Yeah, but I would think that Gunsmithing includes installing sights... but I could be wrong...You know there's a whole Kimber forum a little way's down right?
I've done dozens and have never had a problem. Granted it is easier to change a Colt or a Springfield 1911 sight package, the Kimber Sights are not difficult.Changing the sights on a Kimber probably is a gunsmithing ordeal, as Kimber presses the suckers in. Removing them occasionally required cutting a notch in the sight (above the dovetail, from the top down) to remove pressure so they can be removed. If you do it yourself, be mindful of the spring and plunger for the firing pin safety that is retained by the rear sight.
When I swap the sights on mine, I plan on going with either the mentioned 10-8 or Heinie's Ledge straight eights.
Kimber does use a unique to Kimber cut, but everyone makes their sight for it (Novak's, Heinie, 10-8). Pick the one that suits you. If you go the Heinie or Novak's route, you can send your slide to them for the install. Otherwise, you'll likely be better off having a local smith do the job.
Flat, angled back and serrated? Adjustable? BoMar clone? In a fixed sight, a Heinie is going to have a flat (slightly sloped forward) serrated face, as will the 10-8, though the 10-8 has a U notch were as the Heinie is available with a square notch.I would like a rear sight that gives me a 'BOMAR'-type sight picture, if possible.
