new competition gun, so my PX4 can spend some time in limbo.

That's probably the best way to go...

FWIW, Trijicon took 7 weeks to get my slide back to me. They quoted me 3-6 weeks, so I called them on week 7, day 1. They called me back the next day with no idea why my slide wasn't already back to me. It'd sat there for three weeks, done, not being sent out. They sent it back to me 2nd day. Their customer service guy was real nice, didn't try to make any excuses and just tried to do his best to fix what he could (getting it back to me ASAP).

Next time I'll probably try sending the slide off to someone else (ToolTech?) when I undoubtedly get another PX4.
