Adjustable sights

I have a Browning HP MKIII. I am wanting to put adjustable sights on it. Has anyone used this model SPR62BN18 from these guys. I believe this is made by LPA. I would like to know, how the fit and installation went and the final outcome. Thanks.

That looks about the same as the Mec-Gar made sights I have used on my HPs.

If so they are quite good.

FWIW

I have one on my FM90. I like LPI/PSI sights. I have them on several of my pistols. George M.

I went ahead and ordered the sight set. Does anyone know which way the front and rear sights come off the slide and the best way to do it. I would prefer to do it myself and not take it to a smith.

Hello,

Remove the sights from Left to Right and expect them to be Tight.

But, you'll first need to remove the sear lever, so you can remove the extractor, so you can clamp the slide in a Smooth Face Machinist Vise without damaging the extractor and bending it's pin (remember, the extractor protrudes past the side of the slide). You'll also want to use something to protect the slide like Brownells Leather Vise Pads, or some very dense heavy paper (like some strips of quality index cards - or cut a Manila Folder into strips, ect) and be Extra Careful that you don't crush the slide - especially the front section when you clamp it.

If the sights won't budge after a coupla solid hits, then STOP and take the slide to a Machinist and have him mill a deep relief across the sights (from side-to-side) so they'll drift-out.

Well I received the sights in the mail Friday. They are nice in real life. They do say LPA on them. I removed the rear sight with not to much difficulty. I was concerned about damaging the slide. I stopped after that. I could not remove the front sight nor can I get the new rear sight on and I don't want to cause any damage. I guess I need to find a smith to finish putting them on.

That's a good plan. Short of having the appropriate sight pushers and a wealth of experience using them it's the best plan.
