I had my Norinco fitted with a set of Millet sights which have white border line on the rear while the front sight has a beautiful orange luminous paint. Can I possibly have the slide finish converted from blue to say, electroless nickel without taking off the newly-installed sights. The gunsmith had a hard time installing these and I'm afraid the sights could break if it will be taken out.

P7 was right. The sights have to come off for re-finishing. You could have your 'smith do it prior to shipping. They'll probably come off a lot easier then they went on the first time.

I just got a gov't model back from Virgil Tripp for chroming. Virgil's fame came from his shooting and gunsmithing abilities long ago, and I let him deal with things like sights.

The gun, btw, is beautiful.
