Canuck63 Posted December 18, 2011 Share Posted December 18, 2011 (edited) Hi all, a few days ago I posted a thread in the "General Gunsmithing" forum asking about the right way to remove the front sights fitted(and pinned) to some Les Baer slides. I got a few very informative replies and then contacted the factory to ask if they'd have sold me a couple of front sights and a magwell for my Concept V. Apart from the fact that when a customer approaches you with a kind and polite request a simple "Hi" would be VERY welcome ,especially if he's ponied up nearly US$ 10.000 (yes..LBs were THAT expensive in Italy!),they did reply that they couldn't ship anything outside the USoA without an export licence and that I'd have contacted Brownells to get what I needed! I've opted for a Techwell thanks to many members' positive feedbacks and I've been literally left on my own when I wrote LB again again asking about the right dovetail cut of the front sights!Is it an EGW...Novak....Kimber....Heinie....STI....Infinity...Smith & Wesson...Schmeisser...ErMa...Springfield...Tom...Jerry...Stan...Ollie one?I'm knee-deep in confusion and I cannot possibly order a boatload of front sights only to see which one will fit my slide(s),can I? Now I'm asking for your unvaluable help again...and I'm even ready to pay upfront to a compassionate sould willing to help me out buying those front sights for mne Stateside! Which dovetail cut is the right one? I love Les Baers but I seriously doubt I'll buy another should they be imported here again!I could have bought a "race-ready" Springfield TGO for the price of the Premier II ST and another SA for the price of the Concept V...or even a Wilson...I'm sure I'd have gotten a much better care!
